A Champion top-loading backpack, a Fortnite backpack and a Rocketbook notebook are displayed against a yellow background.

It's back-to-school season, which means you can find a ton of deals for the things your children need to get back into the classroom. (It's not a bad time to stock up on office supplies, either.) 

Right now Amazon has discounted a ton of school supplies by as much as 63%. Take advantage of great deals on everything from scissors and Expo markers to binders and sticky notes, and much more -- including a wide selection of backpacks to keep it all together -- with prices starting as low as $2.


This smart notebook can stop paper waste in its tracks and allows you to keep a digital file of all your most important notes. It measures in at 8.5 by 11 inches and features 32 pages of dotted grids that can be wiped down with a damp cloth when you're ready for your next big project. Once you write something up, use the free Rocketbook app, which is available on both iOS and Android, to send your handwritten notes to the cloud or in an email. You have to use a Pilot Frixion Pen, but that, along with a microfiber cloth, comes with your purchase.  


This kid-sized backpack features multiple pockets and padded shoulder straps, as well as a detachable lunchbox.
