Schools have been adding more and more school supplies to their shelves this year, with parents increasingly asking for more of their kids to have the same items in their classrooms.
But some parents aren’t as concerned about stocking up on school supplies as they used to be.
So we’ve compiled some of our favorite school supplies from the past few years and put them in a category of their own: “What you really need” is a big topic.
We also tried to keep in mind that if you’re a parent who has a child who’s been diagnosed with a medical condition, that might mean you need something that isn’t on this list.
For that reason, some of the school supply choices below might be out of stock and others are just out of our budget.
Here’s our list of the top school supplies that you might need.
For additional school supplies suggestions, check out our guide to buying school supplies for a preschooler or kindergartener.
