It might seem like it’s the middle of summer, but parents know that the school year will start again in no time. It’s never too soon to think about back-to-school ideas and back-to-school gifts to get the kids excited, and now Target is helping us out, big time.

Target’s back-to-school sale is here! It’s the best way to stock up on classroom basics, plus it never hurts to look for fun back-to-school gifts for your kiddos.

What Can I Find at Target Right Now?

Everything you’ll need to make the school year a good one!

Target’s deals are ridiculously good—with ruled notebooks starting at 50 cents, an 8-pack of pencils starting at 50 cents and a 10-pack of Bic pens starting at just 99 cents. Don’t forget erasers at 49 cents, colorful pencil sharpeners (65 cents) and safety scissors ($1.49).

Looking for more fun stuff? You can also get a 24-pack of Crayola crayons (50 cents), a cute butterfly binder ($4) or a monster pencil case ($9.99). Plus, washable markers start at 50 cents, and if your kids are starting geometry, don’t forget to grab a compass and protractor set ($4.29). If your little one is left-handed, don’t forget a pair of left-handed scissors, too.

If you’re a teacher, grab a 25-pack of colorful Sharpie markers ($21.99)—you can save $5 if you spend $25 on Sharpie products! You can shop the full sale on Target’s website, and get everything you need shipped to you in as little as 2 days.

When Does It Start?

The sale is already underway, so you’d better make your way to your closest Target or the website ASAP. We’re expecting the deals to run through the end of summer vacation, but things might sell out quickly.

Make the first day of school great with these fun breakfasts.
