8 Must-Have Back-To-School Products From Walmart Under $50

It's a time that only comes around once a year, and it's full of excitement, emotion and so much shopping. New clothes, supplies, shoes and maybe even a few things just for fun — yup, it's back-to-school season!

As the new school year approaches, there's one place in particular that millennials swear by when it comes to price and overall selection of school gear: Walmart.

Finding the things your kid actually wants doesn't have to mean emptying your wallet. Walmart is the exclusive retailer of trendy brands, like Justice, so your tween can hit the school halls in style. Plus, there are gadgets, craft supplies and stationery to help the kids kick off the school year right.

And now you can do all the pre-September shopping without even having to set foot in a store. Walmart is offering free shipping and pickup on Walmart.ca orders over $35 (though some restrictions apply, visit the website for details).

If you need help writing your back-to-school shopping list, these eight products can give you a headstart.
