Even though it's hard to believe that back-to-school is nearly upon us, the feeling of new fall clothes and fresh school supplies gets a lot of us pretty excited for a fresh start — whether you're a student or parent.
While you're busy getting organized for the upcoming semester, it's always a smart move to save time (and money) by finding a one-stop-shop for all your school essentials. In-store or online, every little bit helps!
The good news: Walmart Canada can help with what you or your kids need for the new school year, no matter how it unfolds. Plus, their prices are always low. The not-so-good news (depending on how you look at it)? You're probably going to want to snag pretty much everything — including checking out Walmart Online Grocery’s pick-up and delivery services.
With so many fun and useful back-to-school products at everyday low prices, no one would blame you for leaving with a cart-full of items. From stationery and backpacks to apparel and shoes, here are some of the top Walmart must-haves whether you’re studying in class or at home.
You can basically guarantee that we've all used BIC Assorted Cristal Pens at some point in our lives. They're classic for a reason: their various colours and smoother ink system make note-taking easy. Now, all that you've got to focus on is keeping up with your professor and jotting it all down.
If your kid is on their way to becoming the next Van Gogh (or just enjoys drawing in general), get them some Crayola Coloured Pencils for art class. These gems provide smooth, even coverage and vivid hues. Bonus: Crayola looks out for the environment by using reforested wood for its pencils (so when a tree is harvested, a new tree of the same species gets planted).
Everyone makes mistakes, and luckily, when it comes to schooling, you have the option to erase and restart. These BIC Velocity MAX Mechanical Black Pencils deliver smooth writing every time and never require sharpening (aka no need to waste precious minutes during a test).
When it comes to education, the name of the game is organization. Staying organized is easier when you use separate notebooks for each subject. The Hilroy 3-Subject Notebook comes in different colours and can help you do just that. It's no wonder why we've all been using these iconic bad boys for decades — they just work.
If you've got little ones, they can return to school this fall in style, armed with all of their gear in a handy knapsack. Bonus: the George Multi-Piece Backpack Set has a laptop sleeve and even comes with a water bottle and pencil case.
If you're struggling to get your kids excited about school again, this cute Thermos PAW Patrol Soft Lunch Kit just might be the nudge they need. It's bright, fun, and keeps food cool.
For the older ones, the Thermos Radiance Dual Compartment Lunch Kit is one serious lunch kit, with a top compartment and foam insulation that keeps cold food cold and hot food hot. Plus, when it's being tossed around in a backpack or locker, your kids won't have to worry about leaks.
