Best School Supply Deals at Amazon (with a dozen new items, updated as of 8/17/17)

School Supply Season is starting to wind down!  Here's a list of the best deals that Amazon has to offer, as of today, 8/17/17.

Can you do better than Amazon on the cost of school supplies at Staples and Office Depot?  On some items, absolutely, but you need to wait for the sale and get in the car.  For some of you busy Moms & Dads, the trade-off between the time spent loading your kids in the car, going through the store circular, matching it up to your list, cruising up and down the aisles looking for the sale items (and hoping they are still in stock), added to the cost of gas is just not worth it if you can pick up most of what you need sitting in your sweats in front of your laptop in your air-conditioned living room.  The advantage of time and convenience over money is completely a personal choice.

The majority of the deals that I have researched here are the very best that Amazon has to offer. 

Many of items listed here are Amazon Add-On items, which means that the item ships free with a $25 minimum order (and the cost of the item counts towards that $25).  You can order a bunch of Amazon Add-On items together (or multiples of the same one) to get to your $25 minimum and score that free shipping easily.

Zeagoo Lace Maxi Mermaid Skirt for $28 on Amazon




I actually ordered this skirt in both black and navy and I can personally attest to it's gorgeousness! Definitely order one size up from your regular size if you don't want it to be too form-fitting on top at the tush.  Unlike the pictures on Amazon, in the skirts that I received, the lining does go all the way to the bottom, so no part of this skirt is just see-through lace.  Also, my skirts have both elastic waistbands and side zipper openings. They are from China, but they don't seem to be cheaply made.  Really pleased with my purchase!
