It might feel as though summer just started, but it’s not too soon to begin thinking about school supplies — especially if you want to save some cash and avoid the last-minute crowds in August. If you have a Sam’s Club membership, you can nab a jam-packed writing utensil pack for less than $10 right now.

For just $9.98, Sam’s Club members can pick up a 36-count pack that has practically all of the writing utensils your student might need. At the very least, they will be off to a great start.

With items from Papermate, Sharpie, Expo and Elmer’s, this kit has the good stuff, including various pens and pencils, markers, highlighters and glue sticks.

Sam's Club

Whether your kiddos are preparing to head back to the classroom or you are looking at more remote-learning at home, this supply pack would come in handy. You might even be able to divide it up between kids.

The pack is currently sold out on but it looks like it’s still available in certain stores, so take a look online to see if you can pick it up at your local warehouse store.

If you don’t belong to the membership-only retail warehouse clubs owned and operated by Walmart Inc., you can sign up to become a member in-store or online. Memberships start at $45 a year.

Sam’s Club isn’t the only spot for finding school supplies. Target has plenty of school essentials on offer, too, including Papermate goodies like this 16-pack of vibrantly colored felt-tip pens for $17.49.


With names like Raspberry Fizz and Blueberry Bubblegum, these pens will start the school year on a sweet note!

And if your little one needs a new carrying case for all these writing utensils, Target has you covered on that front, too. Check out these miniature backpacks for stashing pencils, markers and more.

Made by Yoobi and available in strawberry or animal prints, these mini backpacks are $5.99 at Target.


Are you thinking about back-to-school supplies yet?
