Putting your child to school: stationery items that are most profitable to buy at Target

Back-to-school season can be stressful for both children and adults, especially in 2021, when many students are preparing to return to full-time education for the first time in more than a year. But parents can reduce this stress by buying school supplies now. Target is a great store to find everything you need. Edition Deal news has compiled a list of products that are most profitable to buy at Target.

Folders are a necessary school subject for many schoolchildren, especially younger ones. You can usually choose between plastic or paper folders and these are some of the most affordable school supplies you will find. This is good news for seasoned shoppers, as kids often need at least one folder for each item, and at Target, you can expect at least a few options to cost less than $ 1 each. In fact, if you shop under your own Target Up & Up label, you can expect to pay as little as 55 cents per folder.

Obviously, the most affordable options would be simple folders of the same color, such as blue, red, green, yellow, and black. However, if you want items that speak to your child's personality, they are also available! The folders are nicely designed and cost only $ 1,59 each.

Filling paper

This is another compulsory school subject. You can buy paper from a variety of brands online, including Five Star, but Target Up & Up's own brand is a more affordable option. You can find 100 sheets of paper for as little as $ 2,99 per ream, which is 3 cents per sheet. And since the sheets come in many different types, adjustable, you are sure to find exactly what you need. The paper can be used for both regular folders and binders:

  • 1-inch binder for only 99 cents each;
  • 1,5 inches for $ 3,89;
  • 2-inch for $ 4,39;
  • 3-inch for $ 8,99;
  • Binders 4 "for $ 12,49.

Regardless of age, most students use pencil cases. The retailer offers tons of online options starting at $ 2,99. If you buy this item from a store, you may have a more limited choice. A basic Five Star pencil case will set you back as little as $ 5 or so, and will last for several years. But if your kids want something that enhances their individuality a little more, other types of pencil cases are also available. And these pencil cases usually only cost a dollar or two more than the standard Five Star, so they won't cost you much more.

Writing instruments and accessories

Even if you bought a box of 100 pencils or pens last school year, chances are you will need more now, especially if your family tends to lose those items. Fortunately, Target will provide you with all kinds of writing instruments you can imagine.

Buy pencils for just $ 1,19 for a box of 24. It will cost 5 cents per pencil. Need a sharpener for them? Target has them for only 49 cents. And if you prefer mechanical pencils, they start at $ 1,89.

A pack of 10 Bic Xtra Life pens will set you back about $ 1,89, which is about 19 cents per pen. However, you can save money by purchasing larger packaging. For example, a pack of 20 blue Paper Mate pens costs only $ 2,69, which equals 13 cents per pen.


The glue is unlikely to be useful for older students, but if you're shopping for younger kids, you can take advantage of the Target's Up & Up brand to get ultra-affordable staples. A 4-ounce bottle of school glue costs just 85 cents, while a pack of two Disappearing Purple sticks costs just 99 cents. Do you want famous brands? Then you should expect to pay a little more, but not much. For example, a 4-ounce bottle of Elmer school glue costs 99 cents, but a pack of two Elmer glue sticks costs only $ 1,19.

Target also has a number of other types of glue. You can find clear glue, metallic colors, or even glowing slime kits.

Planners and calendars

Yes, many of us keep all our assignments and appointments on our phones, but some people actually prefer paper. Or maybe they prefer a combination of paper and technology. Either way, Target brings you wall calendars, planners, and table calendars. Buy spiral bound planners for as little as $ 7,99, but be sure to check out the description. Some are academic while others are just standard year planners, so you should make sure to buy the one you want.

If you're looking for more traditional calendars, the wall and desktop versions start at $ 6.


As children head back to school, there is a good chance that many will need new backpacks. Target simplifies the backpack buying process by offering age-based categories, such as for toddlers, kindergartens, elementary, high school, high school, and college. However, if this seems too complicated for you, you can also shop on a budget, with categories under $ 25 and $ 50. Target has these categories too, including for items such as sheer backpacks, laptop backpacks, and messenger bags.


In addition to a new backpack, your kids will likely need new lunchboxes. Shop by style like classic style, double compartments, bento bags and boxes. Or shop for designs including solid colors, prints and patterns, characters and sports teams. Plus, you can buy low-cost options for under $ 10.

Markers, crayons and colored pencils

Crayons, crayons, and markers are another type of supplies that older children probably won't need, but younger children will almost certainly need them in the new school year. When you buy tokens at Target, you can of course choose Crayola - prices start at $ 2,39 for a box of 10 counters, but the retailer offers other brands as well. If you don't need a personalized brand, you can find a box of 10 pencils for as little as $ 2.

A box of 24 Crayola crayons will only cost you about $ 1,39, although if you are not satisfied with the brands, you can pay $ 1,25 for the same amount. And if you want colored pencils, a 12-pack Crayola will set you back about $ 1,89 and Target's Up & Up for $ 1,49 for the same number of pencils.

Hand sanitizer

Even in the best years, baby product lists often include items like hand soap and sanitizer. $ 1,99 Foam Hand Soap, Liquid Hand Soap can be as low as 75 cents.

Hand sanitizer will cost just 79 cents a bottle.

Masks for face

While mask requirements are being dropped in many places, this does not mean that we no longer need masks. They reduce the spread of flu and colds and even reduce allergy attacks associated with things like pollen.

In addition, not everyone has yet had the opportunity to be vaccinated, and many young children are still not eligible for vaccination. Better safe than sorry, you can buy 2 packs of face masks at Target for as little as $ 4.

Target offers many discounts to all shoppers, but seasoned retail aficionados know how to save even more.
