Surprise your tweens with these affordable school supplies that are also super cool.
Over the years, I’ve realized that as homeschoolers, we don’t need to purchase a bunch of new school supplies each year, but it’s always fun to head back to school with some new tools.
So instead of spending money on the basic supplies traditional students have to purchase, I have the freedom to invest in some unique things I know my kids will love.

Affordable School Supplies
These back to school tools are not only cost-effective, they’re super cool, so your tweens will love using them as they start a new school year.
Clips with Personality
Who doesn’t love gel pens? With their smooth-flowing ink and vibrant colors, your teen won’t mind doing their writing.
Plus, they’re useful in art projects, notebooking, journaling, and more.
In our house, we use Ticonderoga pencils for most of our schoolwork, but as the mom of a Black Belt, I couldn’t resist these ninja pencils. Super cute!
Do your kids collect erasers? Mine do. They have for years. So I’m always on the lookout for something unique to add to their collection.
Fun Sticky Notes
Staple in Style
My kids are emoji obsessed. They even have emoji contests with friends on their iPods. So I knew they would want these emoji stickers.
They’ll probably put them all over the cool personalized notebooks they made!
This year, step out of the school supply box. Instead of buying the standard supplies, see if you can mix it up and add in a little fun too.
