(Sometimes they require a minimum purchase, sometimes there are a limit of quantities).

Whether your child is entering kindergarten or college, you can find your school supplies at Staples. In addition, their weekly ads offer special back-to-school savings; you can find many of the essentials being offered at under $1 (although some do have limited quantities).

Old Navy/Gap
multiple locations, including
Westfield Culver City Mall
, 6000 Sepulveda Blvd., Culver City, CA 90230

Old Navy always has great sales on kids’s clothes and a greta selection of basic uniform staples. Of course you can shop online as well, but sometimes visiting the store is worth it, like when they have a special flash sale.

Westfield Culver City Mall

College Dorm Supplies

Some of you may be sending kids off to University this year, and they’ll need a whole extra set of things!

Target
multiple locations, including
8480 Beverly Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90048

It should probably go without saying that you can outfit a dorm room and beyond at Target, but take it from me personally: It’s true. I have the credit card receipts to prove it.

Bed Bath & Beyond
multiple locations, including

1557 Vine Street, Los Angeles, CA 90028

Bed Bath & Beyond has this amazing service: you buy the supplies your kid will need for their college dorm at any BBB store near you, and they will have everything shipped to the store that’s closest to the University your kid’s attending. How cool is that? They even keep lists of items that are not allowed at each college, so you can avoid buying things your kid won’t even be permitted to have in their room. Plus you know those famous coupons of theirs never expire, right? And you can use 6 of them at a time. Now you know.

The Container Store
multiple locations, including
710 Pacific Coast Highway, El Segundo, CA 90245

This store has made it their business to be the best at organization, especially for small spaces, so what could be better for a small dorm room? They’ve got it all figured out – and, like BBB above, they keep lists of permitted and not-permitted items (like Hot Plates) for each College.
