While I love school supplies, shopping for school supplies with my kids is another story. I get so frustrated trying to keep track of which kid needs what supplies in which amount. To help keep you organized this year, I created a back to school checklist that you can fill out yourself and bring with you when you go school shopping!

Free Printable Back to School Checklist
I was originally going to make a list of all the different school supplies that your student may need for back to school, but I realized that every school and every student is different. Instead, I created a list where you can write down each of your children’s individual lists for yourself. Then check each item off as you purchase them.

You will need:
Begin by downloading the PDF to your hard drive to a folder where you will be able to easily find it again later. Then print the back to school checklist onto high-quality printer paper — one for each child. I like to use the best quality setting on my printer so that the PDF prints crisply.
Fill out the checklist (or have your student fill it out!) with all of the items that he or she will need for the upcoming school year. Keep the checklists safe in a binder or folder until all of the school shopping is done. Each time you purchase an item, check it off the list. Doesn’t that feel good!
