02 August 2021


Browse the range of back to school supplies at B&M to find cheap lunch boxes, school bags, pencil cases, stationery and more in time for the new academic year.

Start looking for your back to school supplies early in order to:

  • Snap Up the Best School Essentials
  • Make Time for Multiple Trips
  • Achieve Peace of Mind
  • Make Sure Your Household is Well-Prepared

It’s never too early to look for back to school supplies. Here, the team at B&M explain why you might want to get started on your shopping for the new academic year sooner rather than later. 

We’ll also let you know where to get school supplies for the best possible prices.

Snap Up the Best School Essentials

If your kids have very specific tastes, it might take a while to find pencil cases and lunch bags to reflect this! That might mean looking for a while before the right items turn up.

Alternatively, the more popular your youngsters’ favourite characters or shows, the more likely it is that school supplies from those particular brands will be in short supply close to the start of term.

You can find school bags, exercise books and other items featuring Harry Potter, Disney and Marvel characters, or from franchises like Fortnite, for very low prices at B&M.

B&M Top Tip: Picking up gel pens, coloured pencils, notepads and crafting equipment early will mean that your kids can start using them before school starts, presenting more options for fun rainy-day activities throughout the last few weeks of summer.

Make Time for Multiple Trips

It can be stressful when the first day of term is looming and you’ve not been able to find everything you need in the one shopping trip you had planned. Looking earlier means you’ll have time to search in different places at different times. 

This means that if anything has been forgotten or is hard to find, there will be plenty of future opportunities to hunt down the perfect pencil case or backpack, or to snap up a last-minute pack of scrunchies.

Achieve Peace of Mind

Picking up your back to school supplies well in advance means there will be much less of a rush as you head into the final days of the summer holiday. 

Relieve stress by stocking up on pens, school diaries and anything else you need as soon as possible, then sit back and relax, happy in the knowledge that everything is under control.

Make Sure Your Household is Well-Prepared

It’s important that your youngsters are prepared for any eventuality, with school bags, PE kits, water bottles, stationery, and notebooks ready to go when you need them. 

Getting organised early means that you can take your time to go through checklists and store items in a sensible way so that you - or your kids - know exactly where to find everything.

B&M Top Tip: Hand gel and wipes are vital in these times, so be sure that you make time to pick these up, too.

For a calm, organised start to the new term, make sure you start shopping for back to school supplies as soon as possible.
