It’s that time again! Back to School is quickly approaching and although yes, that means Summer is coming to an end, it also means back to routines and schedules and structure. Something my kids and I need! I’ve been sharing a lot of back to school picks on my LTK over the past few weeks. In addition to that I have rounded up tons of back to school must haves from backpacks, lunchboxes, clothes and more to help you get everything you need for your kiddos.
Consider this your ultimate back to school shopping guide! Last year I shared lots of back to school picks, many that are available this year too.
Because this is a shopping guide, I’ve kept the words to the minimum. If you see something you like in a graphic, underneath you can click through the images to be taken to the product. I hope you find my ultimate back to school shopping guide very helpful!

Whether your boy likes jeans or joggers or both, I’ve got lots of great back to school outfit ideas for boys that will please you both.
Old Navy has always been one of my favorite places to shop for kids clothes. They’re affordable and for boys, the jeans hold up really well.
You can find affordable school supplies and clothes at Walmart! So many great markdowns to help make back to school shopping a little easier on your budget.
Abercrombie Kids is a great option for back to school shopping. I really like their jeans and joggers for my son who is almost 14.
Another go to for me with clothes for my son is Finish Line and J Crew Factory. They’re both great on quality.

SCHOOL UNIFORM ESSENTIALS
If your children wear school uniforms here are a few school uniform essentials to get them started. From what I’ve found when my kids did have to wear uniforms to school was to buy as much as you can now. Go up a size if needed because around the Spring, restocking isn’t as easy.
Athleta girl has some really good school uniform options especially if she’s active at school.
I’ve created a school uniform capsule wardrobe for girls. Technically all school uniforms are a capsule wardrobe because it’s mixing and matching, but you get my point 🙂
I’m not leaving out the boys for school uniforms! Here’s a few great picks from Old Navy.

BACK TO SCHOOL MUST HAVES
Here you’ll find lots of functional and stylish bookbag options. As well as pencil cases and lunch box essentials.
Whether your child wears school uniforms or not, a bookbag is a great way to show their personality and stand out from the crowd.
A good lunchbox is a must to carry them through the school year. The one on the bottom left I actually have so that I can take my lunch to work. It’s small enough to fit into a lunchbag.
Below you’ll see I’ve linked a lot of bookbag options for older kids, tweens and teens who are into Nike, Adidas and North Face.
I hope you found this ultimate back to school guide super helpful! Like I mentioned before, I’m sharing even more over on my LTK. It’s a tough time with inflation, bills, regular life stuff and on top of that getting your children ready for back to school.
