If you’re a teacher heading back to the classroom in the fall, Amazon Prime Day is a good opportunity to stock up on essential school supplies and digital life upgrades (like a new iPad) at a discounted price.

Amazon Prime Day runs through July 13 this year, but you’ll also find competing sales at Target, Best Buy Walmart, and more that may go even longer. Below, we’re highlighting the best discounts on teacher supplies this year in real-time, from deals on construction paper and EXPO markers to storage bins and Purell hand sanitizers to make you feel fully prepped for the upcoming school year.
