Many kids will be heading back to school in the next few weeks, which means you’ve probably got school supplies, lunches and new clothes on the brain. The mad dash to get your little one prepared for a new school year can be a whirlwind, but it’s all so worth it when they have everything they need to succeed in the classroom.

While your child’s school will likely provide a comprehensive list of just how many notebooks, index cards and binders are necessary for the school year, there are a few other essentials you should pick up as well. A new backpack? Yes! A healthy supply of socks for school days, sports practices and everything in between? Yes, to those as well!

If you want to watch your spending while still scoring items that will last from September to June, then start with the five back-to-school buys below. They’re all quality purchases that won’t set you back more than $35.
