School Supplies


It’s that time of year again. The pencils are getting sharpened, the notebooks are being bought in every color imaginable, and school is beginning once again. It can be hard to stay on top of everything, and Porter’s Office Products is here to help. When it comes to being prepared for the school year with all the necessary supplies there are many ways to accomplish that.


Make a List of Everything You Need

Making a list will ensure that you purchase what is needed and not simply what you might want. Make it as detailed as you desire; creating a plan will help make the process smoother and more enjoyable for all. Paired with this is the importance of trying to budget and plan accordingly. At we can help you find exactly what you are looking for, and even create a personalized favorites list for everything your child needs.


Involve the Kids

Involving the kids helps them to see what is needed for school and how it will directly help them. This is a great way to get the returning students excited for school and ready to learn. Help them pick out supplies in their favorite color, determine if you could help donate to a back-to-school fund for other children in need, or assist in packing their backpack the night before.



Take involving the kids one step further- help them personalize their items. Whether it is stickers, labels, or their own hand-drawn designs, help them make the items their own.


Designate a School Supplies Area

Find a space that works for you and keep all school supplies in one centralized location. This helps relieve the stress of not knowing where to find items and makes everything organized and easy to access.


Finding a one-stop store for your school needs can be a definite priority at this time of year. Our store showcases all the needed school supplies for a worry-free school year. From pens and highlighters to notebooks and planners, we have it all. What we do not house in our immediate store can be ordered through our catalog and shipped overnight for next day delivery.
