Walmart Makes Back to School as Easy as Clicking a Button |

You may have noticed store shelves filling up with binders, paper and lunch boxes. This year Walmart is loading up with new items for back to school and back to college. And to make the shopping process even easier, customers can place their order using Walmart’s Online Grocery Pickup and Pickup Today services. The retail giant offers their online search and shop tool allowing customers to find the actual school supplies list from over a million classrooms nationwide.

Walmart is also integrating Teachers Lists which helps people find school supply lists straight from the teachers.

The first weekend of August is Tax-Free Weekend for many states! Check to see if your state is offering tax-free shopping for school supplies this weekend. 

This way you are spending money on things the kids won’t need. The site is easy to use by simply putting in your zip code and finding your individual classroom list. You can even click the “Add All to Cart” button and instantly all the items will fill your basket. To date, there are close to half a million classroom lists available and close to a million lists expected by the end of August.

If you order online and then pick up in the store, a Walmart team member will do the shopping for you. This year the number of items customers can order has increased by the tens of thousands over last year. In some cases, you can even get same day pickup. Shopping in-store? You can find a “Back-to-School Helper” to assist you.

If you will be doing your shopping online and shipping your purchase directly to you, be sure to look for Walmart coupon codes to save even more money.

“This back-to-school season, we’re keeping the math problems simple – adding savings, subtracting time,” said Scott Bayles, vice president of stationery, Walmart U.S. “It’s always been our job to save our customers money and we aren’t changing – you can still find more than 300 items under $1 at Walmart this back-to-school season – but we’re doing more than that. We’re also saving our customers time with easy ways to shop and multiple ways to get these items to students, so everyone can ace their school shopping.” The store also sells over 600 items for under $2 and more than 1,000 items for under $3.
