Fresh off the Fourth, we’re switching out of “vacation mode” and tapping right back into the real world. And top of mind? Back to school shopping. Believe it or not, we’re just a month or so out from the kiddos heading back to school—likely in-person for most this year—and we can almost guarantee yours are also in desperate need of new school supplies. That’s where Target’s unreal school supplies sale comes in.

Going on now, Target’s school supplies sale is — and we hardly ever say this about a school sale — actually incredible. So incredible, supplies start at just 25 cents, with many marked down up to more than 50 percent off. And the sales includes virtually everything the kids will need this upcoming school year, including  24-count crayons (25 cents), colored pencils (99 cents), and folders (starting at 50 cents).

Target’s school supplies sale won’t last long, so make sure to shop it now— because these prices likely won’t be this low again leading up to the first day of classes.

Take a look at the best school supplies deals ahead, and shop the entire sale here. Don’t miss out on all the other cute back-to-school items at Target—like adorable backpacks starting at $20 and other cute school essentials.
