Shop the Best Back to School Supplies

Starting a new school year means new friends, new things to learn and, most importantly, great new gadgets. Abt's back to school supplies are curated with busy high schoolers and college students in mind who are balancing studying and a social life. Reliable tech has become increasingly important for students, which is why investing in a laptop is a great choice. Our selection of laptops includes familiar faces like Microsoft and Apple so you can choose something that can handle creative projects, writing papers or surfing the web for research. Your laptop should keep you organized and productive; if you have lots of projects to save, make sure you purchase a device with lots of storage. Those studying the visual arts should prioritize a high-resolution screen with a great graphics card.

If you're looking for a device that's simpler to use or carry, opt for a tablet. Tablets are great to take to class because they're incredibly portable; you can download PDFs of class readings and use apps to highlight or take notes right on your screen instead of having to print everything out. They're also a great entertainment companion; download your favorite streaming apps or mobile games and give yourself a break after a long day of classes, clubs and practice. The perfect companion for your device is a great pair of headphones. Whether you need to listen to something for class or want to turn on your studying playlist in the library, headphones are a must-have for just about every student. Walking around campus or hitting the gym makes these audio devices an absolute essential.

The Best Backpacks and School Bags

Having the right backpack is important whether you're in high school or college. It should be able to hold your textbooks, notebooks, laptop or whatever else you need for your classes. Available in a variety of sizes, styles and colors, you can easily make a fashion statement with your bag. Abt's back to school supplies include some of the best brands so you'll be able to find something sturdy that will last the whole school year. If you prefer to take notes electronically, look for options with designated compartments for a laptop or tablet. Others are designed with weather resistance, which is perfect for walking around campus on a rainy autumn day.

Study Break Must-Haves

School isn't all about homework and studying; you also need time to relax and recharge after finishing an essay or exam. Luckily, we offer tons of back to school supplies to upgrade your chill time. Plan the perfect hangout in your dorm with a mini fridge and a high-quality smart TV to stream Netflix. Mini fridges are perfect to keep your favorite snacks and drinks handy so you don't have to make trips to the store multiple times. They can also keep healthy foods handy, which is especially important for busy college students who don't always have time to cook. Getting ready with friends on a Friday? Blast your favorite playlist on a new portable Bluetooth speaker; with their wireless design, you'll be able to take the party anywhere. If you're the kind of student who needs background noise to focus, these speakers are perfect for that, too: just turn on your studying playlist or favorite podcast and set your speaker on the other side of the room. If you have any questions about these products or need help finding back to school supplies for your student, reach out to our experts at 800-860-3577 or visit them at our Glenview, IL store.
