Create Your Own Amazon School Supply List!

Did you know you can create a school supply list on Amazon??!!
This is a brilliant idea because SO many people order things from Amazon... so what's to stop them from adding a few things from your supply list to their order?!

4 easy steps to make an Amazon school supply list

First, head to Amazon and make sure you are logged in. When you hover over "Wish List" you'll see an option for "School Lists" at the bottom. Click it!

Amazon school supply list - Step 1


Next, click on "Start a new list."
You can come back to this screen later and click on "View/edit existing lists" to find your list and add more items to it.

Then, start adding things to your list! You can search for items, click on categories, and search by grade level suggestions. Just click on "Add to list" and it will get added to your supply list.

Last, when you are done adding items, click on "Publish & Share." (Don't worry, you can still add more items to your list even after you publish it.)


Click on "Share" to see ways that you can view and share your list - email, post a link, print, etc!

Amazon school supply list - Step 4


I'll be putting the link to my Amazon supply list in the back to school brochure [from my wonderful friend Katie of Simply Creative Teaching] that I'll be handing out at parent orientation. I'll also email it to my room mom so she can help out with getting some supplies/wish list items!!

Have fun with this!! It can't hurt to add something to your list. Lots of people order on Amazon, so it may be an easy way to get some things for your classroom! If you have any questions, just leave it in the comments and I'll do my best to answer them!!
