School supplies are items and small equipment commonly used by a student (especially a student in primary and secondary education) in the course of their studies. This term may be used to include not only stationery, but such items as pocket calculators, display boards, compasses and protractors, lunchboxes, and the like.[1][2]

Retail dollar sales of back-to-school products from the office super stores grew 2 percent in August 2010 compared to August 2009, after July 2010 showed flat performance. The back-to-school season for school supplies had its best performance in the latter half of August, as many consumers waited until the last minute to purchase their supplies. [3]
