Amazon is already prepping for the return of in-person and remote learning with a sweeping 30% off school supply sale. Everything you or your child will need to start the new year strong from brands like PaperMate, Sharpie, X-ACTO, and more starts at under $5. Our top pick today is a set of 12 InkJoy Black Pens at $4.76. Shipping is free for Prime members or on orders over $25. Usually running for around $7 on Amazon, this marks the lowest price we’ve tracked in years. A classroom staple for decades, PaperMate’s pens are smooth, simple, and comfy to use. I have a set of the InkJoy gels sitting on my desk, and I’ve used them throughout my college experience without any complaints. They’re perfect for notetaking or doodling, and at the rate I lose or misplace mine, an extra set is always a good idea to keep in the trusty backpack.
