Summer is winding down, and that means it's time to get kids ready for school. Although some kids may be enjoying the final weeks of summer, others are already back in class. . . or close to it. If summer snuck up on you, as it does with most families, then you might be scrambling to get everything your child needs to go back to school. Rather than fight the lines at the nearest store, why not snag some of the last-minute back to school items on Amazon Prime to get your child prepared for the first day.

School supplies don't come cheap. Nabbing one of everything on the list could set you back about $200 or more. But ordering everything online could save you money in addition to time. Plus, if you avoid the store, then your kid won't be able to raid the school supply aisle for the trendiest, priciest gear. With everything on this list ready to be delivered to your door in just a couple of days, online shopping just might be the way to go this year.
