      14. TOMS Shoes: Teachers spend a lot of time on their feet, so why not be comfortable? TOMS Shoes offers an array of comfy shoe options to choose from with 10% off for teachers. And since every pair purchased is matched with a new pair for a child in need, you can feel good about treating yourself to some new footwear.

      15. Walmart: With everyday low prices on classroom staples such as pencils (you can never have too many!), paper towels (students can get messy!), and storage supplies (to help you stay organized!), Walmart is truly a one-stop shop. They even have supply lists by school and grade, taking the guesswork out of what you may or may not need for the upcoming year.
