Ah, “Back to School.” The phrase that made us shudder as kids has a much more fun ring to it when you’re in college. The freedom of decorating your own dorm room (or off-campus apartment), stocking up on all of your fave foodie finds, grabbing new swag to show your school spirit, and, of course, the actual essentials like bedding, shower caddies and sandals, laptops, chargers, textbooks and so on.
To help you out, we’ve rounded up the sites offering the best deals with deep discounts. So get to it—happy shopping!
