Get a Headstart on Back to School Shopping

The summer has been flying by. It is the beginning of August but school will be starting before you know it. Instead of running around trying to get everything ready at the last minute, I want plenty of time to get the best deals on school essentials…and non-essentials. 🙂 Thankfully Heartland America has a variety of items that you can check off your back to school list. I have put together some great ideas for back to school, especially if your children are headed off to college.

Start out getting back to school the right way with a great computer or laptop.

Hewlett Packard by Compaq Desktop Computer, Asus Detachable 2-in-1 Laptop, Hewlett Packard ProBook Notebook, Lenovo Desktop Computer

With 250GB of hard drive space, DVD burner, and fantastic graphics and sound, this HP desktop computer can handle all your family’s photos, music, and files, not to mention tackle homework with ease.

The Asus laptop can also transform into a tablet so whatever your student needs always on hand. With a HD multi-touch display and quad core processor this powerful little laptop is ready for campus.

If your student’s only computer is going to be a laptop, then the HP ProBook Notebook is a perfect choice. This laptop has a 14″ display, 250GB hard drive, WiFi, and Windows 10 so it’s set to compete for the top of the class.

Another great desktop option is the Lenovo desktop computer. This desktop is a great home computer with a 17″ LCD monitor, 160GB SATA hard drive, and Core 2 Duo processor.


Everyone needs some gadgets to fuel productivity and fun.

Back to School - Gadgets
Kodak Wireless Inkjet Printer, Coby 4GB USB Digital Voice Recorder, JamSonic Wireless Headphones, ION Audio Vinyl Motion Portable Turntable, 8in Bluetooth Portable Speaker System

So your student will need a good printer for all those papers coming up this year. The Kodak Wireless Inkjet Printer prints quality pages fast, up to 20 pages per minute. It also has a scanner for crystal clear copies, and because it’s wireless it can even print files directly from your smartphone.

If your student has a teacher too fast for notes, get a Coby Digital Voice Recorder. It can capture 270 hours of audio so your student can record all their class lectures and make sure they have everything they need to ace every test.

Music helps studying, but blaring favorite tunes at 3 am is not a good idea in a dorm room. If your student needs music for a late night study session consider Wireless Headphones from JamSonic. With it’s 100 foot range, your student listen their music library on there computer while studying down the hall.

If you’ve got a hipster heading off to school, an Ion Vinyl Portable Turntable will let them chill out old school style.

For those after test celebrations, your student can bring the music to the party with a Bluetooth Portable Speaker System. Because everyone needs to rock out after cram sessions are over.


Compact desks keep everything in order and comfy chairs make working on those papers much more comfortable.


Back to School - Office Furniture
Mid-Back Office Chair with Massage, Freely Folding Computer Desk, Commodore II Oversize Leather Chair, Stanton Computer Desk

Your student will thank you for this Mid-Back Office Chair with Massage after studying at their desk for hours. The massage feature has 3 vibration motors with independent massage zones and intensity adjustment. You might just want to “borrow” this chair when your student goes back to school. 😉

Space is always at a premium, especially at college. The Freely Folding Computer Desk sets up quickly and folds up so you can stow it away when you don’t need it.

If you need a stylish and comfortable chair for your home office even your kiddos will enjoy feeling like a boss in the Commodore II Oversize Leather Chair. It has an adjustable seat height so any member of the family can enjoy the chair and heavy duty chrome base with dual wheel casters for wheeling around the office.

For a compact, modern computer desk look to the Stanton Computer Desk. It has a pull-out keyboard shelf for more comfortable typing and a bottom storage shelf to hold your computer tower or printer.


With these options, you will have back to school shopping well in hand. There are even more options for back to school at Heartland America. Remember quantities are limited so get these great products while they last at great prices.

Next week you will be in for an adorable DIY because summer fun isn’t over yet. Also remember you are always welcome at Home with Heartland.
