What are the back-to-school must-haves?

In today's high-tech classrooms, tablets and laptops have become just as important for students as pens and notebooks. The portable simplicity of a tablet is perfect for younger grade-school children, helping them keep pace and handle their schoolwork with ease. Meanwhile, many older kids appreciate the added power and versatility of a dedicated laptop. To cover all your bases, you can even combine the best of both worlds with a device like the shape-shifting ASUS VivoBook Flip.

When it comes to college students, back-to-school shopping takes on even greater importance. Moving into a dorm can be a stressful experience, but the right supplies can ease the transition. The top priorities include creating a list of dorm room furniture, kitchen essentials, and personal care items. Stocking up on necessities like laundry pods, hygiene products and other can’t-live-without items. If your school doesn’t already offer spaces for dorm life cooking, a new mini fridge, coffee machine, or microwave will help with on-the-go meals. A new television or smart video calling device for connecting with far away family can also go a long way toward keeping the blues away. Finally, don't forget to throw in a gift card or two to help cover any other unexpected needs.

What are the best back-to-school snacks?
