Walmart, I find, is the best place to buy back to school for supplies. Or, look in the newspaper for coupons and ads from places like Staples, OfficeMax, and any other place you find! For backpacks I would go to Target or Walmart early so they have a good chance of getting something they like. Good luck in the hunt for supplies!
