Whether your kids are going to class in person or attending virtually via their laptop, having the right tech will make it easier to head back to school this year. Fortunately, back to school sales offer some good discounts, offering some great deals on everything you need to get kids back to the classroom, no matter your child's age or needs. These day laptops are a must for learning — particularly as kids get older — but right now you can pick up high quality, budget-friendly laptops for little as $370, and Chromebooks for as little a $250. 

And there's nothing to say you can't do a little shopping for you home office, too. Deals on headphones — including noise-cancelling models to help you tune out the rest of the household while you work — make this a great time to upgrade your videoconferencing setup.

If you're ready to do some back to school shopping, these are the best sales we've seen this year.
