A must have school supply – a quality backpack

 

school-supplies

It’s back to school shopping time. Parents across the country are making lists and checking them twice to make sur their child has everything they need for the start of the new school year.

School supply lists have changed A LOT since I went to school. Back in the day we needed a binder, paper, pencils, pens and erasers. That was pretty much it. Anything else was a bonus. Nowadays kids are required to have pens in certain colors, special pencils, super expensive calculators, numerous folders and notebooks, as well as supplies for the classroom.

We always take advantage and stock up on school supplies when they are on sale year round. That way when we have to go school shopping we have almost everything we need and we can avoid the crowds and long lines. The only things we need to pick up are those specific extras teachers might require.

The cost of school supplies really add up, so it’s important to take advantage of sales and special.

There is on thing we learned NOT to skimp on and that’s backpacks. We learned that lesson the hard way over the years.

We used to buy our kids whatever character backpack they wanted from “bargain” type stores (I won’t mention brand names, but I’m sure most readers know what stores I am referring to). We would buy the kids $10 – $15 backpacks. We thought we were saving money but in the long run it ended up costing us MORE money because we always had to replace the backpacks a month or two after school started.

When it comes to backpacks it’s well worth it to spend a little more to get a quality backpack that will last the entire school year.

I recommend Jansport backpacks. My kids have used that brand’s backpacks many times over the years. They have plenty of great colors and designs to choose from.

My son has an Adidas backpack from eBags. I made extra certain to give it a good “once over” to see how well it’s made. I even tugged on the straps to see how well they are sewn on. It is a quality backpack.

The backpack suits his needs. It’s very room and can handle the super heavy and huge text books he’s bringing home.

There is also room for his laptop, but he doesn’t bring it to school with him.

Our daughter has a zebra print backpack from eBags. I don’t have a photo of it because she leaves it in her car (she goes to college). Every time I ask her for a photo she keeps forgetting to snap one for me. Ugh!

Her backpack looks just like this one.

I like that eBags has such a huge assortment of colors, designs, sizes, brands and prices available to suit everyone’s needs.

I’ve even found a lunch bag for work that I wan to pick up the next time I get paid. I love the design and that it’s insulated.
