Although to most kids, especially tweens and teens, backpacks for school are a style statement and need to be a reflection of their own personal style there are other considerations that parents need to keep in mind while shopping for backpacks for school to make sure that the one that is eventually chosen is as well suited to its purpose as it is good looking.
Another thing parents should never do when it comes to purchasing backpacks for school is pay full price if they really don’t have to, especially during the back to school season. Here are a few tips for finding a durable, fashionable backpack for school for less:
Shop the Sales – Big stores like Target and WalMart tend to offer some very deep discounts on school supplies of all kinds in the month or so leading up to back to school time. However, after the kids are back in school those discounts often deepen even further – sometimes up to 75% off the original price. If your child can manage with that old backpack for school for a week or so before you buy them a new one you could save a significant amount of money on a really good one, including some of the top backpack brands.
