The Daily Dish Back to School

Calling All Moms! We Found the Cutest Kid's Backpacks…And They’re All on Sale!

Because back-to-school really just means it's time to buy them a new backpack.

By Courtney Thompson

For some it’s mid-August, but if you happen to be a mom, it’s back-to-school season. Prior to having kids, I was always irked by the big box retailers taunting me with fall ads for kid’s sneakers and binders. But now that I do have a little brood of my own—and I’m getting bombarded with PTA emails and school schedules—I realize that sadly, mid-August does equals back-to-school season. Which is a bummer because I love my loosey goosey summer schedule…but I’m also looking forward to putting those sweet, darling children of mine right back into the swing of school again in a few weeks. (Who’s with me? Anyone??)

As you start assessing what you need to get your kiddos ready for the upcoming semester, you’ll quickly ascertain that this sh*t adds up. New jeans, jackets, notepads and pens cost a pretty penny, as does the ultimate back-to-school product, the hallowed backpack. Maybe you buy your baby a new backpack every year or maybe last year’s is just totally demolished, but regardless, we’ve rounded up 15 super-cute options that boys and girls alike are going to love…and they are on sale. Meaning you’ll have a little extra to spend on soccer uniforms and those violin lessons you’ve been considering. Point being: You can still be mom of the year…but let’s do it on a budget, mmk?
