If you are looking for back-to-school gear like backpacks and lunchboxes, the best way to save is to buy quality sets with coupons and discounts. I like to spend a little more to on my gear and then have my kids use them for a few years. Some of the lower quality sets tend to rip, break or have zipper problems mid-year and then you will end up replacing them before the year is over or replacing them yearly.
If you use your coupons, you can find durable backpacks and gear with coupons at Land’s End, Pottery Barn Kids, eBags, Garnet Hill, LL Bean and more. Also, many stores are shipping backpacks to your doorstep for free. Instead of spending precious time and gas, stopping at store after store, order your backpack online and take advantage of free shipping offers.
If your boys prefer a solid print, check out this ultra-durable backpack from Land’s End. It is a stunning blue color with a pop of orange and has a reinforced bottom to withstand boys that tend to be rough on their gear. Check out the sternum strap that helps to provide extra support and comfort, especially if your boys tend to carry heavy items.
I am a HUGE fan of Land’s End back packs and they hold up so well that my oldest daughter carried the same Land’s End backpack for 4 years! You can add monograms for an extra special touch.
My tween is probably going to get this Print Dash Backpack for middle school this year. I love that on the Land’s End website you can see the backpacks modeled.
