WFMW - Backpacks

After spending $20+ on character backpacks for my kids each year and then having them still fall apart mid-late school year, I finally found a solution.

I had an LL Bean backpack when I was in high school. I still have it, so when my son's backpack fell apart last year, I gave him mine instead of going out and buying him another one in April. That thing is still in great shape, even after the abuse it gets from my son!

I purchased one this year for my daughter for only $27.95. They come in several different sizes for different ages of kids, and many come with matching lunch boxes.

LLBean works for me!
