Backpacks on Sale this Memorial Day Weekend! - Deals on Girls and Boys Backpacks for Back to School

Quick Sale Picks

When the school year starts, kids need a backpack that will carry it all.  As darn cute as those little animal backpacks can be, their space is limited.   Even the youngest students need a roomy bag, as they’ll be carrying their lunches, water bottles, crafts and often an “emergency” change of clothes.  In addition to that, older kids lug binders, books, homework and day planners, even laptops.  Durability is a must.  Not only are backpacks heavy, but they need to withstand the impact of your kid launching it in your general direction as they run past you at dismissal.

We’ve found some of the best options on sale right now, thanks tothis Memorial Day Weekend!   So brew up some coffee, and check out some of the top picks – ranging anywhere from 10% – 20% off.  We’re in!
