Best Bargain | Old Navy Backpacks
Seriously, where else can you find roomy, comfortable, trendy backpacks for under $10? While the girls admittedly have more fun pattern options than the boys, these quick-drying canvas backpacks hold everything your kids need and more. Besides fitting all those school supplies in organizational pockets, the Old Navy backpacks even come with a pocket for an MP3 player and a convenient hole to pull ear buds through. And did we mention that it’s $7? It’s a simple, classic option that should be on every budget-conscious family’s back-to-school list.
