$5 find at Rite Aid

Are you still looking for a backpack for your child for back to school? Hurry to Rite Aid! They have an assortment of cute backpacks in styles that will appease both boys and girls. Prices are already a good deal, ranging from $10-20 per backpack. Right now, they are on sale for 50% off. That's $5-10 for a decent backpack that should easily last the entire school year. The one in the photograph was only $5 on sale. Others had a simple design, or were solid in color. Different ones had different kinds of compartments, so you can easily find one that will fit your needs.

These backpacks are made by Trailmaker. Last year, I purchased two in a Buy One Get One Free sale. They have taken turns hauling a heavy laptop, Chromebook, Kindles, clothing, and more. One has even traveled via plane from New York to Seattle. They have both taken a beating and are still in decent shape. It's just necessary for teachers to even get something new for a new school year.

The featured backpack was found at the Rite Aid on the corner of Bay and Culver on the city's east side. The sale is happening at all Rite Aids.
