Whether you are looking for a cute backpack for your little girl this school year or a fun lunch bag for your growing boy, consider shopping online before attempting to face the crowds in the stores this August! I was out and about the other day and heard a mom talking to her son while scrolling her smartphone, "well, looks like your backpack will be arriving on Wednesday!" Listening to that conversation made me realize, that wow, I am old! When I was a kid, we would head out to the store at the end of summer, trying to beat the crowds, hoping to find a decent book bag still on the shelves! My, how things have changed!
So before you head to the stores consider online shopping.
