Question of the Week...
For those of you with school-aged children...
Do you buy your kids a new backpack each fall?
Each of my children seems to think that they need a new one this year. And I disagree.
I rounded up SIX backpacks around here last week. Jansport, Eastpack, and REI brands, ALL in perfect condition. I'm just not really cool with spending money on a new one for each of them when we have perfectly good ones they can use. And I'm really not okay with spending money on a cheap backpack that won't last more than one year. That's the reason I bought the above mentioned brands in the first place...they last forever!
So...do you buy a new one each year, or don't you? I'm really curious.
