Back to school with the basics from Thirty-One
Back to school whether it be elementary or on up through college you still need some of the same basics. A few of those are a backpack or Cinch Sac and a thermal lunch bag. I know my kids don't always like what is on the menu for the school lunch so they do take theirs through out the year some. And I can remember when I was in college taking a lunch sack with me when I had classes close together during lunch time and knew I didn't have time to run home for lunch. Now days there are so many different backpack options to choose from and some kids actually prefer a Cinch Sac instead of a traditional backpack for going between classes. My daughter uses her Cinch Sac to tote her boots and winter gear to school for recess to keep it separate from her school books in he regular backpack.
You can find some really stylish options for a Cinch Sac and thermal lunch bag right on the Thirty-One website. And you can get them in coordinating colors like the set in my photo above. I like them because they are well made and I know that part way through the school year I won't have to replace them like many they offer during back to school shopping sales. Been there and done that, I'd rather invest in Thirty-One products that I know from years of experience using them that they are made to last. Plus they have really fun patterns to choose from and you can even get personalization if you like. My daughter's been bugging about getting her name on some stuff lately so I'm thinking it will make for great Christmas gifts for her!
If you're one that likes to break away from them norm (like me) then a tote bag might be your "backpack" of choice so to speak. I know I didn't like taking a big bulky backpack with me to some of my college classes because I knew the room was crowded and really for just one book I didn't need it. Instead I opted for a tote bag like this stylish Wander Tote from Thirty-One. I love the message on the front that says "Follow Your Own Path" and how fitting is that for a college student!? It has interior pockets that are perfect for your phone, keys, pencils and other small stuff. And it has a large top zipper so you can keep your contents private if you hang the tote on your chair.
