Back to School: Backpacks and Totes

Welcome to the back to school series on the blog! I'll be covering a variety of topics this week to get you prepared for Fall! 

One of my favourite things to shop for during back to school season is a backpack/tote. Last year I pledged to use a backpack and I really liked it! My neck and shoulder did not hurt as much as when I used a tote and I could fully use both of my hands! I still love a good tote - I just try to limit their use to days when I don't have much to carry or a long day! 

I've gathered variety of backpacks and totes that will be perfect for back to school. There are different styles and I tried to cover many different price points to appeal to everyone! 

Do you carry a backpack or a tote? Which do you prefer? 


  1. Hey there!

    I've nominated you for the Bloggers with Class award! Check out my post, answer the questions and make a nomination of your own. Have a fantastic day :)

  2. I usually really dislike backpacks, because I feel like a tortoise, so I love using a tote! I have a longchamp that I use, and an LL Bean Boat & Tote (monogrammed!), but I totally feel you about the busier days and needing a backpack. I have a basic black Dakine that I use on those days, but I don't like it!
