If your school requires IDs for getting lunch, checking out books and otherwise, you need a case that can be easily accessed and attached to your bag. This llama case is too cute and dependable. Hook it on an inside latch or from the zipper.
STATE makes Kane backpacks like this one that are as stylish as purses. If you’re going for a more athletic look, the Under Armour Undeniable backpack is great for the after-school sports transition, and it has a convenient zip top access for stashing your phone. Add a Grab and Go Wet/Dry bag for those used gym clothes (just make sure you find it before it sits for too long).
If you’ve still got some items on your list and are wondering where to buy cheap school supplies in one place, I recommend Walmart and Office Depot Office Max online stores, where you can also get Cash Back on every purchase when you shop with Ebates.
