Sending your little superhero off to elementary school might be hard. But sending him off in style without breaking the bank, can be even harder. With a new character coming out every week it seems, keeping up with what is cool and what is not, has proved to be more challenging that most of us ever expected.
Who would have ever thought boys cared so much about having the “cool stuff”. It seems this day and age, fitting in can be ever harder than it was when we were kids. So to make back to school shopping a bit easier this year, I have come up with a list of the best backpacks for elementary school boys under $20
The first place on my list was Walmart. Of course they are known for their low prices and they also have a huge selection, plus they also have a great selection of other school supplies.
