Backpacks for Christmas

I know many people like to give to Angel Tree, Compassion International, or local abuse shelters, etc. around the holidays. Many times these organizations ask people to pack a backpack full of school supplies, toys and toiletries for the kids in their specific field of ministry. (Our old church in Texas takes a bunch of filled backpacks down to the school kids in Mexico every year.)

We bought these at The Children's Place yesterday for $6.99 each. Markdowns on back-to-school items are rampant! And I really like the backpacks at TCP because they are well padded, roomy, and come in some dern fun styles. Who can beat $6.99???

Also if you're looking for an alternative to Christmas wrapping paper this year (like I am), think backpacks, laptop cases, messenger bags. The Children's Place had them all. For cheap.
