Get the Best Backpack

Buy In Bulk
Shipping is always free when your order is over $60 on Swap.com. Knock out tons of items on your list at once and save the $5.99 shipping fee!

Set a Budget
Spending gets out of hand when you aren’t keeping track. Know the maximum amount you’d like to spend before you go shopping, it will make you more thoughtful about your shopping choices and will cause you to become more creative in order to fit your constraints.

Think Beyond School
Will your kid be wearing this next year? Sure, these clothes may be trendy, but are they durable? Think into the future, as well as how much use you’ll get out of the item. Also, back to school means back to sports, clubs, rehearsals and everything else. Don’t forget to factor extracurriculars into your shopping list.
