It's that time again! We're getting back to school, so it's time to go shopping. I know, I'm cringing with you.

Now, I've already made a list of supplies you DON'T need to buy, but what about things you SHOULD get, but might not think of.

We're Talking Backpack Essentials

I'm the type of person who packs every single thing I can fit in my purse. I like to have everything with me at all times so I'm prepared for any scenario that may come my way. Our kids should be just as prepared when they head to school, don't you think?

School Preparedness

So here's what I think every kid should have in their backpack. Keep in mind, I'm not talking about the essentials, so much as the extras that really come in clutch. (Is "Clutch" still a thing?)

And don't worry, none of these items will blow your budget.

Here's the top 10.

11 Things Every Kid Should Have In Their Backpack

Here are some things you might not think of.

Honorable Mentions:

Here are a few other things that didn't make the list, that you might also want to add to the bag: band-aids, wet wipes, hairbrush, some sort of ID card with your contact information in case they get lost, and maybe even a comfort item.

Did I Miss Anything?

That's all I could think of for now, but feel free to send me suggestions; I'm an adult that carries a backpack to work everyday, so it's not just for the kids.

I hope this list has helped you prepare your kids(s) for the school year. TTFN!!
