My Thoughts

 Every year, sometime around spring break, my kids wind up breaking and/or losing their school bags. This time of year, the selections are minimal in my local stores, so I was lucky to learn about Yak Pak and their trendy bag designs. My teenage daughter really needed a new bag to get her through the rest of the school year. She picked out the skull print bag she loved all the bright colors and the trendy theme.

This particular bag is a little smaller than most school bags, but for her it was the perfect size. The lockers at her junior high school are really small so she can't fit larger bags in there along with her coat and books. The Yak Pak was just the right size to fit inside the tight space, yet it's large enough for her to carry around all her necessities. On the outside is an extra zippered pouch perfect for cell phones or lunch money. It's very well made with sturdy zippers and seams. I know we'll get lots of use from this backpack and she'll most likely use it as a beach bag once the school year is over.  



The Giveaway 

One lucky winner is going to receive their choice of item from Yak Pak from those listed on this page. This giveaway will end on  5/7/14  at 12:00am EST. Open to the US only. The winner will be notified via email and will have 48 hours to reply. Thanks again to Yak Pak for offering this fantastic prize.
