UPDATED with a WINNER! Congratulations Madison, check your inbox.
I don't know about you, but I am doing the last minute scramble to get the kids everything they need to go back to school before September 3. My shopping list includes 3 backpacks, 3 pair of running shoes, shorts and t-shirts for PE class, Soffe shorts and compression shorts for my cheerleader, sports bras and hoodies! YIKES!! It's a good thing we have a Dick's Sporting Goods store close by. I know I can get everything on my list in the brands and color combinations my kids love but at prices that my budget can handle.
With three kids who all have different backpack needs, Dick's Sporting Goods Backpack Selector is a wonderful tool to help us make sure each of the kids gets the backpack that will best suit their needs and their space issues, too. My two high school aged kids have sports right after school so they need a backpack with compartments so they can take uniforms or practice gear in addition to their books, where as my youngest daughter is going into middle school and the lockers are very narrow. The Backpack Selector is definitely going to come in handy!
And of course, two of my three kids have outgrown their tennis shoes from last year – the holes in the toe of the shoe is a big tip off. Dick's has a huge selection of athletic shoes in every price range! My son will need a performance running shoe and since his foot is done growing, I don't mind paying the price for quality. My 11 year old is still growing like a weed and I doubt that the shoes I buy her today will still fit by Christmas, so I am happy that Dick's Sporting Goods has basic shoes on clearance, too!
While I could go on and on about my back to school shopping needs, let's get to the good stuff!
