I am probably jinxing myself by even daring to admit this, but I haven't sorted my kids' back to school supplies yet. The uniforms and school shoes are pretty much sorted but we've yet to pick up new lunch boxes or school bags. I've been putting it off because I can think of better things to shop for, frankly, but also I can't stand the thought of dragging my kids around the shops only to find that there's nothing left. So I'm pretty relieved to hear that Home Bargains has a bunch of backpacks on offer right now for just £2.99.
Granted, these won't appeal to every kid preparing to return to school - my 9 year old is way to cool for these - but Minnie Mouse fans will love this backpack (down from £6.99 to £2.99) and matching lunchbox, also £2.99, down from £5.99.
Spidey fans will also dig this cute Spiderman backpack, reduced from £6.99 to £2.99, and there's also an Ultimate Spiderman Lunch Bag Set, (now £4.99 instead of £8.99) consisting of a lunch bag, water bottle and sandwich box.
And for Mickey Mouse fans, check this backpack out. Perfect for starting nursery or reception.
Delivery from Home Bargains varies depending on the size of your parcel, and is priced at 50p, £3.49 or £7.99 to UK mainland addresses.
Alternatively, you can use their collect in store service which is free of charge.
