Backpacks 75% off at Target

I noticed backpacks are finally 75% off at Target today. This is a great deal, especially if you pick up a Jansport backpack since they carry a lifetime warranty. I know of at least two people who had a minor problem (such as a zipper break or a rip in the bag), and the company made good on it by sending them a replacement that was as good or better than the original item. Even if you are set for school, think of using them for emergency preparedness--every family member should have his or her own 72-hour kit! Safely Gathered In has a great series right now on 72-hour kits. They are in week 7 or so of the series, but it's never too late to jump in and get started.

You know, I never thought of family members having their own backpacks for emergencies.

We live in Florida, need I say more. Wow, that is a grand idea.
