It is now August, and that means the kids will be heading back to school soon. Are they ready with their school supplies and clothes? Alicia Richmond, Founder of Chic On a Shoestring, joined Nicea DeGering, to talk about how to get them ready, and how to help other kids at the same time.

Many parents are on the lookout for the school bag that is not only sturdy and stylish, but also has the compartments to help their student stay organized while they bring their papers and books to and from school every day.  

Backpacks come in all sizes, colors, fabrics, and shapes and help kids of all ages express their own personal sense of style.  When it comes to the schoolbag, backpacks are the way to go because they are designed to evenly distribute their load on your shoulders and hips, making them easy to carry for several hours. And, they are supported by your back and ab muscles.
