We all have a lot of stuff and college kids are no exception. New gadgets are out there tempting us to buy them when they first come out. Most of the stuff you need to store are rather small such as electronics and it all fits in one roomy backpack if you have a good one. Hence the importance of having a place with slots and pockets that house precious cargo so you can carry it wherever you go. If you put an item in the same place every day in the backpack, it will be easier to find and less likely to get lost. You want this backpack to do double duty as a carrying case for your laptop as you tote it around campus. It is nice to have everything in one place: computer, cell phone, keys, iPod, tablet, etc. It is easy to lay your computer down and forget it in the coffee shop or gym. If you have one tote bag—a backpack—you have less to think about.
I know how valuable it is to have a great backpack. I am talking about something attractive but sturdy that will last you through your busy college years. It shouldn’t be too heavy or too light. There are a lot of options so you can pick a size and shape that appeals to you and does its job of protective storage. Something that doesn’t show the dirt is a safe bet as well.
I remember the time when I couldn’t find my mobile phone no matter how hard I tried. I even attempted calling my number so I could listen for the ring, but no luck. Basically I was putting things at random in shirt and pants pockets. Sometimes I carried a makeshift lunch bag. I did have an old backpack, but the straps finally gave out. Instead of getting a new and better version, I made do with what I had: the clothes on my back. You need protection for your gear when you go away to college. It should be one of the first things you buy. I had put it off for too long being too lazy to do the groundwork to find just the right item.
A backpack for college is a super graduation gift for a high school grad so the college student won’t have to go through what I did losing things here and there. I also didn’t like the feeling of bulging pockets in any case. Plus, it didn’t look very nice. A backpack is chic for a man or a woman and a great accessory to your casual wardrobe. You can either chose to get a good carrying tote or you can get rid of some of your paraphernalia. You don’t have to take it all with you each and every day. I for one like to have all my devices on hand. You never know when I will be in the mood for a round of video games online.
