Has anyone bough bookbags there? I need to get my DD a small one for school on Monday and I have no money to buy a expensive one.

Go ahead and buy one! The worst that happens is it falls apart and you have to buy another later when you do have money :)

Just an idea here:

Contact the school to see if they have any assistance programs for parents that can not afford school supplies. Many school district web sites have information about assistance.

I would go ahead and get one from there if you have to, but to be honest, Wal-Mart may be a better place to look. Family Dollar and Dollar General Stores aren't any better priced than Wal-mart. My kids go through so many book bags in a year, I now have specific things I look for when purchasing them. This past school year, they all only went through one bag each instead of three each! With four kids, that is a lot! I spent about $20 on each bag and it was well worth it! But for a small child, it really doesn't matter. They don't have as much wear and tear on them, no heavy books, etc.
