To most kids, the idea of packing their school bag means shoving in as much stuff as possible to limit trips to lockers or mom’s car. Mastering the art of packing your school bag efficiently is a valuable skill. Whether you opt for school bags with wheels or prefer the classic backpack style, knowing how to organise and load your bag correctly can make a big difference. Let’s explore essential tips and tricks on how to pack your school bag effectively and correctly fit your chosen Totem bag, ensuring that you make the most of your chosen bag, along with insights into Totem's range of accessories designed to enhance your school experience.

How to Correctly Fit Your School Bag

It is crucial to ensure that your school bag is fitted correctly. Here's a step-by-step guide:

  • Placement: Place the bag close to your child's back.
  • Lower Back Padding: Position the lower back padding against the curve of your child's lower back.
  • Shoulder Straps: Hold the bag in position and adjust the shoulder straps for a snug but comfortable fit.
  • Buckle Feature: Tighten the slack on the buckle feature until the small webbing is taut.
  • Growth Buckle: Adjust the growth buckle at the lower end of the shoulder straps to ensure a secure and well-balanced fit.

Packing for perfect carrying

  1. Organise School Supplies: Organise your school supplies—group similar items together to keep everything neat and easily accessible.
  2. Weight Distribution: Distribute the weight evenly within your bag. Place heavier items closer to your back and lighter items towards the front.
  3. Utilise Compartments: If your bag has multiple compartments and pockets, utilise them wisely. This keeps your belongings organised and helps maintain better weight distribution.
  4. Consider Accessories: Totem offers a selection of accessories designed to enhance your school bag's functionality, such as pencil cases and lunch bags, water bottles and more. These can improve how your bad carries, as well as ensure accessibility
