Yesterday, I had some extra time on my hands so I made a quick stop at REI. I had my eye on a Patagonia bag that I convinced myself I needed (of course) and luckily I found it! It was on sale from $79 to $52 for the REI 4th of July Sale going on until July 6.
The sale is amazing because you can get high quality things for great prices. I wasn't expecting to find a good sale when I walked in but when I saw the prices, I knew I had to buy the bag then. You can shop some of the sale online here but there are more items available in store. The bag I bought is currently not available on sale online but if you go into a sotre, I'm sure you will find one (if they're not sold out yet)!
When I got home, I was so stoked about the sale that I looked it up online. By chance, I came across the North Face backpack I had been looking at for school and it was on sale too! This one was $27 off which is amazing given the quality of the backpack. The colors of the backpacks were pretty limited (there were only 25 left in the color I wanted) but they still had a decent selection. You can shop this backpack here. The original color I had my eye on a while back (black and Rocket Red), seems to be nowhere to be found online. I bought the teal and blue backpack and I think I actually like that one even more.
Let me know if you check out this sale and what you find!
