My reasons to love backpacks can be summarized in one adjective: multi-functional. There is so much you can put and carry in a backpack. I have always been the backpack kind of girl because I feel that I am going on an adventure every time I wear my backpack. I do like shoulder bags but if I have to choose between the two, backpacks will run away with the win. Here are the specific reasons to love backpacks over shoulder bags:
1. Travel Buddy
Backpacking, light travel, spontaneous trip? The backpack is your ultimate adventure buddy. You can carry it everywhere you want to go. Most backpacks are heavy duty ones so you don’t need to be extra careful with them. One of the reasons to love backpacks is that it allows you to pack just every essential you need for that trip you are sure to enjoy! Make sure though that your backpack does not turn into a garbage bag. How to do that? You can categorize your stuff according to use and put them in smaller, color-coded bags (e.g. blue for cosmetics, red for school supplies, or yellow for books) so it is easier for you to pick up the smaller bag whenever you need whichever thing.
