    Do they still use lunchboxes today? Remember when you could buy one from your favorite television show? Those were cool, but I was too old to enjoy them.

    Another thing you can make that can save money for back to school are homeade book covers.All you need is paper grocery bags or any other kind of thick paper and some tape. Just cover the book with the paper and let the kids decorate them however they wish with markers and stickers. We did this when we were kids and it was always a fun craft project to make.
