Back-to-school shopping is upon us, and even if you can’t decide what planner to get, at least Nordstrom Rack’s sale on State Bags might narrow down the backpack search. There are a few classic canvas and neoprene numbers and two (surprisingly subtle) Star Wars backpacks, too. And if you’re not heading to school in the next few weeks, a well-constructed adult backpack on deep discount — up to 78 percent off — never hurt anyone.
