Get together with other parents from your church or school and so a back to school exchange to find backpacks! I went to a church once where all of the ladies brought clothes they wanted to get rid of and we all shopped through and exchanged clothes! It was a fun afternoon, you can do the same things with back to school supplies!
Check with friends and family, too, they might have slightly used backpacks that they can give you or trade.
