Back-to-School – Coolest 90s Style School Supplies

Can you smell it? First day of school is in the air. Last week, some students went back to school and this week the rest will be attending class. Also, let’s not forget you mom’s out there that took the summer off to be with your kids. You’re going back-to-work too. Pretty exciting eh?

A friend of mine posted a picture on Instagram of her daughter’s first day going into the second grade. She was wearing a cat dress and had a blue zebra striped bag (most likely from Justice). It got me thinking. What was cool when I was going to school in the 80s and 90s?

Off to Pinterest I go.

90s pencil collection

Recently, my parents sold their house in my hometown. While they were cleaning out the place, my mom gave me some pencils from my old pencil collection. Aren’t these cool? I actually brought a few of the silver sparkly ones to the office with me.

What school supplies do you remember the most from your childhood? Did you have any Lisa Frank supplies? What is the new in-thing for kids these days? Do they not care for Five Star binders anymore and all want iPads with wireless keyboards?

Talk to me.
