5 Classic School Supplies You’ll Remember If You’re From Colorado
Back-to-school season is here and I am shocked at how different school supplies are compared to when I was in school.
Looking at kids' school supplies means that I am:
- A). I am out of touch.
- B). It is very obvious that I don't have children.
- C). All of the above.
My answer is definitely C.
I used to carry my lunch in a brown paper sack and now kids have bento box lunchboxes.
I am jealous. I'm buying one immediately.
KIDS' SCHOOL SUPPLIES ARE COOL NOW, BUT OURS WERE COOL TOO
I wanted to take a trip down memory lane. I asked on Facebook what school supplies were the most trendy when you were a kid. I was immediately transported back to my childhood.
After reading the comments I am longing for my pee-chee folder and remembering the time I threw a rubber band ball at a jerk during recess.

Betty and Shirley said Pee-Chee Folders Too
I remember the calendar inside and drawing all over it. Many people on Facebook were saying that Pee-Chee's have been discontinued. I found some that you can buy.
THE MAJORITY OF COLORADO WAS NOSTALGIC ABOUT ONE SCHOOL SUPPLY - TRAPPER KEEPERS

I call the 64-pack of Crayolas with the sharpener the big daddy of them all.
KIDS MIGHT ASK - WHO IS LISA FRANK?
These folders might have been the first school supply to go viral. There totally would have been a Lisa Frank TikTok dance.
