Just because you’re not in school anymore doesn’t mean you’re banned from back-to-school shopping. If you want a new fall wardrobe, you can get a new fall wardrobe (unless you’re broke like me, then you can’t). And if you want new office supplies for the unofficial new year (which unofficially begins in September after summer ends and life consistently gets shittier as temperatures drop), you can go out to the office store and fucking buy it.
Stores like Paper Source are store dedicated to those of us who want new shit for the school year even though we aren’t in school. These places are basically playgrounds for adults who once loved school supplies. But while 2016’s collection of notebooks, calendars, planners, pens, etc are literally all made to be Instagrammed on a clean desk and therefore are fabulous, there’s something about ’90s school supplies that really gets us going.
Here are 19 vintage school supplies items you didn’t know you could still buy online. *Nostalgia overload ahead*
