Many people believe that the 80’s was one of the best decades of all time. That is people who were born in the 80s and even those who were not. The 80’s is always remembered and cherished. So, why not incorporate some of the things from the 80s when shopping for your child’s school items. Below I will discuss some of the 80s school items that you may want to consider for your child.

Trapper Keeper


A Trapper Keeper, also known as a binder, is one of the essential items that every child is going to need for school. It was hip in the 80’s and you can bet that it is still hip now. Send your child to school in style with one of these binders.

Collared Shirts


Collared shirts were a big hit in the 80’s. Students made sure that before they left home for school they always had their collars popped on their shirts. Even though the 80’s have gone collared shirts are still in. So, make sure you stock up on some polo shirts for your child.

These are just two of the 80s school items that you are going to want to make sure that you have for your child this school year. For a full list of 80s school items check out Coupons.com.
