20 Nostalgic School Supplies And Dorm Room Décor We All Owned At Some Point
Let's go back to school.
From spiral notebooks to stackable crates, there's a certain nostalgic factor associated with school supplies and decorating your dorm room. So, let's get into it!
Composition notebooks were a must-have item.
Labeling the specific tabs on those plastic organizational folders was a shot of pure serotonin.
Fairy lights were in EVERY dorm room ever. Bonus points if they were multi-colored and stayed on 24/7.
Adding a seat cushion to the stark wooden chair the dorm gods bestowed upon you was a luxury, but also a necessity.
Some sort of cheesy wall art! This could include butterfly stickers, a cliche saying, or a wine-related joke.
Those odd cubes. We all had 'em. They stored random items and also offered additional seating for guests.
A cheap over the door mirror. Bonus points if it falls down again and again.
As many stackable drawers as possible. They hold snacks. They hold clothing. They hold random flyers you get at the union.
A whiteboard you put on your front door for everyone to write messages on.
Remember rolling backpacks? They made school feel like an adventure.
And no matter your age, JanSport backpacks always seemed to dominate the scene.
A Papasan chair AKA those circular chairs that just ends up holding clothes.
When you open up your notebook and write the date down on that first day of school, you obviously wanted to use a felt tip flair pen of course.
A pencil case was so important. The centerpiece of your school supplies, the compact design was available in a variety of colors.
Those stacking point pencils were just cool. Inventive and easy to misplace, these pencils always had the most fun designs.
A fun eraser pack changed the game when drawing, and the pink pearl ones were just the best.
Or those tiny pencil top erasers?
Those desk organizers that sit on your fake wood school-issued desk.
A shaggy run that you never vacuum and it sits on the dirty floor and collects dust
Maybe this is a bit specific, but Lisa Frank folders were all the rage — in college or not.
