Here’s everything a ’90s girl had to have for back to school

Preparing to go back to elementary school was a big freaking deal. You were seeing people you haven’t seen all summer long which was an entire two months at least (so basically forever). If you were popular you wanted to make sure you kept that status. If you weren’t you were trying to figure out ways to come back cooler. Back To School signs gave everyone both excitement and anxiety but usually the weeks of anticipation leading up to it all was more exciting than we’d ever divulge to our parents.

But if there was one thing we knew for sure, cool school supplies made us more awesome. So these were the must-haves we absolutely NEEDED.
