I have always been a sucker for a good
school office supply - gold paper clips, fancy clipboards. A few years ago I was talking with some friends and mentioned Pee-Chee folders. They had no idea what I was talking about. I couldn't believe it.
These were the folders that, at the time, were the cheapest ones at the store but sturdy - so you mom made you get them. We were usually allowed one extravagant folder (i.e., Lisa Frank with unicorns and/or pandas and/or rainbows, etc.) but as more and more folders were required we were sent to the Pee Chees. Once the other colors were introduced it was like a whole new world opened up - now I could color code my folders and always know what color I needed for a class.
Fast forward to present time - I was looking for a bottle opener and came across the online store Schoolhouse Electric Supply & Co. I was perusing some of the categories and lo and behold they had Pee Chee Pocket Portfolios - I almost fell out of my seat.
For $7.00 you can get a whole set of five Pee Chee folders! There are my old friends the football players and the track stars and inside there are still conversion and multiplication charts inside.
