Guess what? #TrapperKeeperIsBack just in time for #BackToSchool {#Giveaway ends 8/21}

I can remember, so clearly, when I was getting ready for back to school when I was a kid in the 80’s and 90’s. There was one thing that I HAD to have.. Trapper Keeper! Who can remember their Trapper Keeper’s from elementary, junior high and high school? I had two. One had a kitten on it, and the other had this horse on it.

When I was at Mom 2.0 this year in Atlanta, my heart skipped a beat when I saw that the Trapper Keeper was back!

About Trapper Keeper
Introduced in 1978, Trapper Keeper® remained a mainstay of students’ back-to-school shopping lists throughout the 1980s and into the early 1990s. In 2014 Mead® is introducing a brand new, full line of products with updated features and design elements, including:

  • Snap closure – Mead has updated the closure to a super sturdy snap, making it easier  (and more durable!) for students to keep their things stowed away.
  • Snapper TrapperTM – Standard on all new 2014 Trapper Keeper products, the new Snapper Trapper feature makes it easier than ever to snap supplies in and out of the binder without the hassle of opening the rings, saving busy students valuable time in between classes.

New product options in 2014 include:

  • Binder
  • Folders
  • Notebooks
  • Dividers
  • Student Planners

Color options available (most commonly requested on school lists): o Red, blue, green and purple

  • Customize it, Organize it, Trap it!®
    • Customize It!
      Decorative and functional customization allows students to modify the product to fit their unique organizational and personal styles.
    • Organize It!
      The cohesive platform works together as a system of tools that quickly and
      easily help students get and stay organized.
    • Trap It!
      Snapper Trapper, secure closures, and Trapper Keeper pockets ensure contents
      stay in place, while allowing for quick and easy access.

The new Trapper Keeper system is a great way to help you teach your kids about color coding and the importance of organization, while allowing the student to customize their system in a way that works best for them.

When I received my Trapper Keeper, memories started flowing… so many happy memories. It’s weird how a ‘binder’ can bring back so many memories from my school days, but it did. They look the same as they did when I was a kid, they feel the same and they act the same as they did back then; they’ve just been updated for the new age.

The snaps have changed, for the better!

The student planner is fantastic! I have been using mine for my own use since I’m not in school. Actually, the Trapper Keeper makes a great Blogging Planner as well!
