30 Things A 90s Teenager Could/Couldn’t Live Without

If you’re a regular follower of my blog you’ll know that I’ve been sharing weekly and monthly extracts from my teenage diaries. As I was typing up this month’s teenage diary I came across a couple of lists that had been stapled in there that absolutely cracked me up and I thought you’d like to see them too. God only knows what inspired me to write them, I can only think I got the idea from a magazine (I was a bit magazine obsessed!), but clearly I felt the need to jot it down and put the world to rights in my own small 90s teenager way. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did.

So here follows my list of the 30 things I couldn’t live without and the 30 things I could live without when I was the grand old age of 14… please don’t judge me πŸ˜‰

30 Things I Couldn’t Live Without (DON’T LOOK X-RATED)

  1. Take That
  2. Friends
  3. Doughnuts
  4. Stereos
  5. Baked beans on toast
