I just thought of something else I have that is pretty much not used any more.  Since I don't use a cell phone except for emergencies, I keep a small directory of phone numbers on my desk and a similar one in my purse.

Of course, I have all 5, and everything else mentioned by the respondents. So my question is, how many AARP members don't have at least one of these?

I also have all five and vinyl albums with a portable record player I requested last year for my birthday! My son thought I was nuts but bought it for me anyway!

I HAVE ALL FIVE. I ENJOY USING WALL CALANDERS. I USE FILE CABINETS, I MAKE COPIES OF RECEIPTS THAT FADE AND SAVE THEM FOR INSURANCE, WARRANTY ETC.  I AM NOT COMPUTOR SAVY ENOUGH TO MAKE FILES ON THE COMPUTOR. WHERE WE LIVE INTERNET SERVICE SUCKS. I DON'T HAVE THE PATIENCE TO SIT IN FRONT OF THE COMPUTOR AND WAIT. WE HAVE A LAND LINE. OUR CELL P[HONES ARE MAINLY USED FOR TALK AND TEXT.  I ENJOY WATCHING RECORDED MOVIES THAT I CAN POP INTO PLAYER ANYTIME.

I have quite a few DVD's and lots of CD's.   I still buy CD's.  I always have a calendar on the wall.  I do not have any file cabinets although I should.  Maybe I would file all the paper that is stacked on my desk and other tables in the house.

Absolutely! I still have (and use!):

 

CDs/DVDs (hundreds!)
Cassette tapes
Vinyl albums
Vinyl 45's
Turntable
VHS VCR and VHS tapes
Corded landline wall phone
File cabinet with files and folders
Take out menus for local restaurants
Photo albums full of pictures

 

We also have paper calendars, but not hung on the wall. I do use the calendar on my cell phone to record upcoming events because I can get reminders in advance.

8 tracks before cassettes which came before CD's. Remember them - and the car 8 track player - well. Vinyl records are making a mini comback....IF you have a turntable.
