Common Items That Have Become Obsolete

As the years go by technology changes, and things people used to use every day turn into relics of the past. Here a few common items that have started to disappear.


Growing up, kids everywhere would impatiently wait for the big holiday catalogs to come out so they could make their lists to send to Santa. Now, there is no need to wait for catalogs because you can easily find gift ideas on your phone or computer. Gone are the days of looking through the pages and circling what you want. Now you just tap a screen and everything is there.

Parking Meters

Paying for parking isn’t going away anytime soon, but the method is changing. You might see parking meters along city streets, however, they might not be functioning anymore. Most cities have switched to mobile apps for parking payments. They will typically have you put in the space number you’ve parked in and have you pay for a specific period of time. No more quarters in the meters.

College Textbooks

Colleges all over the world have transitioned from physical books to digital. Schools still have bookstores where you can purchase textbooks, but probably not for much longer. Getting rid of hard copies is much more convenient for students and staff. Having all of your books on your phone, tablet, or computer to work from means less strain on your back from backpacks full of materials. It also helps staff update books for the most current information.
