Did anyone have these in the '80s? I think my parents got theirs in the late '70s but we used it throughout the '80s and even the '90s.

For some who aren't sure what a rolodex is, it's like an address book that flips back in pages like a binder, but it's upright.

Here's what the newer ones look like:

  Yes, Rollodex the precursor to Palm..?

  Never had one of these in the house, that I can remember.  I think we used a small plastic recipie box and index cards, or some-such...

  Then, there was always the fridge door...

I never had one of those until the 90's, at work.  Then I moved on to a Franklin Covey Planner.  It's great when I utilize it.  Now my important phone numbers are saved in my cell, and I couldn't tell you what the actual phone numbers are. :D

We never had one (we always used a recipe card box)...but my grandpap had one in his office.
