Teacher Work Bags


As a teacher, I have a lot of bags, bags of bags if you will. However, most aren't functional.  Most don't have a shape and everything ends up at the bottom.  I use different bags for different days; it just depends on what I need to cart to and from school.  There is one bag however that is my favorite bag.  I call it  my planning bag.  It is from Thirty-One.  It is their Organizing Utility Tote..  I love it because it holds a lot of stuff including my file crate, glasses, stapler, binder clips, and post-its.  I also keep advil, hand-sanitizer and lotion in one of the pockets.  The side pocket carries my pencil case with all my pens/sharpies.  This bag has 7 pockets- amazing and roomy. If you are interested in one of these bags just click a picture. to take you to my Thirty-One website.  I became a consultant because I LOVE these bags.  They make great student teacher gifts and they can be personalized.

I'd love to know what my readers use for their teacher work bag.


I'm adding a few links to desktop file organizers that would work in these bags.  Mine is the Oxford Decoflex. Amason, Office Depot, Kmart and Walmart all carry them.

  2. I use the same exact bag, but I'm not quite as organized inside! Glasses, keys, flash drives, post-its - these are in my pockets. Where did you get the hanging file rack to fit the bag?

    1. I use yet another 31 bag, the Cindy tote, for my day-to-day school bag. I see they have it in cuter fabrics now, but mine is just the plain dark denim. Of course, I added a splash of color with a fantastic, floral 31 scarf! LOVE Thirty-One products! Flash drives and Post-its in my pockets, too. :)

  3. Sorry not to respond earlier, my family took me to San Francisco for my birthday. Kerry, thanks for answering about it being the Organizing Utility Tote. I got the file crate at an office store, might have been Office Depot. I know Target carries something similar in a wire mesh.

    I have the Cindy tote in grey, as well- LOVE it, it is my "professional" one that I carry to my meetings and when I don't need my organizing utility tote. I also have the large utility toe in the black parisian pop print

    1. Glad to help! I'm a Thirty-One consultant too!

      I LOVE my Large Utility Totes for toting around all my kids stuff. With three kids there is always a ton of stuff! I use one for carrying all of their backpacks, lunch boxes and nap mats in and out of school, plus another Large Utility Tote for transporting project materials back and forth from home.

      Oh and the Cinch Sac is great for field trips. Throw emergency cards, first aid kit, and any other necessities in there and away we go!

      Can you tell I love my Thirty-One bags? Lol

  15. I just came across your blog while searching for a bag for my soon to be teacher wife. I just ordered the bag pictured for her as her Christmas gift. She is a very organized person and will love this for her final semester of Grad school. I would love to tell her to visit your blog because I know she will love it, but I'll have to wait till after Christmas. I don't want to give away the gift. Thanks for your creativity.

  18. Hi Tiffani, I just stumbled across this post today, fingers crossed you'll see this. I would love to order one of these bags as I'm just going through school now to become a teacher, but I live in Ontario, Canada! Do you know if it's possible for things to be ordered from Thirty-One by Canadians?

    Thanks a bunch! Hope you've enjoyed your summer
