My Teacher Bag Revealed..and a tip on a SALE!


Truly Scary.

You are lucky the picture didn't include any spilled coffee droplets.  Yes, really.

I'm linking up with The Clutter Free Classroom's "Let's See Your Teacher Bag" Linky Party

Great bag, terribly organized. 

Here's something special:
My class had a half hour of clean up time on Friday because I just couldn't take it anymore...and lo and behold...I found one of my CDs.  This album's pretty special.  I met Josh for the first time during his tour of this album. So, glad I found it {even though, of course, it's in my iTunes account}.

Those pencils?  Well, when cleaning out my pencil drawer, I realized I had enough Easter pencils for my whole class.  I just need to come up with some way to "gift" it to them.  I'll work on that tomorrow at least before Easter.

My favorite item in my bag:

I've spent a large part of the weekend finding great apps for it.  Any suggestions?

Maybe I should use them. 

Does this look better?

Let's see how long it lasts.  I give it until Wednesday.

OK~ If you made it this far, here's your tip. 

Are you dying to try the Erin Condren life planners?  After seeing so many bloggers rave about them and how they help with organization, I thought, "I'll look into it."  Well, I did...and guess what?  They are having a major sale on the 2012 life planners.  I guess it finally pays to be a procrastinator!  If you bundle the planner and a pack of gift save 40%!  Done.

Head on over and order yours now.  Do you have tomorrow off like me?  If so, what are your plans?  I {technically} have Tuesday off, too. I'm heading to a math in-service about incorporating the Common Core standards.  I am really excited about it, too.  Maybe I'll use my free time tomorrow to make some freebies!  Maybe.


  1. I love 31! It is just so cute! :)

    Oh and I was started to wonder where you were at!

  2. I have a 31 teacher bag too! Mine looks very similar to yours, I would post pictures but mine didn't even make it home with me this weekend :-)

  3. Thanks for showing us your bag! I've been debating getting the style of bag you have. I have the huge utility tote and it's too big! :)

  4. Love the bag, and I'm very jealous of the ipod! I have an Erin Condren life planner, which somehow wasn't in the picture of my bag. I love it, and its helping me stay a bit more organized than I was in 2011...when I remember to take it out and write things down or check my to do list!

  5. Love that you have a Thirty-One bag. I became addicted years ago and began selling as a hobby a couple of years ago. No teacher should go without an organizing utility tote (at least one!). I love your ideas!

  6. Love your pictures and the arrows! Favorite apps - I have so many! What type of apps are you wanting? I have a planner that I love (pocket informant) or Stack the States and Stack the Countries is great. Story Lines. iClue... Google Earth, dropbox. Ummmm... there are so many LOL!

  7. Have fun on your days off - I am back to work this week after having a week off for Winter Break - we are on a 160 day calendar, so we have that extra break. Love your bag, as I just purchased myself a 31 utility tote! As for iPod apps - search on Pinterest, I have seen many things pinned. I have not snatched them, as I do not have an iPod Touch. GL finding some great apps!!
