Week 7 Clutter-Free Classroom Project

This week is all about your teacher bag. As you can see I have a "31" bag. The Clutter-Free Classroom site said to show your bag and tell the things that you like about it and the things you might want to change. I love my bag! It has lots of pockets- one I use for pens, pencils, highlighters, clips, school keys, and many many other things. I put my pens and pencils in zip lock bags so they don't bleed or mark up my bag.
This is the bag that I use!

This is the other one that I got.
Both of my bags together!
The contents of my bag.....Oh My!!
Closer look....

 There is only one thing that I would change about my bag- I would add a zipper pocket or pouch inside. This would help with the things that might fall out of the pockets- flash drives. 

What teacher bag do you use? What do you like about it? Can't wait to find out what is in store next....


  1. I love your bag...I've got the same one! I agree at least one of our pockets should be able to be securely closed. Other than that I love "our" bag!

  2. This is a very popular teacher bag. I have one too. I like the suggestion that one pocket should be secure. I always worry about small stuff falling out.
    Hopefully your papers are organized now!

    1. Yep, the papers are all organized. I had it really looking nice and neat and then remembered I needed to take pictures of the things in the bag....I agree that they are very popular....Happy organizing!

  3. Having pcckets inside the bag is a must for me! Instead of ziplocs I use a makeup bag from Vera Bradley for pens and markers (designed for brushes and pencils) because the ink won't bleed through. Sometimes I keep my zip drive in it too, so I just have to find the bag within the bag when I need something. Those Thirty-One bags are adorable though!

    1. I love the suggestion and I think I will look around for a zipper bag. I'm sure I have one that I'm not using. Thank you and happy organizing!

  4. I completely agree with the fact that the 31 needs an inside pocket or at the very least a pocket that closes on the outside.

    1. I did like what a poster said about using a zippered pouch. You never know they might change things up and add one.

  5. I just purchased 2 of the 31 bags! One I will use for school and one for house use only. My old laptop bag just died, so hoping this 31 bag will hold up for a while!! Excited about it! Thank you for sharing your lovely bags with us!

  6. Do you use both of them at the same time? I would completely agree about the zipper!
