Now that you've cleaned out your teacher bag, let's look at some ways to keep it organized.
Love! Love! Love expanding files.
Super love that you can get them in fun colors at the Target Dollar Spot.
They are fabulous for housing papers that need correcting.
I also have one in my bag that I use for plans and papers that need copying. That way I can easily stop by the copy room on my way in or out of the building.
This is marketed as a portable art center for kids, but how great would it be for organizing your teacher bag. It would make correcting so much more fun!
I love ziploc bags. I use them for everything. They are handy to have in your bag to house like items so that you can pull them out and find what you need easily. If your bag is a portable office (i.e. you access it while waiting for your daughter to get out of dance class or while you are in the waiting room at the dentist) you may want to use a ziploc to house things like tape, stickers, small stapler, etc.
If you've bought an expensive bag then you may want to keep your pens and markers in a ziploc bag so that they don't accidentally explode and ruin your lovely bag.
If you are like me, you travel to and from school with a bunch of techy gizmos. I typically bring my laptop, camera, ipod, flash drive, and sometimes charging cables. This handy gadget helps keep all of your electronics organized.
