In my bag

Have you ever seen those blog posts or magazine articles where women show you what’s in their purse? I was digging through my school bag yesterday, looking for something – I can’t even remember what I was looking for – and I started laughing. There is so much stuff in my bag! So I thought I’d do my own take on it, here’s what’s in my school bag.

I’ll start with the things that are actually supposed to be in my bag:

My laptop – I take my laptop to school with me everyday. We don’t get a ton of planning time, and we only have one computer at school, so I try to work on my own whenever possible, that way it is really easy to take computer work home with me.

My school planner: I don’t usually take this back and forth, but this weekend I had a ton of stuff to work on, it was easier just to bring it with me instead of making a separate list.

My own calendar: My calendar is a little bigger than your average planner. I keep all of my dates for school, all of my info for my blog and Teachers Pay Teachers store, personal appointments, and info for other projects in here. Basically, it’s my life. Maybe I’ll have to do a post on how it’s organized sometime.

OK, now here are the random items that I found in my bag:

A package of needles for my sewing machine: There really is a reason that these were in my school bag. I took my sewing machine to school to work on a project with my kids and these have been in my bag ever since (and when I say ever since, I mean since February…).

A play knife from a tea party set: something that would only end up in a Preschool Teacher’s school bag.

A really cute, yet completely empty pouch: In the summer I use this particular bag when we go camping, it’s waterproof, so it’s perfect. This drawstring pouch has been in my bag since labor day weekend, I guess because it doesn’t take up much space and I’m just to lazy to put it away.

I have a couple of different bags that I use for school. The last one was bugging me because it looked so grimy, I switched to this one because it was a rainy spring and it helps keep my stuff protected.  I really should’ve pulled the junk out of my other school bag to show you, I know there are some jingle bell bracelets from my zumba class in there…

I’d love to know what’s in your bag! Write a post and leave the link in the comments!
