I have this bag and I love it.

I use a Thirty One lunchbox that I've had for years. It's held up great, but it's probably about time for a new one.

I use this bag from Thirty One, to be honest, I purchased it on eBay as it was cheaper when you factor in shipping

I use a 30 oz Yeti bottle with a straw lid every day and for a lunchbox I rotate through a few depending on my lunch for the day.

Love these bags. I may or may not have 5 so I can rotate colors. The oldest is 5 or 6 years old with minimal wear.

I go to the Thrift store and buy big totes all the time. I probably change bags 1-3X a school year. None are perfect but all are good enough. I like change too much to spend much money but my favorite thrift store sells big totes for $3-5 each.

They can be leather, cloth, or heavy vinyl (all preferred over the PU leather...) and fit a few essential items and then file folders. I don't generally carry my laptop back and forth, but often use it to haul stuff from home or the car into my room.

I don't use a lunch box or water bottle, but if I did, I would use this:

The good thing about it is that there are Pioneer Woman food containers to match that fit very well.

They no longer carry the pattern I have, but I have a Vera Bradley Get Carried Away Tote: https://www.verabradley.com/us/produ...24332-24332P30

I got mine when I first started teaching in my current city, which was 8 years ago now. The handles are a little worn but otherwise it still looks really good, and I haven't been careful with it. I like that I can carry any books, my computer, my regular purse, my lunchbox, etc. all in that one big rather than having to worry about multiple things. I also like that you can wash it in the washing machine. I will say- I don't recall it being anywhere near that price 8 years ago!

I switch between a thirty-one bag I got from Teacher's Aide (associated with our local food bank) and a Vera Bradley tote.

I donít carry much home, so I donít need huge bags. The backpack is mostly for field trips or when I have to take things home over extended breaks. The Thirty-One tote is good for workshops of other places where I need a back that will stand up on its own when it is sitting next to my chair.

Usually I carry the other two since I typically have keys and a planner.

I carry a Vera Bradley cooler for my lunchbox. It holds breakfast and lunch. I donít carry a water bottle to work. I have an Ozark Trail tumbler.

Vera Bradley Backpack

I bought a large Vera Bradley backpack at an outlet store this past summer to use as my teacher bag. I LOVE it! It holds everything I need (even has a padded pocket for my MacBook). It has two drink holders and it is MUCH better for my back than a tote bag. I highly recommend!
