    Okay I know I already asked about Vera Bradley for teacher bags and got lots of responses saying that they loved their 31 totes. I started looking at them and wondered if you have one, which one? Tell me if you use it for a teacher bag as well!

    Thanks!

    I use the Organizing Utility Tote DAILY (as a teacher bag). I also often use the Storage Utility Tote at least weekly (as a teacher bag). I also bring my Large Utility Tote on days I have to haul a bunch of stuff. I bring it back and forth a lot around Christmas and the end of the year.

    I use the Cindy tote as my daily teacher bag. It's a dark denim and I love it. It has a few pockets inside (including a small one that zips) and the whole thing zips closed but I usually use it unzipped.

    I bought a shoulder strap for it but I've never attached it.

    I like that it's durable and stylish and also doesn't show dirt.

    I like lots of their prints but my style is "plainer" so the denim works well for me.

    I have the organizing utility tote. I like it fine, but it's not really one of my favorites. I put a file box in mine to hang file folders. It's nice when I have a lot of papers to take home, but it's really bigger than I like for everyday use.

    I was trying to decide between the utility tote and the Cindy tote. Thanks for the advice!

    Does the Cindy tote stand up by itself? I don't want something that collapses, but that holds its shape.

    That organizing utility bag looks cool.

    The utility tote won't stand up without the file box in it.

    It doesn't stand, but it doesn't fall like canvas. It holds its shape fairly well.
