Really Good Stuff's Files-and-All Teacher Caddy Review and Giveaway

For as long as I can remember, there are two things I have always wanted: a veranda and a roll top desk. Just ask my mom. Now, the veranda isn't important to this post, but the roll top desk has a connection, I promise. The reason I wanted a roll top desk is because of all the nifty, cute compartments to organize and store anything and everything.

So, when Really Good Stuff asked if I would like to review the Files-and-All Teacher Caddy, I had visions of roll top desks in my head. The caddy has similar nifty, cute compartments to organize and can carry everything in my sub bag of tricks.


The pockets on the outside are perfect for a water bottle, pens and pencils, sticky notes, and other notes (like the positive behavior notes seen in the photo). And there is even a zippered pocket on one end for other little items. I put in my decorative punches that I use for classroom management, but it would be perfect for any other small items.

The inside of the Files-and-All Teacher Caddy has a wire frame that can be inserted and will hold hanging files. Teachers can use it to tote home the never-ending grading and planning materials. And subs can put lesson plans, forms, extra activities, and even read-aloud books in the files.


The size of the bag is perfect... not too big and not too small. When I loaded it up, it fit everything I needed, and did not weigh too much. The handles are a good length that you carry on your shoulder or in your hand and it won't drag the ground (and I am short).

The metal frame allows the bag to hold its shape and stand up. It attaches with Velcro straps on the inside to keep it from moving around. I will give one word of warning: be sure to center the weight inside the bag, or it will fall over when you set it down. But it even has little black feet, so the bag doesn't just sit on its bottom and get all dirty.

The blue and green color is fun and bright and would work for either a male or a female. However, that is the only color choice. It would be nice it there were a few more choices. The only other downside I can see is that the outside compartments do not have any sort of closure, so things could fall out. However, I tried it out for several days and did not have anything fall out, so I really don't think that is too big of a downside.

The greatest thing is that Really Good Stuff is providing a Files-and-All Teacher Caddy for one lucky Sub Hub reader!

    Your blog is great! You represent a segment of the teaching population that is so often ignored. Thank you for being a professional substitute teacher!!! I just used your emergency sub plans "If you give a Mouse a cookie" My sub thanked me for the great day and most importantly, the students LOVED the day. Thank you!!

    1. Thank you so much, Kathy. I love to hear that my work is useful to others. It is exactly the reason I started the blog and wrote the plans. Glad your kiddos loved them too. :-)
