I came across your article today and I would like to know if you personlly have used both versions, the cheap and Thirty One? I’ve been with the company 6 years now and have to say every penny I’ve spent has been worth it. I still have the first two Large a Utility Totes I bought 6 years ago and use them. Just because it’s cheaper that doesn’t mean it is better. Thirty Ones products actually hold up pretty well. I admit like any other company we do have some problems from time to time but they are good at helping customers fix these issues. You have a 90 day warrrenty and sometimes even after that they help. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/d3/4e/32/d34e32bd32f14cc5ee1d08d76d5869ff.jpg
While the Thirty One Gifts catalog shows beautiful traditional purses, they are only a small part of the impressive product catalog made available to lucky 31 Gifts party goers. From large totes that are ideal to bring along to the beach to small organizational pouches for home use, shoppers enjoy the selection of fabrics, embroidery customization options and matching accessories available for each product. With a color and pattern palette that greets each season with exciting new offerings and secret hostess-exclusive items, there’s a little something for everyone under the Thirty One Gifts umbrella.
I actually use this tote as a diaper bag, I have two children in diapers and it really works great for that. Aside from the way I use it, I think it's an over all great bag. A few issues: the elastic pockets on the sides seem to have lost their tension already, I don't put anything large or heavy in them to cause this, also the pocket in the back.. Wish it was larger, I don't really see the point of the zipper in the bottom of the pocket. The only other issue I have is the straps, wish they had some sort of padding on them, they tend to be a little hard on your hands if you're carrying anything heavy.
Thirty-One has invited its distribution center workers to relocate to Dallas and continue working at the 651,000-square-foot distribution center space it is leasing in Flower Mound, a suburb of Dallas. Distribution center workers who remain in Columbus will be eligible for a severance package and outplacement services, including onsite job fairs, Monroe said.

Aubrey – I have two 31 Utility Totes, two bags from Amazon and one from Walmart. The bags from Amazon are cheaper than 31 bags but are every bit as good in terms of quality. Further, the Walmart bag cost the least but, in my opinion, is the best bag. The only downside is there aren’t many fabric choices. Also, I had another 31 bag that I bought as a work bag, it was expensive and it fell apart. I do like the 31 bags (I think the fabric is pretty) but I would rather save money. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/77/e4/e6/77e4e6065aee3eeb45fe498dd19e14ad.jpg
Finding the perfect 31 Gifts product in a color or pattern that clashes with your style is a big letdown - but it’s a problem that never needs to happen when you view the 31 Gifts catalog. With several different prints available for each item, even your base selection will reflect your style preferences! From there, embroidered personalization adds initials, names or phrases, allowing you to pick even more options - thread color, font, symbols and more - to truly personalize your product. Thirty One Gifts’ collegiate line makes a wonderful gift or special self-indulgence for college sports fans, and even Fido can get in on the fun with beautiful leashes that match popular Thirty One Gifts patterns. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/aa/e1/26/aae12616d5499388a8bde7ffc6f81e65.jpg
My customers who are all over the country are so very important to me. I love that as we are picking out the best tote for their next vacation, what purse style is best, what gift they could give, or what organization item is best for their home that I get to have a relationship and get to know my customers. We talk about hard times, pray for each other, and laugh a lot too! Women need each other – life is hard – and having someone to say “you’re amazing” can go a very long way.” -Krista
