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/fe/b5/fa/feb5fa362156f1adc9b69d8db1c91637.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/236x/73/81/50/738150b2ba34fdbaa578c19be9db2921---gifts-thirty-one-gifts.jpg

I needed something other than my purse to carry around the multitude of random things I needed in my capacity as on field mother to an entire team of 7-year-old tackle football players –pens, pencils, Bandaids, medical tape, extra mouthpieces, water bottles, towels, clipboards, rosters, ice packs, my camera, Skittles for bribing them to stop wrestling/crying/pouring Gatorade on their cleats on the sidelines. So many things.

To help in your quest to obtain the ultimate tote bag (or get your linen closet organized, or corral all of the crap rolling around in the back of your minivan, or make shopping at Aldi’s a piece of cake), I’ve rounded up some wonderful sellers (all come highly recommended from the DudeMom Facebook Community) to help connect you with a Thirty-One business to buy from.

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.

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. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/bb/e0/76/bbe0760717b51f5de678f2861a995f61.jpg

I noticed in the catalog that you could fit files in the zipper pouch (it was a lot bigger than the pencil pouch I was picturing), this made me rethink my current “office in a bag” for finances. I placed three files in the zipper pouch: “To File”, “To Handle”, and “Stamps and Envelopes”, then I placed my check book, my budget notebook and my extended budget (which is in a cardboard file) inside the pouch. I am so excited about this set up! It reduced weight and bulk and secures the files while letting them remain upright. It's a huge benefit to me to have all of our budgeting tools with me at all times. I can pay bills, track purchases and adjust the budget in little breaks throughout the day omitting the need for a set time, that I sit down and balance the budget. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/b7/2b/0b/b72b0b3f34c0f8109c10d393b684961f--chips-and-salsa-fiesta-shower.jpg
