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.

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/280x280_RS/d4/94/9e/d4949e2fdbf61571ac936548d0c61659.jpg

I just had a party with Monica Nickerson in West Allis, WI. She was the nicest, quickest to respond ...and most helpful women ever! She brought so many fun things to the show and was interested in what we needed. The show was perfect getting us ready for the holidays. I received the order and everything was beautiful! I’ll definitely be hosting again with Monica, she’s delightful and the products are amazing! See More https://i.pinimg.com/236x/76/70/31/767031b5a5466015b1f8819fa1393fc3---bags-thirty-one-gifts.jpg

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.
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/0b/bd/8f/0bbd8f99634207c0eae3f46b3a95b06c--younique-baby.jpg

If you’ve ever looked at a disorganized linen closet or cluttered countertop with a sigh, Thirty One Gifts is the answer to your prayers. Toss the boring plastic tubs aside and upgrade with some seriously stylish underbed bins, fabric catch-alls and market bags that will have your checkout lane neighbors peeking over in envy.

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
