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/1e/59/e2/1e59e27942f59bf615b80a1a02f73ded--outfit-shop-initials-inc.jpg
I’m completely in love with mine! I haven’t given birth yet (4 more weeks!), so I’m not an expert on diaper bags but it seems like it would work better than the gerber diaper bag that I bought. The only think that the actual diaper bag has on it is the insulated section to keep bottles cool. My plan is to go with the gerber bag for a few weeks and if I don’t love it, switch them out. If you end up using it as a diaper bag, let me know how it works for you! https://i.pinimg.com/236x/e7/79/75/e77975b7e5b6e2769149b51c83bedf91---gifts-love-gifts.jpg
This is new-ish onto the cash envelope wallet scene and quickly becoming a crowd favorite. The All About the Benjamins wallet comes in 7 colors (solid colors, no patterns). This wallet isn’t flashy and you can most likely find a color to match your purse. It has two big compartments where you can put your cash envelopes or cash dividers. At the time of this article, the wallets are $48/each. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/8f/cc/29/8fcc29a33b0f282bcee6f477fffc8561--paisley-design-thirty-one.jpg
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.
I LOVE the Around Town Tote. I took this on a trip to the Smokies with me earlier this week and it worked perfectly. This roomy tote stored my laptop, planner, extra pens, chargers and travel brochures. It easily held everything I needed to sneak out of my hotel room and into the hotel lobby to work at night and I love the Skies for You Pebbles color. It is available in four different colors and many personalization options for $78. Personalization is extra. https://i.pinimg.com/474x/82/72/b0/8272b01944fc7f1086db47855d1ca318.jpg
