As you struggle to fit all of your necessities into your bag, you become frustrated that you have to crush your chips and papers so that everything fits. A Thirty-One Organizing Utility Tote is the roomy solution to your storage needs when you are on the go. It measures approximately 6.5 inches in diameter, 10.25 inches in height, and 15.5 inches in width. There is a version that has an open top and a version with a zipper. The tote without the zipper offers more storage space due to the openness, but the option with the zipper keeps everything better contained, which is an advantage if you carry lots of smaller necessities. If you find that you need a bit more space, the Thirty-One Large Organizing Utility Tote is a terrific alternative. With a diameter of 10 inches, a height of 11.75 inches, and a width of 21.5 inches, this tote is ideal when you need to keep your bulky items safely contained. The reliable sellers on eBay offer a great variety of Thirty-One's gorgeous prints so that you can find one that fits your style. When you have a full agenda for the day, you need to have all of your essentials close by. The Thirty-One Organizing Utility Tote lets you carry everything that you need for your busy day. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/62/61/6e/62616e748112bcfed421fccb2a86bb3b--thirty-one-gifts--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/0b/3a/5d/0b3a5d8a179c04d27bff553af1466431--smoky-eye-makeup-cool-makeup.jpg


My FAVORITE product from Thirty-One Gifts is the Fashion Games purse in Cognac Woods Pebble. I have used this purse exclusively for over a year and a half. It has doubled as my briefcase and carried my laptop on several flights to Atlanta and California and I use it around town as my everyday purse. I love the slouchy style, the roomy interior and the small inside pockets where I can put my phone or keys and not lose them. After near daily use, this product is showing very little wear.  Originally this item cost $98 but it’s now available as an online extra for $58 plus tax and shipping. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/a1/fb/23/a1fb230e7aa984b6209355165e440cf2.jpg

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 tested the rfid with my work badge, and it couldn't be read so the rfid works. It holds a good amount of cards, the construction is good enough for me and I've had it for a few months, dropping it quite a few times and it's still in tact. Only negative is that if you drop it, everything falls out. So I opted for a zippered case for work (rfid doesn't work but I'm not concerned about being scanned there, so no biggie) because I'm in and out of my pockets all day and have a lot of drops. I now use this case only when i go out or travel, it's very convenient and i don't have to worry about dropping it all the time.


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/474x/cb/e5/fe/cbe5fec0941601f1df79b8ac0b37905c.jpg

Awesome quality and BEAUTIFUL . Has a nice shine to it but it doesn't make it look cheesy or cheap. It in fact looks like a very exspensive chain. I was worried because it wasn't super pricey and usually you get what ya pay for but my husband loves it and he is hard to please . Not super heavy either which we like . The length is PERFECT! Very very VERY pleased with my purchase https://i.pinimg.com/originals/6d/f4/f3/6df4f323c2442a19d4b391b9984d22f5.jpg

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/236x/80/c0/df/80c0df67efb6eca60c6af0c2b277eb43.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. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/36/1d/a6/361da6be2bfc92f42d0ff2144a5caa24--crosses.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

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/80/e3/4a/80e34ac1339a04067fed7f9f44dfda53--meal-replacement-shakes-meal-replacements.jpg

I originally needed two pairs of work pants. I love cargos since they are loose but fitting, comfy, and have lots of.pockets without the extra added weight. I bought two at Wal-Mart and instantly loved them. Then bought a pair on amazon for about the same price. If you want a pair to wear casually, go for it. They look better than anything old navy has to offer. They are cheaper in price but better in quality as well. Only disappointment is the limited colors. I wanted to buy two pair in navy. One for work one for casual wear. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/0c/ab/9c/0cab9c4ac58bd81094fbe72445b4a737--freedom-patriot.jpg

One would expect that with all my road trip experience, I’d be an expert when it comes to packing. Honestly, I’m not. Road tripping, as opposed to flying, has spoiled me because normally I can pack whatever I want with little regards to space issues. Instead of learning how to condense my clothing, I’ve learned what luggage, totes, and bags I prefer to use when I travel. https://i.pinimg.com/150x150/69/57/72/695772bab739bfdf0e283ec5afaaaaeb.jpg
For at least a month, try the basically-free method of using standard white mailing envelopes (or any of the other cheap DIY cash envelope organizers). Label each envelope with a budget category, stuff them with cash, and put them in your purse. If you stick to this system for a month or more, and find that it is helping you curb your spending and stay within budget, then invest in a special cash envelope wallet.
