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.
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.

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/08/ab/b6/08abb6548b84e9862e162d1eec54dca8.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/f7/f7/55/f7f75542f9a4e73bed9f7cfa9e26c6c9.jpg
I love the flexibility of the Large Utility Tote. I have several large and deluxe size totes and each one serves a different purpose. I use them to store camping gear on outdoor trips, contain my portable kitchen for road trips, and as my suitcase. I can easily pack all my clothes, including my fashion boots, and other necessary items for an entire week in this tote paired with the see-through lid so I can easily see what is stored inside. The Deluxe Utility Tote is larger and has outside pockets. The Large Utility Tote sells for $35 and the Deluxe sell for $50. Several pattern options are available. You can purchase Top-a-Tote see-through lid to complement your tote for $10. Monogrammed personalization of the tote is extra.
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. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/05/38/63/0538636f806d7b67f52754eebfc00141--uplift-eye-serum-skin-problems.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/c5/16/b5/c516b5c220904e572d68ec7202ab4f13.jpg
“I sell Thirty-one, I started because I love their products and thought I could get a discount and make some money! Thirty-one has great kid, family, Mom boss and vegan friendly products, that last forever! I love Thirty-one bc their sole mission is empowering women here and through their charity work. I have done almost all Facebook parties and a few fundraisers!” -Lyn https://i.pinimg.com/236x/6d/35/48/6d354851799bfd2d9339c74fea656812.jpg
