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.

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.

Monica and I used to teach together years ago so I was delighted that she wanted to become one of our sponsors. I first became acquainted with this company when I attended a Thirty-One party hosted by someone at our church. I was impressed with the quality of the products and bought the grandgirls the cutest cinch bags to put all their gear in when they go to the pool or the beach.
They have lunch bags, caddies, tall bins, utility totes that can be used for like trunk organization and the like, backpacks, jewelry, wall décor, pillows, and more. They’re perfect Mother’s Day gifts, they’re perfect baby shower gifts (helllllo Baby by ThirtyOne is an actual thing), they’re perfect housewarming gifts, and they’re perfect treat-yo-self gifts too.
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 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.
One of the easiest ways to stay organized is with a fantastic bag. With choices that range from totes to purses and wallets, Thirty-One bags can get absolutely every aspect of your life in order. The bags are available in a huge variety of patterns and colors, so they work with any wardrobe and any outfit. The material is also easy to clean, so you never have to worry about spills. Whether you need help keeping things in order for work or at home, there is a bag that will work. Thirty-One diaper bags have pockets that can help you separate clothes and extra diapers from formula and snacks. And when the kids are out of diapers, the bag holds up long enough that you can repurpose it for another phase of life. Thirty-One's affinity for organizational tools does not end with diaper bags and totes. Thirty-One cosmetic bags can keep your makeup and skin care in order either at home for daily use or for those weekend trips. With the large selection of Thirty-One bags on eBay, you can find both the latest designs and discontinued styles that knowledgeable sellers can still offer.

Thirty-One Gifts is a direct sales company that specializes in functional and fashionable handbags, totes, lunch bags, accessories, home organizational products, and other carryall products. Many of our products can also be personalized! The company was founded by Cindy Monroe, a working mother who enjoyed shopping in boutiques but never had the time to find the items she loved with her busy schedule. She created Thirty-One Gifts as a way to bring the boutique experience home, with the added benefit of giving women the benefit of earning an income from home. The company’s mission is “to celebrate, encourage and reward women through offering quality products and an outstanding opportunity to become successful business owners.”

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
