Thirty-One Organizing Utility Tote Review & Giveaway

How many of you have heard of the company Thirty-One Gifts?  I was first introduced to Thirty-One Gifts a couple of years ago but didn’t get a chance to try the products for myself until last Spring.

About Thirty-One:

Our stylish, affordable products are exclusive to Thirty-One. From our signature purses and totes to storage solutions that help organize your life, you’ll find something to fit every personality and situation. Each season, we develop new products built on the idea that our products must be functional AND fashionable (and, of course, make great gifts!).

My mother-in-law purchased LuLu a Thermal Totes during a promotion around Easter in 2011.  I was so pleased with the thermal tote that I purchased a fantastic beach tote (called the Tote-Ally Awesome Tote) in the Circle Spirals print a couple months later.

LuLu uses her lunch tote daily at school.  The size is perfect and it’s easy to clean (a huge plus for parents!)  My beach tote held up well with all the abuse we put it through over the summer.  I love the pattern and how easily all our gear and towels fit inside.

Adding to my Thirty-One collection, I received the Organizing Utility Tote in Black Parisian Pop from Rachel, an independent Thirty-One Consultant, based out of the Hampton Roads area of Virginia.   The Organizing Utility Tote is great for just about anything.  You can use it to store coupons and accessories, at the gym, carrying papers home from work and would even make a perfect diaper bag.  I’m actually considering getting my sister-in-law one to use for my new nephew.

The new Spring Catalog was released today and it has even more gorgeous prints than when I choose my Tote.  I love the Black Parisian Pop print but would have probably gone with the Awesome blossoms if it had been available last month.  There is just something about the yellow and grey combination that I find appealing.

Now, you all know how much I love to save money! I couldn’t possibly have a post about Thirty-One products and not mention the February Monthly Special – for every $31 spent, get 1 item 31% off!  The possibilities are endless on how to work this deal to get more of your favorite Thirty-One products for less!

It’s always fun to get friends, family & co-workers together for a show.  Not only do you get an excuse to throw a party but hostess can earn:

  • FREE Products
  • Half Price Products
  • Exclusive Hostess Items

If you’re looking to make extra money for 2012, you can become a Thirty-One Consultant for just $99.  The Spring 2012 Enrollment Kit includes everything pictured above!

If you’re interested in placing an order, becoming a consultant or hosting a show, you can get all of Rachel’s contact information from her website.

I have been extremely pleased with the quality and attractiveness of all my Thirty-One products and I think you will be too!
