A few weeks ago I was shocked and saddened to find my favorite lunch bag was no longer useable. Note to self don’t leave bananas in a bag in your car for an entire hot weekend!
This particular bag I had become attached to it was from Thirty-one and had latest me and my family over 3 years of use without incident. I’m a brown bag it to work girl almost everyday since I like to workout on my lunch and don’t have time to go get food. What was I going to do?
I didn’t have time to be without my favorite lunch bag. This bag held everything 2 water bottle + glad containers, a real fork and kept it cold!
I posted a message to my friends on facebook to see who would be able to aid me in buying a new lunch bag and was shocked that none of my friends in my area had heard of 31? SERIOUSLY? How is that even possible!
My mission now is to share with you my many uses and LOVE of Thirty-One products! And of course help you get your hands on some!
WITH A GIVEAWAY!!! If you’re not a winner, My friend Erin a thirty one consultant was kind enough to set me up with an online party as well!
I was first introduced to Thirty- One purses a few years back when my sister had a party. I bought a few things as they were so cute I coudldn’t say no!
After I started using them I now find it hard to use anything else! So I’m sharing with you my three favorite styles and giving you a chance to win one of them!
This bag is one of my all time favorites! The Storage Tote! It easily handles all my ridiculous items and transitions well from park to beach to home! They come in handy as a quick gym bag too!
I’m not sure they make this color anymore (sad face) but as a mom I love that it NEVER shows dirt. I use it for quick day trips because it can hold my wallet, keys, sippy cups,snacks and an extra outfit easily without being uncomfortable to carry.
My boys like it because it has our name on it! At crowded events they can always find “Mommy’s Bag”. They also are super easy to wash I throw mine in with my regular clothes all the time.
Of course I adore the lunch bag ( Thermal Tote) which is how this all started! I wish I had a photo of my first one, it was black and white with big polka dots! This is my new one and it’s just as wonderful as the first!
I would be lying if I told this only works well for lunches! It’s also great for long car rides to keep drinks and snacks cold for the kids. I may have also used it a time or two tailgating :) It is easier to carry than one of those styrofoam or plastic coolers. And I know for a fact it can hold six solid beers!
My other favorite is the utility tote. In the above photo it is the Black & White bag in back. Some of you may know I run a watch businesses as well as this blog. I use one of these bags to store all of my beads and accessories.
I have a second that I use as an easy way to keep my blog information organized all in one place. The pockets outside of this bag are extremely useful. I can store pens, pencils, invoice sheets, stapler, you name it, all at easy access. No more fumbling around in the bottom of a bag to find it.
These bags are made from extremely sturdy canvas and keep their shape really well even empty. This bag has been a lifesaver for me it’s fast to pick up and have all my things for my business at hand. Try easily taking a file cabinet with you! Thirty-one has been great for helping me keep it together!
This is the bag I keep for all my blog things, magazines, meal ideas, receipts and planning sheets all in one place:
