Thirty One Organizing Utility Tote Giveaway

I can hardly believe it’s been a year since I started Organizing Homelife.  August 2, was my 1 Year Blogiversary, and I thought it would be fun to celebrate with a fun giveaway!

BONUS UPDATE!!!! Everyone who places an order through Organizing Homelife will be entered in a drawing to win a second Organizing Utility Tote!!!

I’m sure you’ve heard of Thirty One bags and gifts, haven’t you?  Thirty One’s super stylish, functional bags and accessories are designed to make your life a little easier!

And, I’m happy to announce that you have a chance to win an Organizing Utility Tote from Thirty One!  Gotta love anniversaries when they come with an awesome gift!

Jessica, my fabulous Thirty One consultant, sent me an Organizing Utility Tote in the Parisian Pop pattern.  Isn’t it perfect?  To say I love it is an understatement!

It has seven pockets on the outside and a large interior space giving you so many possibilities for organizing!

In a few weeks, when school starts, we begin the crazy schedules of gymnastics and ballet lessons, kids clubs, and committee meetings.  It can be so crazy keeping everything straight.  Every week, twice a week, I sit at the ballet studio for a of couple hours at a time.  I usually have my hands full with books, papers, and other things I’m working on.

The Organizing Utility Tote to the rescue!  It can carry all sorts of things.  I picked up a letter file bin at Office Max and put it in the tote.  It fits inside perfectly.  If I want, I can easily take it out and use the tote as a bag.

I’m using it when I need to work on paperwork and send thank you notes…

I can also take along school work that needs grading, schedules I need to work on, and some of my many binders to organize meetings, etc.

It makes it so easy to take my work along with me while I’m running the kids to lessons and activities!

There are a zillion things you could use it to organize, but here are just a few suggestions:

  • Library books
  • Magazines
  • Binders
  • Sports gear
  • Recipe books and menu planner
  • Thank you notes, envelopes, stamps and address book
  • School work
  • …and SO much more!

There are so many awesome products!  I chose a few of my favorites to show you.  I LOVE the Fold and Go Organizer with Notepad.  And I love that the Cinch Sac is only $20!  It’s perfect for kids’ sports gear.

And look how many patterns it comes in…

These are just a few of my favorite Thirty One products.  You should definitely check out the Thirty One Catalog here.  Jessica is so sweet to offer Organizing Homelife readers a $5 gift certificate toward a future purchase when you buy any product through my site!  Just mention Organizing Homelife with your order.

BONUS UPDATE!!!! Everyone who places an order through Organizing Homelife will be entered in a drawing for a second Organizing Utility Tote!!!

    thank you

    I love the All-in-One Organizer. I use it as my “errand bag.” I just drop whatever needs to be taken care of when I run errands into the pretty tote and am ready to go. I really enjoy reading your blog. I first found you with your “Label Your Leftovers with a Dry Erase Crayon.” You had me there with practical, useful and doable.

    I love the large utility totes. They keep my baby stuff organized in the minivan. No more running out of diapers, losing toys (or shoes) and plenty of Kleenex for their constantly runny noses. I like any fabric with dots!

    Love your site! I have a thirtyone lunch box that I absolutely love! Looking forward to seeing more of their products!

  52. JulieBee in Iowa says

    I love a lot of the thirtyone products. The scrapbooking room really appeals to me. I especially like the large utility tote and would want it in so many colors it would be hard to choose – aqua, the black paisley, no, the mint chip? Then I’d go for everything else in the room; including the furniture. So I would be thrilled to win the tote! :)

  53. Julie N. says

    My mom just bought the wall organizer and can’t say enough good things about it! She has been RAVING for days about this piece. I also just bought the fold-n-go and it holds my Kindle perfectly!!! I am LOVING 31 products!

  54. Brandi says

    I LOVE the large utility tote and love the black and white pattern pictured in this blog post. A teacher’s essential for sure!

  55. Debi Adams says

    I love Thirty-One bags! I’ve got one of the small
    utility totes in my car for trash. Just love it! I also
    use the thermal tote as a knitting bag; and one
    for carrying my basic scrapbooking tools to
    classes and crops!

  56. says

    I really like the small zipper pouches as I could put few of them in my purse and keep small items finally in one place. I also really like the bag to hold file organizers. How convenient!!!
