How I came to know about  Thirty-One Gifts.

I have to be 100% honest, I have been invited to numerous Thirty-One Gifts parties over the years and never gone. I really didn’t see what the big deal was, although I did admire a bag or two my friend would show me.

Then this summer I stumbled on a like new large utility tote and fell in love with it. I use it to shop numerous community yard sales over the season, and I could not believe how many yard sale treasures it could  hold before I had to empty it out in my car to do some more shopping.

The tote came camping with us and held beach gear that it normally takes two bags to hold.

It  currently goes to Aldi with me each week and holds a tonne of groceries.

What I like most about the utility tote

  • made up of durable fabric
  • easy to wipe down when it gets dirty
  • can be used in so many ways
  • long enough handles that you can sling it over your shoulder

The Zip-Top Organizing Utility Tote & Mini Zipper Pouch

Katie sent me both the Zip-Top Organizing Utility Tote & Mini Zipper Pouch so that I could try them out and share what I thought about them with you.

My Thoughts On the Zip-Top Organizing Utility Tote

I was thrilled to see how much room the Zip-Top Organizing Utility Tote has, and put it right to work as my new crafts on the go bag (my previous bag by another company, got a hole in it recently  after 10 years of service) .

I put a large ball of yarn in it, my knitting needles, a small camera, my kindle and even my entire purse and there was still room for more.

This bag is so versatile.  Now that I have one I have spotted others toting them around as diaper bags, gym bags or just using them as a purse. I think the Zip-Top Organizing Utility Tote would also make a great carry-on for those of you that travel by air.

My Thoughts On The Mini Zipper Pouch

The uses for the mini zipper pouch are endless. It would make a great gift filled with pens and pencils for the artist in your life, or nail supplies, or make-up, or ……. there are so many possibilities.

I am using mine to hold scissors, pens, gum, and a few other things that usually just roll around in my purse. It is saving me time since I don’t have to dig for these items anymore.

OH and I almost forgot, Thirty-One offers personalization of their items. You can add your initials or name to the items you order, or the initial or name of the loved one you are buying the gift for. Christmas is just weeks away and there are so many great Christmas gifts to be found at Thirty-One.

You can enter to win both of these items below. You can also enter to win a $50 gift card to Thirty-One Gifts by filling out Katie’s one answer survey.

Having now taken a look through the catalog I can say the prices are reasonable for the quality of the product you are getting. They even offer 152 items under $20 with many being a low as $5. Many of  these lower priced items would make great Christmas gifts.
