Thirty One!

I was first introduce to Thirty-one items by a dear friend whom seems to love these products, yet at the time, I'm not sure if it was because of time or what, but I was just not paying much attention to her. Then one day I was invited to a party and just for the fun of it I decided to attend. I was really impressed by the quality of the products I was seeing.

Thirty One offers a variety and wide selection of products, the Large Tote with inserts (thermal or regular), and Top-A-Tote is just one set of the many items they offer.

Large Utility Tote, Thermal inserts and Top-A-Tote.
Product Description:
Large Utility Tote, Thermal Inserts and Top

All items came all in a nice simple Thirty-One plastic bag; then each item was in it's own large ziplock bag, which is very thoughtful, protective of the item and hygiene.

Thirty-One Organizer Tote

Large Utility Tote: Comes in a variety of patterns and colors (about 20 to chose from), it's approximate size is 11.75"H x 21.5"W x 10"D, can be used with or without the inserts/organizers, and it's fully customizable (ours: Crafty Spices in Orange)

Set of One Single Thermo Organizer, and one Double Thermo Organizer: Fit perfectlly in the tote both come in Grey Pin Dots (Shown on pictures) or Printed Parisian Pop (black pattern); They are water-resistant; have Thermal lining with zipper closure, good for keeping items cold or warm; the approximate size of the single is 10.75"H x 9"W x 6.5"D; and the double 10.75"H x 13"W x 9"D

Top-A-Tote: It is a cover for the Large Utility tote, comes in black, brown or grey, has a clear PVC window, slots for handles to slide through, it's approximate size is 2"H x 22"W x 10.5"D and fits to perfection over the Tote

Our Experience and opinion:
Thirty-One Organizer Tote

I will admit I have not been a big fan of totes, until now I must say. After using the Large Utility Tote from Thirty-One my mind and perspective in reference to totes has change 180 degrees, I love this tote, I can use it for so many things and can fit so much in it, not to mention that with the Thermal organizers I can fit everything and be ready to go.

As you most-likely know I have two little girls and every trip there is many to carry to and from, we used our large utility Tote and it all fits well in one place. In one of our recent trips we manage to used the tote with only the single insert in it, and this is what we packed: A blanket, a change of clothing for each of the girls, diapers and wipes for the little one, burping cloth, phone and tablet, a coloring book with crayons, a set of legos, sandals and in the thermal organizer we put food and snacks needed for the day, we place the Top and head out. It was great to just have to carry one tote and go, well not including that I had to carry our 3 month old as I was not about to put her in it :).

31 uses for the Large Utility Tote
  1. Organizing books
  2. Sports, game day, can carry all sports utilities
  3. Carry snacks for sports day
  4. Take clothing and towels to the pool or beach
  5. Carry groceries from the store (makes being green a bit easier)
  6. Carry folded clothing from the laundry room
  7. Organize Children's toys
  8. Cooler inserts: Great for Transporting party food (We took a turkey 5.5 hours away and it was still frozen at the final destination)
  9. Baby clothing, it's amazing how much you can actually fit
  10. Dirty clothes
  11. kids shoes (easy to just tell them to toss them in the tote)
  12. On the road: Thermo Inserts, Keep juices, pop and milk cool
  13. Car snacks, easy access on the go
  14. Small insert as a medical kit (big enough to fit all medicine needed)
  15. Keep kids blankets and toys all in one place
  1. Clothing for 4 (don't have to unload 3 bags at hotels)
  2. Organize Scrapbook materials and supplies
  3. Organize Office paperwork and materials
  4. Organize computer/electrical cables
  5. Xbox/Console Game with all it's games
  6. Crochet and Needing materials
  7. Keep all Holiday gifts in one place
  8. Organize purses, bags and totes
  9. Hats, gloves, scarf all in one place
  10. Travel using it or flat in a suitcase to be used later
  11. Full day of things to do (toss it all in your large tote and you are ready to go)
  12. Organize the trunk of your Car
  13. Homeschooling (keep all school related in the tote, grab it when you are ready)
  14. Sales rep or home Party consultants (Love the customization feature for this)
  15. Cookie exchanges: carry all trays in a tote.
  16. Every College/University Student should have one for almost all the above.

Pros: Easy to fold and carry, very spacious, easy to clean, multifunctional.
Cons:I would love to have the option of an inset stabilizer like an adjustable or foldable frame as sometimes it starts to give in.

Our final thoughts: This is one tote that after having it, I'm not sure how we would do without it. We give a big thumbs up and recommended to all our friends and family.
