Thirty-One! Totally lives up to the hype!

You guys!

I have THE BEST holiday shopping idea for you!

You should buy a Thirty-One bag-- or several-- for just about everyone on your list.

I have recently fallen in love with the Picnic Thermal Tote and the Large Utility Tote, both of which have made packing for trips, going to parties, and doing the weekend hockey shuffle so much easier.

The Picnic Thermal Tote will hold 6 bottles of wine-- more than even I need for a day!-- or two two-liters or a bunch of food for, say, 4 hungry kids.  And the Large Utility Tote is perfect for Costco trips, bringing Dorothy's toys to -- you guessed it-- hockey games, and packing for weekend trips.  I love them both and am already eyeing the catalogue for more-- monogrammed-- additions.

We loaded the Large Utility Toe up to take drinks and a cheese tray and a gag gift to a Christmas party-- and when I put my Uggs on for the tipsy walk home, I could fling my sparkly gold heels in there, too.
 The next morning, I packed the adorable Picnic Thermal to the gills with a lunch for 3/4 of the kids to enjoy ether at or on the way home from hockey.
 I could even fit plates and napkins!  We're suddenly so civilized!
 And I packed the Utility Tote full of Dorothy's toys.
 And as an added bonus, I don't have to stuff my huge purse with our stuff (that never fits, requiring us to also bring super classy reusable shopping bags) and I can carry my often-neglected smaller purses instead.
 Both bags even joined us on our Thanksgiving trip-- one with American Girl dolls and Crockpot (natch), and the other with car snacks galore.

I was supplied with these bags for review, but the delight is all my own.  These bags are terrific and a perfect addition to your holiday wish list!


  1. My sister-in-law is obsessed with them too. They go "camping" every weekend (since when did staying in a 2 bedroom, 1 full bath, full kitchen, two TVs, luxury "camper" become "camping"?) and she hauls stuff there in her 31 bags. She swears by them.

    I love you neglected red purse!

  2. I love thirty one!!! The utility totes are what I use for laundry. And I love their All About the Benjamins wallet. I've had it two years with no look of the neglect it goes through!!

  3. Ooh! I also use the snap pockets in the car to hold books and notepads for the kids in the third row! And their caddy for Julia's endless art supplies/hoarding problem.
