I have to come clean about something. As a homeschooling, grocery shopping, live out of my van type of gal, I’m always hauling stuff around. And by stuff, I mean curriculum, grocery lists in my notebook, and binders for everything imaginable, because I’m a binder girl.
Whenever I leave the house with all of my crud, I reach into a drawer in my kitchen, and drag out whatever ratty canvas bag is on top.
AND IT HARDLY EVER MATCHES MY ENSEMBLE.
Unless I’m wearing my stained yoga pants, and favorite t-shirt with the air vents (code for holes). Unsightly, to be sure.
I was contacted by Christy, an Independent Director from the company Thirty One Gifts, and she asked me if I’d like to review one of her most popular bags, the Organizing Utility Tote. Frankly, she had me at Organizing.
Now let me say that I know some Thirty One Gifts consultants, and I have ADMIRED ALL THE CUTE BAGS they haul around.
I said youbetcha, and commenced with selecting the fabric that I wanted. I ended up choosing the Black Tailor Stripe. What I love about this bag is that it has 7 exterior pockets and it’s WASHABLE. And okay, it’s as adorable as can be. And because it’s black striped with a bright pink shoulder strap, IT MATCHES MY ENSEMBLE.
Which almost always contains some variation of black.
There are a number of beautiful fabrics to choose from, depending on how you purpose this bag. This same style can be used as a diaper bag, computer bag, gym bag, beach bag, and my personal favorite, a bag for All The Binders.
Here’s the best part. I get to give away an Organizing Utility Tote to one lucky reader, who then gets to personalize it by selecting the fabric they want! All you have to do is go to the catalog section (pg. 43) of Christy’s website, and come back and tell me in the comments on this post which fabric choice of the Organizing Utility Tote most appeals to you. And I hope that it hasn’t escaped your notice, that this giveaway is just in time for Mother’s Day!
