I meant to do this post a few weeks ago when I got my stuff from Thirty-One but I just didn't take time to do it! Personally, I love seeing how other people use fun bags - it gives me ideas how to use mine! Get this, my catalog show ended up being the largest show in a three month challenge so I earned $100 in free product. I'm putting that order together now and I can't wait to get more stuff!!
Before I actually hosted my show, I placed an order with a friend and got these three items:
Now, this is what I earned at my own party. My first priority was putting together a scrapbooking organization center to be able to pull it out easily and also carry it without a problem.
Sorry for this photo but I realized that I didn't post about these two bags until after I had them packed and lined up to go on vacation. The one on the left is the XXL Utility Tote and let me tell you, it is huge. It comes with three totes that fit inside of it - I packed all of Nate's clothes for vacation in one, all of Josh's in another and all of our rehearsal/wedding clothes - including shoes - in the third. They have so much room!! I was shocked at the size of it. It is almost too big but it is great for packing up the boys! The one next to it is the Brown Duffel bag. It's quilted and really sturdy plus it has wheels/handle to pull it if needed. When I saw it, I thought it wouldn't hold much but I packed all of my clothes including extra shoes and a sweat jacket with room to spare. I used a normal size small suitcase for my husband and didn't get all of his stuff in it so I guess my new bag IS big!
So, my honest opinion of Thirty-One products? They are really awesome. I love how sturdy they are and that they have so many uses. I do wish that all products came in all patterns because I would have liked all of my scrapbooking items to be the same pattern but it wasn't possible.
If you like anything you see or just love bags, check out this Thirty-One website - it is my consultant's website. You can order at anytime or, you can also click on "My Parties" and see if there happens to be a party in progress and help that hostess out by ordering through her party (you can have it delivered right to your home!)
I'm looking forward to getting my next few items and I still have a wish list of things to pick up in the future!
