Giveaway: Thirty-One Mini Organizer, Picnic Tote or Large Organizer – 3 Winners Total!

December 12, 2012

UPDATE: Giveaway has ended. Winners will be announced soon!

One of my biggest resolutions for 2013 is to get myself and my house organized. I’m going to work on tackling a new part of my house each month. And the place I will probably be ordering some helpful things from is a company called Thirty-One. My friend Cassandra is a consultant for them and I have had the privilege of using some of the items recently that they sell. I’m slowly on my way to getting a little more organized already!

They have an amazing Market Thermal Tote that I just love, love love!  I can’t wait to use it next year at the Farmer’s Markets. It’s something that I like to take with me when I am buying a lot of frozen goods or produce/dairy products at the grocery store. It’s nice to keep these things separate from everything else so my dry goods products can just be carried right to where I store my stockpile. No more double trips!

They also have a Large Utility Tote that I like to use for all my kid’s at-home school things. Whenever we want to work on a new activity, I just pull it out of the tote. I don’t need to spend time looking for this or that as it’s all in one place. This tote is large enough to hold everything I need.

Awhile back, I ordered one of their mini zipper pouches that I had personalized with the kids’ names on it. I keep it in my backpack and use it to put my jewelry, watch, etc. for when I fly. It’s a great way to keep them all together when you have to go through airport security. I learned the hard way that just throwing stuff in my backpack turns into a lot of fishing around for the items later and I almost lost a necklace once that way! I love that kids’ names are on it as it feels like they are always with me even when I’m not at home.

Other things that I think would be useful?:

~Fold N File: Great way to store coupon inserts, printed recipes, etc.
~Small Magazine Basket: Great way to keep all your magazines in one place. I can never seem to find mine when I finally have time to read them!
~Littles Carry-All Caddy: This looks cute for keeping things like hair bows and barrettes in one place and set prettily on a counter for easy access.
~Over-sized Storage Container: Slides under the bed. Great for storing seasonal items. I might need one for books that I’m not reading but want to keep!
~Weekender Bag: Great for keeping a bag ready in case of emergencies or for a quick getaway.
~Hang-up Room Organizer: Great for keeping mail organized, for take-out menus, kid’s school forms, etc.

They will be running a promotion for orders from 1/4 – 1/31/13 that for every $31 you spend, you get 50% Off a select item from their “Your Way” Collection. Want to know what I hope my office looks like by the end of next year? This is it all organized and pretty-like:

But don’t worry, there’s still time to get in on their December promotion, which runs through orders through 12/31/12. For every $31 you spend, you get a “Holi-Buy” for just $5! Choices include: mini utility-bin, thermal tote, cinch sak, timeless wristlet or timeless beauty bag. You can read all about that deal in the banner pic here.

Cassandra has been incredibly generous in giving me three items to giveaway. There will be one different winner for each item. Here are the prizes:

Mini Organizer – I have an organizer with pockets like this that I keep at our dining room table and use for school work. I keep flash cards in the pockets and pull them out for instant studying. Whenever I am busy in the kitchen, they go over to the bag and pull out something new to do.

Picnic Thermal Tote – This one is personalized with “Coupon Geek.” Great way to take the kids out for a day at the park and a meal afterwards! Or you might be able to store coupons in the front pocket for when you shop!

Large Utility Tote – This one is also personalized with “Coupon Geek.” This is a great way to keep a lot of stuff on hand for a quick on-the-go. You could also store all your coupon needs in here. Weekly ads, coupon inserts, binder, menu planning things, etc.

Thirty-One has such great products and I hope you will take a minute to see what they have. You might find something to help you get a little more organized, too!
