Thirty One Gifts ~ $25 Gift Certificate Giveaway!

This post may contain affiliate or advertiser links. Read my full disclosure policy here.


Last year one of my friends gave me the cutest little cooler bag from Thirty-One Gifts. It was the first that I’d heard of the company and I immediately starting browsing their many bags for organizing and fell in love with the different fabrics and styles available. Not only can you get organized, you can do it with some fun and coordinating fabrics. The Thirty-One product line features purses to totes and everything in between.

Two of my favorite Thirty-One bags have been the Large Utility Tote {we have 2 of these} and the Organizing Utility Tote. Our Large Utility Tote {Aqua Circle Spirals pattern} is working wonderfully as our pool tote. All six of our large beach towels are rolled up inside. The bag measures 11.75” H x 21.5” W x 10” D and has 14” handles. It also collapses practically flat when not in use.

Our swim goggles, swim caps, and sunscreen are stored in a Cinch Sack {Circle Spirals pattern} and that drops into the bag nicely. Having the goggles in a separate bag is handy, especially when they are wet!  The Cinch Sack can be used as a backpack and also has a zipper on the front of the bag for easy access into the bag.

The Organizing Utility Tote has been a FABULOUS bag and is currently my teaching tote. It holds so much more than I expected and the little side pockets on it are endless. :) One of the front pockets holds an entire 12-pack of the large dry erase markers. The other pocket hold various pencils, scissors, sharpies, a stapler…and so much more! I dropped in a file folder holder to divide out the inside a little bit, but love this bag.

What I LOVE about Thirty-One Bags

  • Easy to clean ~ Not that I ever spill anything {my kids are the only ones that make messes ~ ahem}, but the fabric is a breeze to clean up!
  • Many of the bags collapse for compact storage ~ when I’m not using them I can fold them down and slide it under a car seat, etc…
  • Large variety of colors and prints ~ the catalog has a wide variety of fabrics to choose from and different ones coordinate with each other.
  • They are sturdy! The handles and fabric are not flimsy, making them easy to carry around and hold lots of stuff. We’ve used our large utility tote to carry around everyone’s roller blades with no problem. The handles are also nice and long, making the bags comfortable to carry.
  • Bags can be personalized ~ if you are giving the bag as a gift or maybe want to label bags with your child’s name, you can choose from a variety of fonts/colors to make it your own.
  • Great sales ~ each month Thirty-One runs a special. The special for March 2012 is the Mini Utility Bin ~ for every $31 you spend, you can order a Mini Utility Bin for $8 {a $14 savings on each bag}.
