The Amazing, Adaptable Cosmetic Bag!

One of Thirty-One’s most versatile products is the Cosmetic Bag! This bag is 9.5″ high x 12″ wide x 4″deep with one exterior zipper pocket, an interior zipper pocket, and wipable PVC lining!

Glove Box Organizer

Keep your car documents neat and easy to get to! Use the exterior pocket to hold your most current registration and insurance information. Fill the main compartment with your car’s manual, a tire gauge, a small flashlight, a notepad, and pen. For the interior pocket, consider getting a small car accident kit.  Having your important car documents and a few necessary supplies easy to reach and easy-to-carry saves you from digging through papers and other clutter in a disorganized glove box.

Everything Emergency Kit

Combine your travel First Aid, Emergency Sewing, and Clean-up Kits in this one awesome bag! For easy & quick access, put things you’d need fast access to in the outer pocket – like a stain pen, travel wet wipes, and other emergency cleaning supplies.

Since you’re not likely to need it as often, put your sewing kit supplies in the interior pocket: all you need is a couple of needles, a couple of impartial thread colors, a pair of mini scissors and some sizes of buttons and you’re in business.

Use the main compartment for your first aid kit supplies, and add a Mini Zipper Pouch to the large middle compartment to keep the smaller parts of that kit from slipping to the bottom of the bag.  The Cosmetic Bag is big enough to hold extra sun block, an elastic bandage, and a bug spray right along side your Mini Zipper Pouch full of ointment, band-aids, and creams!

With its comfortable handles, this Everything Emergency Kit is easy to pick up as you head to the car or take it along with you to the park!

Travel Mate

If you’re looking for a small day-tote to carry with you on a walking-tour this summer that can still hold the essentials, then the Cosmetic Bag is just what you need! Keep copies of important travel papers (a black & white copy of the photo page of your passport, phone numbers for your hotel & the embassy or consulate, etc) in the interior pocket. The exterior pocket is ideal for a travel guidebook, maps, and your phone or small digital camera. Keep your receipts neatly out of the way in a Mini Zipper Pouch in the main compartment along with a Wristlet Wallet or Five Pocket Clutch! All of that and you’ve still got room for a bottle of water and space for a few souvenirs!

Quick Trip Diaper Bag

Not taking any long trips? Why not be ready for the short ones? Pack the essentials for baby care in this great bag and get going! Diapers, a changing pad, and wipes easily fit in the main compartment of the Cosmetic Bag with space for a drink and a small toy! Hand sanitizer in the interior pocket along with a stain pen and a couple plastic grocery sacks make it easy to clean you up too!  Use the exterior pocket for snacks or comfort items – like pacifiers or rattles. For long visits or excursions, you might need something bigger – like the Organizing Utility Tote – to keep up with all your baby needs, but for those little errands and fast trips, it’s nice to have something so compact to carry it all in!

Cosmetic Bag

Don’t forget that it’s still a great carry-all for your beauty supplies! Whether you want to keep your everyday makeup in something that travels well, or you just need something that can keep your supplies organized without taking up a lot of vanity space, the Cosmetic Bag is a great beauty organization solution!  Add a Mini Zipper Pouch to keep your brushes all together or separate out your eyeshadow colors from everything else. Remember that the PVC lining will let you wipe-away any residue that trickles out of your powders and pigments!

All in all, the Cosmetic Bag is a fantastic addition to anyone’s organizing resources!

Summer Savvy

Get your kids ready for those trips to their Grandparents’ house during summer vacation!

A Square Utility Tote can help grandparents cope with toys and projects that will be temporarily filling up their home. This solution will also help prevent “where’s my toy?” syndrome because your kids will have a central location to keep their games and toys during their visit.

This will also help keep their Grandparents’ home from looking like hurricane-grandkids demolished it.

While backpacks like the Upperclassman Backpack are great suitcases for younger children, teens & preteens might prefer something with a little more space like the Retro Metro Weekender or City Weekender Tote.

Send along a Storage Tote to act as their travel hamper – keeping dirty clothes away from the clean ones even far from home.

For the youngest summer visitors, unpacking into unfamiliar closets and chest of drawers can be a hassle. Send your little ones to Grandma’s already unpacked! Just pack their clothes in the Oversized Storage Organizer. When they get to Grandma’s house, they just slide it under the bed. Now Grandma won’t have to dig through a backpack to find socks the next morning!


In case of swimming, include an Expand-A-Tote Day Extender  with all your kids’ swimming needs like deflated intertubes and floaties, nose plugs, waterproof sun block, etc.

 Add in the All-In-One Organizer with important things that need to travel with your kids or items that their Grandparents might not have for them: medication & instructions, waterproof sun block, kiddies’ Band-Aids, Insect repellent, and anything else you can think to add. Keeping these items in a single tote can keep things running smoothly at Grandma’s house – and save Grandma a lot frustration later.

These products make the trip easier for everyone and let them focus on the time they spend together – not trying to sort out whose sock that is and where are the pool toys. Isn’t that what you really want when your kids stay with their grandparents – for your kids and your parents to play together and connect?

Thirty-One Summer Party Ideas

Summer is the perfect time to have a Thirty-One party.  After being inside all winter and dealing with the rainy spring, everyone will be ready to enjoy nice weather.  The warmer weather makes for a number of great party ideas.   Here is a list of some ideas for summer time parties.

  1. Plan a Thirty One party at a park.  You can set up your merchandise on a picnic table.  Moms can bring the kids and let them play in the park while she enjoys some grownup time with a group of friends while viewing the wonderful lineup of Thirty-One Gifts.  If you really want to get creative you could provide a sitter for the events so that mom can relax and shop.
  2. Plan a pool party. If you don’t have your own pool, use the community pool.  There is always room around the pool to set up a party.  The kids will love you for it.
  3. Plan a party at a kid friendly restaurant especially one with a play land. I love going to places that have areas to entertain the children.  Some of the newer bowling alleys with the arcade and gaming areas are great places for a party.  Mom gets a day out and the children are happy too.
  4. Call you church friends, and plan a party during VBS (Vacation Bible School) time. Drop the kids off and head to Panera or Starbucks for a quick party on the go.
  5. Plan a girl’s night out at a local hot spot. If you have kids, your husband will welcome the chance to spend some quality time with the kids.  You will be doing him a favor.

This list contains a few ideas I have.  I am always interested in fun and exciting ways to present Thirty-one products.  I am sure if you think about it you can come up with a few ideas of your own.  Please share any ideas that you come up with.  My advice is to be as creative as possible to make the party fun.
