Unforgettable Memories – 2013 National Conference

I could talk about Thirty-One’s 2013 National Conference forever! After reading all the Facebook posts about it I think most of you can, too!  We experienced record-breaking attendance, incredible speakers, facilitators, unbelievable amenities and filled our tanks with tons of knowledge, tips and inspiration.  I hope you all took home a TOTE-ful of great memories and friendships that will last a lifetime.   My take away is to focus whole-heartedly on relationships.  We stacked up on sound advice on how to establish, maintain and build relationships.  I had many memorable moments but one of the best was seeing all my team members gathering for a group picture.  This moment brought tears to my eyes!  I can’t wait until next year for the biggest Thirty-One party of the year!

Halloween Solutions using Thirty-One Products

Halloween is coming up fast! Don’t just celebrate with candy and costumes — take this opportunity to organize your supplies!

For your decorating, clean out those bulky plastic bins or old cardboard boxes and put your supplies in the Large Utility Tote! To make it even more storage friendly, add a Top-A-Tote! You can easily see what’s in each tote using the clear PVC window at the top with your supplies safely zipped up inside!  These totes are flexible, sturdy, and have convenient handles! Whether you just set out a few fall-themed arrangements and a candy bowl or build a haunted house on your lawn, Thirty-One can really help you clean up the holiday clutter!

 

Don’t just hand out your candy from a bowl this year! Use a Mini Utility Bin! This neat bag has easy to grip handles on the sides, and can hold lots of candy.  You can also use a few Littles Carry-All Caddys to sort your kids’ candy when they get home. Whether you’re separating it by type (lollipop, chocolate, gum, etc) or per child, these small totes will help keep everything tidy as you inspect their treats! You can also use them to ration out the candy so that no one eats too many sweets in one sitting!

 

For keeping a flashlight close at hand, get a Wristlet Key Fob. Most small or keychain flashlights have a keying or loop at the back. Just attach the flashlight to the key fob. This a very comfortable way to carry a flashlight while you walk around your neighborhood. You’ll have a light always in reach, but your hands can be free if your little ones need a costume adjustment or just help crossing the street.

To get the most use out of your kids’ costumes, put them in a Super Organizing Tote and fill it with other great pretend props like paper crowns, fake treasure, and other small toys. This tote has a zippered top, five pockets, and two mesh side pockets.  This bag can be a big hit on a chilly fall afternoon and lets them use their imaginations instead of a game console.

 

Have a safe and fun Halloween with these great solutions using Thirty-One products!

Make it a Thirty-One Game Night!

With school starting, it’s about to get a little harder for the whole family to spend time together. There will be afterschool practices, booster clubs, and PTA meetings. Use some great Thirty-One products to spend time with your family!

One night a week, turn off the TV and have a family game night! While sometimes you’ll have to reschedule to accommodate recitals or away games or just homework, try to make it a regular, weekly appointment.

For the first few nights, plan ahead and organize what games you’re going to play. This is easier on you – for setting things up – and will make the game nights smoother until you establish them as routine.

Make a Score kit. For games like charades you’ll be on teams. If you want to keep score, write the numbers 1 – 10 on two sets of index cards longways. Punch a hole in the center of the top of each card and string a ribbon through it or slide each card onto a key ring. Now you’ve got a score card for each team. You can put these cards and other supplies for game night (like spare pens and pencils) in a Littles Carry-All Caddy with sets of card games or spare dice.

Keep your supplies together. Board games and puzzles are a great place to start, but they can get boring if you go back to them too often.  Try using an Organizing Utility Tote to keep up with supplies for DIY games. Get a stopwatch or kitchen timer for games like charades, a blindfold and Velcro-dots for impromptu pin the tail on the donkey, blank stickers for “Who am I?” and other props for the other childhood games you loved.  Don’t forget to include little prizes! Things like “get out of 1 chore” coupons or “winner picks the next game” are free and fun to win!

Make a simple dinner. For game night, keep dinner light and simple and have healthy snacks ready for nibbling between turns or games. The Small Rectangle Basket is a great way to carry all the snacking paraphernalia you’ll need from the kitchen to your den or living room. Fill it with a box of crackers, a block of cheese with a knife or slicer, pre-sliced fruit in a sealed box, nuts, pretzels, party mix, and a closed pitcher of water or tea. Cups, napkins, and plates will also fit in the neat basket. As an added bonus, once game night is over, the Small Rectangle Basket works well to clean up the snack supplies and take them back to the kitchen without making more than one trip.

Don’t let a busy schedule get in the way of spending time with your family!
