Thirty-One Gifts Review and Mother's Day Giveaway

The Story Behind Thirty-One
Nine years ago I (Cindy Monroe-Founder and CEO) was working full-time in corporate America, trying to live life with my husband and our two children, managing work, home, church, kids' activities and still trying to find time for myself. On top of all that, I am a girl, and girls must shop, right? My busy lifestyle made it so difficult to find time to visit all of those cute little gift boutiques where the really great products are. I decided it was time for working moms and women everywhere to get a chance to shop on their terms. I prayed to find a way to offer something that would help women like me contribute to their lives financially by owning their own business. It is from this passionate resolve that Thirty-One was born. I began sewing purses with one machine in the basement of my home in Chattanooga, Tenn., and I'm awestruck when I see how far we have come with the support and dedication of so many people. Today, our Thirty-One family has grown to more than 60,000 Consultants nationwide!
The name Thirty-One comes from the verses of Proverbs 31. These words may be thousands of years old, but I am constantly amazed by how today's modern woman can relate to them. The Proverbs 31 woman is dearly loved and respected by her family, yet she is an individual in her own right. She manages the home and property with kindness and integrity. Her savvy business skills are partly brought about by her desire to serve others, to do good deeds and prosper. I knew women just like this, and I wanted to find a way for every woman to be recognized for who they are and for their hard work!

What is the mission of Thirty-One Gives?

We believe in Her – women and girls. We embrace Her inner beauty and celebrate Her natural gifts. It is our mission to celebrate and empower Her, helping to strengthen Her belief in herself, strengthen Her family, and to lead a purposeful, thriving life. You can find out more about their Thirty-One Gives Program at http://www.thirtyonegives.org/.

Plus you will also receive 10% off any order place, under the "Lazy Daisy" event, during the week of this giveaway. Please note that the 10% discount will be applied after the event closes, so you won't see it until then.To find out more go HERE.


After contacting Kirstin Tracy - A Thirty-One Consultant - I was blessed with the opportunity to review three of their awesome products.  She even had them personalized for me. The first one is the Organizing Utility Tote ($25 + $7 personalization = $32 value). It has a very roomy interior plus 7 outer pockets. 
The second one is the All-in-One organizer bag.  For every $31 you spend during the month of May,  you can get this bag for $5. Plus you will also receive 10% off any order place, under the "Lazy Daisy" event, during the week of this giveaway. To find out more go HERE. I plan on taking advantage of this and getting me a new lunch tote.

As you can see they hold quite a bit of yarn and would also hold your patterns, hook/needles, and other goodies you need for your projects.  They are made of a heavy and durable laminated nylon that will stand up to heavy use.  I have quite a few ideas for this bag but I haven't decided for sure yet.  I am hoping for news on a  new job for the upcoming school year and I am saving it until I know for sure one way or the other.  Fingers crossed!!

This smaller one would be great to take along for small projects on the go. It has two outer pockets.  I think ours will be used for library books.  We have been making quite a few trips to the library lately and this will come in handy.

But that's not all they are good for. The possible uses for these bags are endless.

You can view their online catalog for even more wonderful products and ideas. All of their products come in a wide range of colors for every taste or occasion.
The last product I received was one of their cute Wristlet Key Fobs in Aqua Circle Spirals. (Forgot to get a picture before using it.)

 I love all of the products Thirty-One makes and plan to order a few more things from my self soon.
