The month of May is always such a busy (but amazing) time of year. Mother’s Day rolls around, graduation ceremonies are taking place, school lets out for summer vacation, and for my personal family, we’re celebrating a birthday AND an anniversary all in the same month! Though our schedules can get a little hectic this month, it’s all gravy! I know that summer is well on it’s way, and that means we can finally pack up the car and head down to the surf and the sand for a little rest and relaxation before the newest member of the family gets here in early August! https://i.pinimg.com/236x/e6/1c/2d/e61c2d3c638167b21df2778fb5550197--thirty-one-party-thirty-one-bags.jpg

11. My Aldi Bags–  Yes. That’s how I refer to these suckers. GAME CHANGER. I go to Aldi every week and take these and I find an immense, unnatural sense of JOY in fitting all of my groceries into these beauties. It’s like Tetris. SOOOO SATISFYING. I use the Large Utility Totes for dry goods, and the Fresh Market Thermals and Tote-ally Thermals for frozen and cold foods. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/62/42/f8/6242f890d626fd9bd4b5e0ee013643ec--anchor-icon-news-anchor.jpg

Thirty-One has invited its distribution center workers to relocate to Dallas and continue working at the 651,000-square-foot distribution center space it is leasing in Flower Mound, a suburb of Dallas. Distribution center workers who remain in Columbus will be eligible for a severance package and outplacement services, including onsite job fairs, Monroe said.


One of our most popular items, the Large Utility Tote makes a great camping tote, sports equipment bag, picnic basket or beach/pool tote. Capable of holding heavy loads, this big tote makes the perfect storage piece or closet organizer for just about anything around the house, including toys, books, blankets, laundry, tools, seasonal clothing or shoes, holiday decorations, car care items and more. Wire support around the top allows it to keep its shape and stand up when in use, and collapse down for easy storage when not in use. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/cf/b7/c7/cfb7c79163ca1445d8d3488cba03d017.jpg
This 5-compartment, zippered wallet is absolutely perfect for the cash envelope system even though it’s commonly used to store and organize coupons. The Save Your Way Clutch by Thirty One currently comes in three different designs and only cost $30 at the time of this article! The wallet also perfectly fits the Save Your Way inserts which are which are absolutely perfect as cash envelopes since they also have a spending log on the back (with space for the date, description, cost, and balance for each purchase you buy) – I’m in love! https://i.pinimg.com/236x/a8/ec/e1/a8ece15316edb5a2e1259082fd3a1e50---bags.jpg

Along the way I started thinking I like this stuff and I want to get a bunch of it for free. And the rest is history. I now have a double hope chest JAMMED FULL of Thirty-One. It’s kind of ridiculous. AND I LOVE IT. Jimmy loves it too. He became a convert the minute he realized how much easier this stuff made our lives. We are both massive organization nerds.
This is new-ish onto the cash envelope wallet scene and quickly becoming a crowd favorite. The All About the Benjamins wallet comes in 7 colors (solid colors, no patterns). This wallet isn’t flashy and you can most likely find a color to match your purse. It has two big compartments where you can put your cash envelopes or cash dividers. At the time of this article, the wallets are $48/each. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/5c/bf/a7/5cbfa7b04dd09bd18c1b006222337a23--thirty-one-kristen.jpg
This thirty-one bag is perfect for a teacher bag! I wasn't sure how I was going to like the open top not having a zipper. I love it! It's extremely handy and has plenty of pockets and room. The side mesh pockets are a great size for any water bottle and a travel coffee mug! My laptop is easy to put in and take out along with my binder. I even throw my purse in it so that I only have one bag to carry to work. It has ample room inside and out. I couldn't be happier with the color and this purchase! Great quality bag! https://i.pinimg.com/originals/8a/82/e0/8a82e05574fe092f4827383280992cd4.jpg
This amazing tote is a little bit larger and sturdier than the iconic Large Utility Tote. The hard bottom gives it added stability and the outside pockets allow for extra storage. Something that blows my mind about this particular Thirty-One product, is that you can fit the inside with other amazing Thirty-One products, for a little added organization! You can easily fit 2 Essential Storage Totes, 3 Picnic Thermal Totes, or 3 Fold N’ Files inside of this thing. When you scroll down to take a peek at my personal Deluxe Utility Tote, you will see that I mixed and matched what’s inside, to fit my specific needs. This tote has endless uses, a wire frame, sturdy bottom, and collapses for easy storage! Seriously, what more could you ask for? https://i.pinimg.com/280x280_RS/e4/1b/d8/e41bd895cd212115db1fc97206bfacf8.jpg

She looks for wool and flax, and works with willing hands. She is like ships that trade.  She brings her food from far away. She rises while it is still night and makes food for all those in her house. She gives work for the young women to do. She gives careful thought to a field and buys it. She plants grape-vines from what she has earned.  Proverbs 31:13-16 https://i.pinimg.com/236x/53/44/2e/53442e5c43e225164ce2818de4256723--wallet-shop-my-wallet.jpg?b


I put 3-ring binders, notebooks, laptop, everything I need for school in this bag, and it holds up really well. Stitching is strong and fabric is super sturdy. The wide bottom makes it convenient for putting in lots of things. The fabric is flexible yet holds up the shape even when completely empty. I really like the fact that the bag can "stand" on its own when I put it down on the floor. The large pockets all around are so handy for organizing things. I especially like the mesh pockets on the sides, which I use to hold water bottles. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/06/ed/4f/06ed4f979849ac0e2c0328fcd5dcadf5--partyfood-fruit-skewers.jpg
The Large Utility Bag is made of durable canvas, comes in a host of fun prints, and as the website states “holds a lot” of stuff.  It’s perfect for those summer vacations and backseat floorboard needs as the dimensions are 11.75″ H x 21.5″ W x 10″ D.  In fact, we are going to be using it to store all the girls toys and activities on our trip next month.  Yes, even her travel notebook will fit in there with plenty of room. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/3c/39/99/3c399968ec279caa644608a6b1a2c104.jpg

When I found out the Deluxe Utility Tote held the Fold N’ File,as well as the Picnic Thermal, I had to have one and knew exactly what I was going to use it for. Are you ready for this? GROCERIES. Yes! If you shop at a “no bag” natural food store, like we do. A large, durable, yet stylish shopping bag is definitely in order! I can’t even get over how much this thing holds, it’s so incredible! Typically I can do a fairly large shopping trip with all my groceries fitting in my Deluxe Utility Tote, combined with the use of a Fresh Market Thermal bag for perishables. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/e9/91/39/e99139b62585bc5d40fec7f92523832a.jpg

I stopped selling Thirty-One last December after about 5 yrs. At that time, I started using my many Deluxe Utility Totes as my laundry baskets. Plastic baskets just kept breaking. Now it is SO NICE to toss a DUT over my shoulder and head upstairs to put away laundry. I anow totally obsessed with the purple they have for fall. I want everything that comes in the purple!
5. Zip-Top Organizing Utility Tote ($35)– This is my basic grab and go mom bag. I’ve used it for the gym, pool, library, and for a kiddo weekend bag. It has pockets all around the outside, zips on top, and has interior pockets too. The ZOUT is the number one teacher and nurse bag. This one is on special this month too. Spend $35 and get a ZOUT for $10. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/e5/e0/37/e5e03738929dfc65e5cb87634edba1de.jpg

I’m completely in love with mine! I haven’t given birth yet (4 more weeks!), so I’m not an expert on diaper bags but it seems like it would work better than the gerber diaper bag that I bought. The only think that the actual diaper bag has on it is the insulated section to keep bottles cool. My plan is to go with the gerber bag for a few weeks and if I don’t love it, switch them out. If you end up using it as a diaper bag, let me know how it works for you! https://i.pinimg.com/474x/e4/28/5e/e4285efe1af4260c9bd2a9da64423ad9.jpg
It was my first-ever Thirty-One Box!  What was even more exciting was opening up to find out what was inside because I HAD NO IDEA!  It was a surprise sent to me by Destiny Narloch as she wanted to share with me a product that she thought would be a great giveaway for you—my readers!  So now, are you not as excited to see what is inside too?!  I mean, I’ve always heard that Thirty-One products are amazing and their story (modeled after the Proverbs 31 woman) inspiring, but I’ve never had the opportunity to own one of their products before.  Needless to say this was a real treat!
