I came across your article today and I would like to know if you personlly have used both versions, the cheap and Thirty One? I’ve been with the company 6 years now and have to say every penny I’ve spent has been worth it. I still have the first two Large a Utility Totes I bought 6 years ago and use them. Just because it’s cheaper that doesn’t mean it is better. Thirty Ones products actually hold up pretty well. I admit like any other company we do have some problems from time to time but they are good at helping customers fix these issues. You have a 90 day warrrenty and sometimes even after that they help.
Brand new never used super cute tote from thirty one. This is perfect for lunches or a work bag or to leave in the car with stuff in it. It has a pocket on each end with mesh lining and one side does not have any pockets and the other side has for small pockets like for pens or readers and then a main compartment as well. Gorgeous colors. Smoke-free home
I don't think I could live without all my thirty-one bags! I have a big weekender bag that works perfectly for a carry-on bag or quick weekend away with my hubs. I have a duffel bag that holds a change of clothes if I have somewhere to go right after work. The gym bag is amazing because it has a compartment in the bottom for my sneakers! I swear by the tons of funds wallet because if you put on the purse strap, it's the absolute most perfect small crossbody. I'm waiting on the new lakeside tote to arrive. Our vacation to Isle of Palms, SC is in a month and a half, and I can't wait to use it as my beach bag. If you don't own a thirty-one bag yet, get one! They're a bit on the expensive side, but absolutely worth every penny. So many options for so many different uses!
I have 4 products that I have used intermittently. By no means were they used every day and by no means were they harshly used. One product was barely used. I now have 2 out of 4 products that are failing. The inside plasticy lining of my very small utility bag is cracking and disintegrating. Obviously a poor plastic material that does not hold up. Which is fine, then don't charge me a fortune if it is going to fall apart. I have an organizing tote with zipper, hardly used. Used it the most for one week at the beach. The entire seam has separated leaving a gapping hole in the bottom. The bag is useless now. Contacted customer service and was told only 90 days. Your products should be expected to hold up more than 90 days, especially for the price. Will not buy again. I have had LLBEAN and Lands End bags warrantied FOREVER and I have used Vera Bradley purses and bags, every single day for years with only wearing of the material noticed on the handle. Mind you, I said "wearing down" not completely falling apart or broken! This company is a cheap, trendy home party that makes very poor quality products that are sold at high prices so all the people in the chain can get their profit. Tupperware has full lifetime replacement for free!!!
Aubrey – I have two 31 Utility Totes, two bags from Amazon and one from Walmart. The bags from Amazon are cheaper than 31 bags but are every bit as good in terms of quality. Further, the Walmart bag cost the least but, in my opinion, is the best bag. The only downside is there aren’t many fabric choices. Also, I had another 31 bag that I bought as a work bag, it was expensive and it fell apart. I do like the 31 bags (I think the fabric is pretty) but I would rather save money.
I purchased a lunch thermal tote (playful parade pattern) and a zip-top organzing utility tote. I use the utility tote for carrying files and my laptop when I work in schools, but I use my lunch bag all the time! I get lots of compliments on it - instead of having my initials which is trendy right now, I got my name embroidered on it in Hot Pink. It's perfect for me... professional but fun. At first I thought it was too big, but now I love the size. I can carry lunch, dinner, and snacks in it and everything stays pretty cold because it's thermal. Just Awesome!

This is another great plugin from HorNet!!! I tried it today and I was very surprised by its very useful function… The automatic eq function you can set and then turn it off and set your eq to taste further…But…HorNet did it again: Making outstanding plugins for an outstanding low price…Thanks a lot HorNet!! Cheers from The Netherlands, Jeroen Simons, Independent/ ex- Epica.
Monica and I used to teach together years ago so I was delighted that she wanted to become one of our sponsors. I first became acquainted with this company when I attended a Thirty-One party hosted by someone at our church. I was impressed with the quality of the products and bought the grandgirls the cutest cinch bags to put all their gear in when they go to the pool or the beach.
I purchased a now discontinued bag only to have the nylon lining pull away from the zipper after only a few months. I later purchased the cross body bag to have the lining rip out in the same place in even less time. I did get the bag replaced to have the nylon lining rip out once again after less than 2 months. Obviously, the nylon lining is extremely cheap and continuing to replace the bag is not going to solve the issue.
I am very pleased with the studio thirty-one clutch! This particular one is a Hostess Exclusive- but the classic and modern body style studio 31 purses can be purchased by anyone and are the same concept. Option of length, texture, & color of your purse strap, the flap, and body style lets you be your own designer! The quality is comparable to that of a coach or vera bradely yet not as large of a price tag. I personally prefer the simple yet classic elegance of a script or swirl monogram embroidery. I would absolutely reccomend to family & friends!

I just bought a few new things from Thirty-One, and so far am very pleased with my purchases! The first thing I bought was a medium tote. It is well made, has a gorgeous pattern, and works great for holding sweaters in my closet! It can also hold a LOT of stuff if you needed to transport snacks, craft supplies, etc! The second thing I bought was the Thermal Tote in the cute Forest Friends pattern! I was a little worried this would be a little too small to fit a lot in it, but it has a ton of room to bring my lunch to work! I love it and it is so cute! I definitely recommend their products. Some of the totes can get a little expensive but sometimes they have sales or deals! 
Though the faith-based theme and mottos are subtle, many consultants enjoy working with a home party sales company that shares their values. Thirty One Gifts supports women in their efforts to bring prosperity to their households. Through the Thirty One Gives charity branch of the organization, the company also gives back to their local Ohio community through donations, building houses for the needy, product donations and more. This commitment to improving the quality of life for those less fortunate falls in line with the sentiments expressed in proverb Thirty One, bolstering the strength and capability of a woman-owned company filled with motivated female consultants and employees.

I am SO glad I found your site! I like Thirty -One and have purchased a couple items from them. Although I like the items they do seem a bit flimsy for the very expensive price you pay. Also, I was never impressed with the way my shipments would arrive….the boxes would always look like they have been kicked around a warehouse a few times! I was actually even considering becoming a consultant for this company but as I said I’m so thankful to have found your page. I absolutely LOVE Amazon, it is my go to and I am going to check out some of the totes, bags, etc there. THANK YOU!!!

“We’ve had our home office and distribution center in Columbus for 10 years,” Monroe said. “Our Columbus location has served us well, and we’re proud and excited to maintain our headquarters – and 300 jobs – here. Moving the distribution center to Texas, however, puts our distribution operations closer to areas of significant growth potential for us in the southwestern U.S. and Mexico.”
I will always love 31 I love some of the prints they come out with and if you just order them as they are the prices are not to bad but if you do want their signature products with your monogram initials or whatever on them it does jump the price considerably. I don’t order as much as I did when they were new but I have to say the large totes are super handy and really last a long time they are put together well and made to last!
