  1. Ooooh … I love 31! I would love to use this tote for my “Sunday Bag” … carrying Bibles and notebooks and choir music and lip gloss and my notes for teaching Sunday school and … all that “stuff” that ends up having to go with me to church! Sure would be nice to have a tote to stash things as I remember them through the week and then be able to just pick up the bag and go on Sunday mornings!!

  2. Traci! Thanks so very much for this wonderful giveaway opportunity! Oh – there are so many life “categories” I could use this organizer tote to enhance! I may use it for a car tote or a craft tote or a gift tote – or all of these!

  3. Ohhh–I think I would use it for scrapbooking. I’m trying to organize my projects to be portable to take to work so I can get some cards done during my lunch break.

    By the way, I’m glad I discovered your blog from this giveaway on Twitter! Love your title and tag line, and I’m excited to explore more and keep reading!

  4. What nice items and such a generous giveaway! I would use the bag for going on my geneaology trips with my girlfriends. It would help keep me organized at the gen. libraries!

  5. Oh the uses are so many! Scrapbooking stuff…church stuff…water park stuff. How fun it would be to figure it how to use it! So cute.

  6. I would use this beautiful tote for my Sunday bag. I need a big bag that will hold all of my things that I might need while I’m at church.

  7. I would use it as my “library” bag. I take my kiddos to the library a lot and we always come back with loads of books and sometimes activities. This would be great to carry the books back and forth! I LOVE the polka dot design – too cute!

  8. That organizer would be PERFECT for knitting projects – the little pockets for tape measure, and extra needles, stitch markers…

  9. Oh….I’ve been wanting to get something to carry my Silhouette and paper supplies-this looks like it would be just the thing! Thanks for offering this giveaway! :)

  10. Love these — especially the pockets…. I would use mine for everyday, dragging my “stuff” to work and back.. Pam

  11. What a cute tote! I’m sure I would use it to tote all the things that I usually end up taking to church! It seems Mom usually ends up carrying something for somebody else – so this would be a huge help!

  12. I’d use it for bills/supplies and all the various paperwork that otherwise piles up on my kitchen counter. I think it would also be super useful for long car trips to keep my boys’ various devices/chargers/etc organized!

  13. I would probably use this bag for everything! A purse, a diaper bag, a library bag, and to take my current project sewing projects to my parents house to work on. It is such a cute bag that I would have to take it everywhere to show it off:)

  14. I would definately use it for all of my art supplies. I like to draw and I usually do it from a board and carry my supplies to my location. This would definately get all my things in the right spot!

  15. Oh I love it! And I love the story behind the company name…that is just great. The bag is adorable! I would definitely use it to carry my crafty suppiles to work. Now that I am a working mother I have to squeese in my creative time whenever possible so I tend to spend my lunch hours scrapbooking or crafting.

  16. I would either use the adorable tote for diapers/wipes for an alternate baby changing station or use it for a church-goody bag for my kids. So cute!

  17. I love this bag, its so cute. I would definitely use it for when I attend my meetings. I am on the committee for Relay for life-American Cancer Sociey and I always have a ton of info that I need to bring to the meetings to pass out. This bag would be perfect for that.

  18. Thanks for the great giveaway. I love 31’s products! I would use the tote to carry all of my daughters ice skating “stuff”. When we travel, I am always looking for more space to put her stuff in. This will be perfect! Thanks!

  19. I love these totes!! I would use mine on client consultations to hold my tape measure, paint samples, etc
    This would give a great professional organized look!!

  20. i’d love to have this tote for my crafting small group i am leading this semester!! would be so handy for carrying my craft supplies!!

  22. I love this company! I would use this tote for the kids stuff, or church/meetings, etc. Thanks for hosting this!

  23. Such a great company! I would use the awesome tote as a car organizer. With a new baby things get lost easily and this would certainly help!

  24. Great for the pool – to keep thngs for 3 kids in one place. Of couse, as cold as it is, I can only wish for pool days!

  25. I would love this to take everywhere! My 6 year old has diabetes and we need to bring all the supplies with us plus my 4 other children. I love this idea!

    Thank you for the chance to win!


  26. Wow! This would be great for the ballpark! The snacks, the sunscreen, the sunglasses, the Purell!, the crayons & toys to entertain the 4yr old while we watch her 15 yr old brother play ball! It’s hectic, but still can’t wait for the first pitch!

  27. I’d give to our housekeeper/friend who helps me out so much 2 days a week. I would have an extremely difficult time getting by in Ukraine without her. She and her husband have a conference/retreat type center on their property where adoptive parents stay, missionaries gather, and a small home church meets. She could most certainly use this bag to tote things from one building to the next.

  28. What a wonderful giveaway! I love Thirty One!
    My daughter has just started working with her Golden Retriever to show in AKC Junior Dog Shows. I’ve been looking for a bag to carry all the “stuff” you need! This looks like a perfectly adorable bag with lots of neat compartments to keep things easy to find! She would love, love, love this!

  29. How fun! I think I would use it for my Sunday bag. My husband and I teach the 5-year-olds in primary. We have to bring crayons, glue sticks, paper, snacks, our scriptures, lesson manuals, plus diaper bag stuff for our baby. So something like this looks like it would fit everything nicely!

  30. I would use the tote for my office files since I do most of the mail sorting in the living room (and not my home office).

  31. It’s my dirty little secret……I’m addicted to tote bags!!!! What wouldn’t I use this great tote for? I would use it for the gym, beach, picnic’s @ Mt. Charleston, or maybe as a gift for a new mother.

  32. I would use this utility tote to travel with my scrapbook supplies or beach goodies! So cute!

    great giveaway!!!! I so hope I win!!!!

  35. I love the Paparazzi Dot!!! I’ve just started taking a Yogalates class & this bag would be perfect to take with me! The side pockets would be perfect for my keys, phone & a bottle of water!

  36. Hiya! It’s Becky from I Burned the Brownies. I LOOOOVE thirty-one. I will soon be playing host for a thirty-one party and I’m so super excited! I have the organizing utility tote in BOHO Patchwork Paisley and let me tell you, it is one of my favorite bags ever! It is a diaper bag, work tote, gym bag, purse, magazine tote, laptop bag, snack tote for picnics…..I could go on and on!!! I love the Paparrazi Dot print on that bag, too. That would make an excellent addition to my growing addiction. Heehee

  37. What a wonderful give away! I would use this tote to bring my card making supplies when my sisters and friends get together to make cards…

I know I’m having a boy, but that doesn’t mean I’m destined to carry an ugly bag! Or I could use it for a grocery tote. Germans don’t give you bags (or bag your groceries) and I’m forever needing a bag for groceries. I have several, but they’re not pretty.

  46. I just love 31! The polka dot tote bag is adorable and would come in handy for a number of things…I would probably use it either for a “Mom’s Sunday Bag” or an events bag for loading up to go to the beach or picnic or…or…or… :)
