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.
10. Lunch Bags– Okay. I’m cheating here. This isn’t just one bag. BUTTT we love our thermals for school lunches. Harper has the Lunch Break, Sadie has the Going Places (she loves it b/c she says it looks like a purse)  , and Cate and Lucy have a Go-To Thermal. The Go-To is machine washable and Jimmy even carries one to work. In, ahem, masculine gray. These suckers are durable and cute and keep the girls’ food cold. We are all obsessed.

I noticed in the catalog that you could fit files in the zipper pouch (it was a lot bigger than the pencil pouch I was picturing), this made me rethink my current “office in a bag” for finances. I placed three files in the zipper pouch: “To File”, “To Handle”, and “Stamps and Envelopes”, then I placed my check book, my budget notebook and my extended budget (which is in a cardboard file) inside the pouch. I am so excited about this set up! It reduced weight and bulk and secures the files while letting them remain upright. It's a huge benefit to me to have all of our budgeting tools with me at all times. I can pay bills, track purchases and adjust the budget in little breaks throughout the day omitting the need for a set time, that I sit down and balance the budget.

I started using Thirty-One throughout our time in Italy.  I used the bags to keep our small apartment organized and I especially used them when we traveled. I quickly realized that a Large Utility Tote was indispensable when we traveled. I used one in the back of the van for snacks, drinks, trash bags, and food (since we exclusively stayed in Airbnb homes).  I realized that using multiple Zipper Pouches was a more efficient idea than having Ziplocs in my mom bag.

Love that I can work from home with a company that takes care and is super supportive of their consultants! Yes we make 25% commission and we get rewards and incentives on top of our pay! I was not brain washed I signed up without talking to anyone about signing up. I don't attend the meetings. I do my own thing and it works :) If I have questions along the way the consultant support is always there to answer any of my questions. I bring home good money but you have to put the work in, just like any other job. My husband was not a fan at first when I signed up but sense I have been doing this he has became more supportive cause he has seen the benefits. This company has helped me in alot of ways. I have so much more confidence in my self and it has helped me make new friend ships :)

Assign each family member a color and use colored ultra fine sharpies or fine tip gel pens to jot down appointments and activities for each person in their specific color. This will help you see at a glance how many different directions you are going that day, which also helps you determine when you need to stop scheduling. You can also use colored washi tape for this purpose.
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.
