On those days when I feel completely overwhelmed, I take a deep breath and allow this thought to run through my head: One day, much sooner than I expect, the noise and chaos will come to an end. And I know, without a doubt, that I will be wishing it all back. Every single crazy moment!
That being said, staying calm and organized amidst the chaos is a tough job. I am always on the lookout for products that keep my life organized and work for my busy lifestyle!
When Marci, a very sweet reader, contacted me about a review/giveaway opportunity for Thirty-One, I jumped at the chance! One of my most favorite items ever is a Thirty-One key fob that fits perfectly around my wrist. I had a few other small items from Thirty-One in my home and I knew of the utility totes, but I didn't really have any idea about all the other incredible items they offer!
Marci suggested a few items for me to consider: the soft utility tote (with drawstrings to make it different sizes), the around the clock thermal, and the fresh market thermal. I loved everything she suggested (and so much more like the awesome Oh-Snap Pocket)!
It was a difficult decision, but I finally chose the Zip-Top Organizing Utility Tote in Preppy Pop. I thought it would be perfect for all our outings and errands! Marci had the tote personalized with my name and threw in a matching Hang-It-Up Key Fob to replace my beloved, but very worn key fob.
The Zip-Top Organizing Utility Tote did NOT disappoint! Not only is the bag very durable, but the pattern is fun and the size is perfect. I like how it zips closed to protect the items inside the bag and I absolutely love the 7 roomy pockets on the outside of the bag. We never have enough pockets to hold all of our drinks, and with this bag, we do!
The Zip-Top Organizing Utility Tote is absolutely perfect for moms on the go! (But not just for moms. I would have loved one of these during my musical theater years!)
I have to mention this super awesome Hang-It-Up Key Fob, too. It is even better than my old key fob from Thirty-One. It still loops perfectly around my wrist, but it has a nifty little loop on one end so I can hang it up at home AND an even niftier little hook on the other end so I can hook it onto my tote straps, purse straps, or even my stroller!!! NO MORE LOST KEYS! Plus, it's only $5...such a great gift idea for family and friends!
As soon as I received the Zip-Top Utility Tote, I packed it up for our weekly outings!
Here's what I keep in my now favorite tote:
- Diapers, Wipes and a Changing Pad (Diaper Strap and Pad from Anchored Arrow Co)
- Mini First Aid Kit
- Lip Balm (absolutely essential for my well being)
- Hair Elastics
- Extra Bottle of Water
- Reusable Water Bottle (me)
- Take and Toss Straw Cup for Liam
- Reusable Water Pouches for Dylan, Lexie and Lily
- Playpack, Notebook and Pen
- Sidewalk Chalk
Thanks to the Zip-Top Utility Tote from Thirty-One, my family is always ready for an adventure!
