Thirty-One Gifts and Moms Making Money

Look at one of my new favorites! Before Christmas (yes, friends, I am THAT far behind) Susan from Thirty-One gifts sent me this awesome thermal tote. Perfect timing as we hauled goodies from place to place for Christmas celebrations and…

ballgames. Always the ballgames! With a family of eight, we simply canNOT frequent the concession stand for supper once or twice a week. It would break the bank and ruin our health in the process. Not on my watch! And as we look forward to 6 hour track meets in the spring, I am thrilled that everything I need will fit in one stylish (not my usual!) bag!

The Fresh Market Thermal ($50) is huge!  It can hold up to two 9”x13” pans inside. (Or 9 sandwiches, a bag of snack mix, a box of granola bars, 7 water bottles, 3 sandwich bags of sliced apples, a bunch of bananas, 2 quart bags of cookies, and a handful of cheese sticks.)

I am especially smitten with the expandable sides. I could NEVER put my big round veggie tray server in any of our regular coolers, but it fits fine in this tote. Never mind the huge mess we made when a well-meaning relative grabbed the bag and carried it into the building sideways. (Note to self: invest in a rectangle veggie tray dish with lid.)

Thirty-One Gifts was recently named the fastest-growing woman-owned company in the world, and the 17th largest direct-selling organization in the world. Their products are sold through a network of more than 107,000 local sales consultants via their websites or home parties.

I know that some of you have a love/hate relationship with network marketing businesses (or maybe even a hate/hate relationship), but considering that 82% of women who make $100,000 a year work for a direct sales company, I don’t think there’s any reason to write them off. When I can support another mom and I like the product she’s promoting, I do. When I can’t or don’t want to, I don’t. Easy peasy.

I have a few different items from Thirty-One Gifts. They are all very high quality, and I’ve never met a Thirty-One Gifts representative who was anything less than kind, friendly, and helpful.

Guess what, friends? Susan has a Fresh Market Thermal ($50) for one of you! You get to pick your pattern and have it embroidered if you want. So fun! Simply leave a comment to enter. As always, any relevant comment will work, but I’d love to know how you would plan to use your tote if you win!

Giveaway ends Sunday, January 25, at 11:59 pm, CST. Winner will be randomly drawn and notified by email.

Convenience and Savings Shipped to Your Door

One of the things that I never seem to get around to writing about is how I manage this crazy family with six (6!!!) children. Mostly because I’m too busy actually managing the crazy family.

I do want to share a life saver with you, though. Shop online and have it shipped to your door.

I haven’t hauled a big box of baby diapers from the store in years. Not because we don’t go through 5,932 diapers each month.  I just don’t buy diapers at the store. I also rarely buy toilet paper at the store. I don’t buy supplements at the store. There are even some snack foods I don’t buy at the store! Mama doesn’t have much cart space or time what with all the children she’s hauling around, friends!

epantryAmazon’s Subscribe and Save has been my go-to for doorstep shopping, using Amazon.com gift cards earned with Swagbucks whenever possible. Just recently, though, my friend Crystal introduced me to ePantry. Online shopping options focused on great prices for products that we 1) use everyday and 2) are better for the environment? Awesome!

Confession: You can preach eco-friendly to me time and time again, but unless eco-friendly comes with a decent price and at least a little bit of convenience, I’m likely not buying.

If you haven’t ordered from ePantry yet, now is the time to give it a try! They are offering my readers a fantastic deal this week only: This week, Finer Things readers will receive a FREE Mrs. Meyer’s Dish Soap, a $10 credit, and FREE shipping when they register for ePantry with my referral link. (Free shipping is my love language.)

epantry1You can, of course, order anything you want, but here’s an example.

Mrs. Meyer’s Multi-Surface Cleaner- $3.69
Mrs. Meyer’s Bathroom Cleaner: $4.15
Method Body Wash- $4.99
Mrs. Meyer’s Dish Tabs- $8.31
Mrs. Meyer’s Toilet Cleaner: $4.99
Mrs. Meyer’s Glass Cleaner- $5.19
Yes To Lip Balm- $2.49
Mrs. Meyer’s Liquid Dish Soap- FREE!

With a $10 Amy’s Finer Things credit and free shipping, the total is $23.81.  That’s only $2.97/product!

Want to give ePantry a try? (Who wouldn’t?!)

1. Sign up for a new account with ePantry through this link. You’ll get a free $10 credit + ePantry is offering a free Mrs. Meyer’s dish soap with your order to everyone who signs up through my referral link! This is an exclusive offer for my readers that is only available through the end of this week.

2. Answer a few quick questions about your family and the household products you use.

Free $10 credit to ePantry

3. Once you’ve answered the questions, you’ll have the option for them to put together a box for you or you can pick your own products for your box. (Do that. ;) )

4. To get $10 off, your order needs to be at least $30 total. You can select any combination of products, so knock yourself out. Go for the best deals, or treat yourself to some pampering items that otherwise wouldn’t fit in the budget. You can order up to 4 of any one item.

5. Go to checkout, place your order, and get some household products shipped to your door at a great price!

*** Note: Just like Amazon’s Subscribe & Save program, if you want to continue receiving shipments, you can choose when you want to receive your next shipment and what you want to receive. You’ll receive an email 7 days before your next shipment is supposed to go out and you can go in and adjust your order or choose to cancel your subscription.
