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!
