Thirty-One Review and Giveaway

Hey, friends!  Raise your hand if you’d love to be more organized!  Ooh, ooh, me ME!  One of the areas in our home that drives me Crazy with a capital C is the kitchen.  It’s the first room you enter when you walk in the front door, which means it’s also become a catch-all.  Mail, coupons, shopping lists, reminder notes, keys, receipts…you name it, it ends up on the kitchen counter.  Not cool.  What to do?  Enter my friend Anne, who happens to be a consultant for Thirty-One.  
I have three Thirty-One bags already; two are the Organizing Utility Tote {I bought myself one and received one as a birthday gift}, and one is the Large Utility Tote, which I got when it was the $10 special of the month last summer!  But I didn’t realize that besides their great bags, Thirty-One also has these Hang Up Family Organizers!  They come with five pockets that are just right for all the random things that end up on my counter.  

They’re available in black, grey, and turquoise…guess which one I picked.  You can even get one line of personalization on it, up to 12 characters. Of course “one artsy mama” is 14.  Waah.
Anyway, it arrived, and I immediately started thinking about what to put in each pocket.  I decided that the most common things that end up cluttering the counters fall into one of these categories: coupons, mail, banking {checks, deposit slips, receipts, etc}., Little Crafter’s random things, and miscellaneous things that don’t have a good place to belong yet.  So, my next step was to put Cammie to work.

With “Cammie’s” help, I cut out the labels for each pocket from adhesive vinyl, then used transfer tape to line them upon the organizer.  Hubby hung it up for me and it didn’t take long to start filling it up.

A magazine from my alma mater went in miscellaneous until I can read it.  LC’s karate homework sheets went in his pocket {which, by the way, he can reach all by himself}, a check and deposit slip went in the banking pocket, and a few other things found their way to new homes.  I am absolutely loving it!  I don’t have clutter all over the counters anymore, and I know where to find important things when I need them.

Do you need a little organization in your life?  It just may be your lucky day!  Anne is generously giving away a hang-up organizer to one lucky winner!  You can choose from one just like mine but in Grey Pin Dots, embroidered with “Family Plan,” or the Room Organizer in either Black Cross Pop or Grey Pin Dots.

Rafflecopter will walk you through the entry process; good luck!

    I love ALL thirty-one products, but probably my favorite item is the thermal totes. I have one I use almost every day to take to work & have 2 or three others that I use whenever I need them. :-)

    I need the large utility tote for the back of the van. It would be perfect for the kids’ sports and park stuff to tote it to the field and allow me to very easily empty the back of the van when it’s shopping time.

    Great stuff! I really like the room organizers, and would be hard pressed to choose between them. I also like that large utility tote. How nice that would be for organizing the trunk! Thanks to you both for this giveaway!
