Get Organized ~ Giveaway

If your New Year’s resolution had anything to do with getting more organized, then you need to check out Thirty-One Gifts. With bags and totes for every occasion (that are also super cute), you can get the clutter up off the floor and organize your life. (Or at least you can get the tools to do so, it’s still up to you to put the stuff away…)

I partnered with a Thirty-One Gifts rep, Carolyn, in December to host a couple of giveaways and my very first virtual party – it was all very exciting. I have been totally loving my new Thirty-One items, and now that the holiday rush is over I thought it was the perfect time to giveaway one more Thirty One tote and tell you about how you can host your own virtual (or in-person) party.

I’ve never hosted a virtual (or in-person) product party before, so this was a new experience for me, and thanks to Carolyn it was easy and fun. She is totally low key – read, not high pressure – and very paitent. I think I spent an hour + on the phone with her placing my order, changing it over and over as I couldn’t make up my mind! She pretty much rocks, and once you get your hands on her products you realize that they sell themselves.

The Organzing Utility Tote is super versatile. Large enough to hold file folders, this tote offers a cute way to organize your office. But it also makes a great caddy for cleaning products, a mobile changing station or a crafting caddy. With exterior pockets and long handles, it can even be used as an every-day tote. In fact, the most difficult thing is deciding what to use this tote for. I got one in brown with my initials embroidered in raspberry thread, and it is so cute! It is currently being used to keep my blog stuff together, instead of spread all over the house.

As with all Thirty-One products, this tote is reasonably priced. At just $22 for the tote ($6 for embroidery) it is an affordable gift for yourself or a friend.

Like other product parties, when you host a party you receive rewards in the form of credit and discounted products for yourself. Which makes the party very exciting for the hostess and allows the hostess to stock up on gifts for others.

Another great thing about Thirty-One Gifts are the monthly specials.

January’s Annual Thermal Tote Sale: Customers can get the small lunch-size thermal tote for $8 (valued at $12.50) and the slightly larger thermal tote for $10 (valued at $14), and embroidery on these two items is ONLY $1.50 (regularly $6). That’s about 45% off when personalized. There is no minimum purchase, and no limit on the number they can purchase at that price. Sale ends January 31. These items won’t be available again at this price until next year. PLUS!!!! Carolyn is offering an ADDITIONAL LIMITED-TIME OFFER: Submit an order of 10 totes and get one FREE. Collect orders from friends & family or purchase 10 to stock up on gifts for the year. This offer is NOT available online, if you want to take advantage of the extra offer, email Carolyn directly at [email protected] by January 25.

Coming in February, Thirty-One will launch it’s Spring catalog with a 31% off Sale. Customers who spend $31 will receive 31% off any one item. This offer is good for every $31 they spend. So, if you spend $62, you can get 31% off any two items, etc.

Buy it – If you are interested in purchasing something from Thirty-One, hosting a party or just learning more, check out Carolyn’s website and sign up for her e-newsletter for monthly specials and more.
