Thirty-One Gifts GIVEAWAY

How can you simplify your summer with a bag?  You need to check out Thirty-One Gifts and all their fabulous organizing products.  I have only had my Thirty-One products for a short while now, but have quickly fallen in love with their versatility, functionality . . . of course, how cute they look!

Several of my family members have the Large Utility Tote and use it as their pool bag.  And I will admit, it looks super handy and spacious for those long days at the pool (remember how I want to get pruny at the pool this summer).  Another friend keeps it in the back of her mini-van and stores all her family’s athletic gear in it.  So many options!

And guess what?  One lucky winner will receive not only a Large Utility Tote in the Minty Chip pattern, but also the accompanying brown Top-a-Tote (only available in June), an Awesome Blossom Key Fob and an Awesome Blossom Nail File.  Shipping is included, making this a $60 value!

How would you use the Large Utility Tote?  Watch this 37 second video and check out some ideas.

But that’s not all!  Mary Hipp, a Thirty-One Gifts Consultant, is offering 10% off any “Celebrate Every Day With Me” order placed by 6/30/12.  In addition, don’t miss June’s monthly special:  When you spend $35, you can get a Large Utility Tote and Top-A-Tote for only $10 more.  With this special deal and the discount, you could walk away with a lot of products!
