Living in My Car

Do you feel like you live in your car?

I sure do. ย Just this week alone, between chauffeuring to and from school and a variety of kid-activities, I am recruiting teams for the Arthritis Foundation’s Jingle Bell Run, making marketing visits to physicians offices for my PainCare of San Diego job, organizing Damsel in Defense parties, soliciting donations for our school sock hop, working with my daughter on her Girl Scout fundraiser and, of course, promoting the 2014 Mom’s Guide to San Diego.

So I was thrilled when Cindy Harris with Thirty-One Gifts contacted me about reviewing the company’s Organizing Utility Tote.

This is how mine is being used…

It feels good to have everything I’m working on at my finger tips as I’m out and about.

You probably already know about Thirty-One Gifts, a direct-sales company featuring quality made personalized luggage, totes, organizational tools and more. ย My own daughter has carried a Thirty-One thermal lunch bag to school for more than 3 years, and it’s still in great condition.

Thanks to Cindy, who says that she completely replaced a teacher’s salary with her work-from-home, Thirty-One job, one lucky mom’s guide reader is also going to enjoy the gift of organization by winning her own utility tote. For your chance to win, simply comment here on how you would use yours.

Good luck! ย Oh, and if you want to buy any Girl Scout nuts, walk with my Jingle Bell Run team, host a Damsel in Defense party for your friends, need relief from chronic pain or have an item to donate to a school fundraiser, be sure to let me know. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I would use mine to hold wipes for on the go meal messes on the outside. Books and whiteboards for car rides, dry erase markers in the mesh holders. I’d also keep a pair of flip flops for each of my kids, no more forgetting our shoes at home. Yes, been there, done that.

  3. Cat says:

    I’d use it as a carry-all between the house and the car to carry everything from library books to gym stuff, my Nook and reusable grocery bags to school stuff for the kids. Looks really useful, like Thomas the train! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I would use it in the car to collect all of the various things I use each day with a 3 and 1 year old–sweatshirts, snacks, diapers, wipes, toys, books, and the kitchen sink!

    Love Thirty-one! I think I would use it for organizing my son’s art stuff ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s currently just piled up on his little table. This would be great to not only organize and CONTAIN it, but it would make it super easy to move around!

    I have one…LOVE IT and need another one! Soccer cleats, snacks, water bottles and sunscreen leaves no room for ballet shoes, tights and poofy hair ties! Must have one per client, er – CHILD! ๐Ÿ˜‰
