Thirty-One Back to School Organizing Giveaway (3 Winners!)

thirty-one bags giveaway pin

This is my friend Nicole.  We’ve never met in real life.  We met on a day that was a total ‘God moment’ for me.  Ever have those?

thirty one bags consultant

I had been blogging for just a few months and I was discouraged.  I thought I’d write my first post and I’d automatically turn into The Pioneer Woman!  Ha.  I had no clue how much work blogging was.  However, on this particular day, I got an email.  I NEVER got emails at this point.  It was from Nicole.  She lived in California, she said, and had 3 boys–which is what I had at the time.  She wrote out her life’s story and how much we were alike.  How she’d be venturing into homeschooling.  She was scared.  Yet, when she read my blog, she felt less alone.

At that moment, I knew I could care less about being Ree Drummond.  If I could touch a life and encourage a friend, even if it was only ever Nicole, I’d keep blogging.  I remember calling my BFF Aimee and crying on the phone about this email I had gotten from a reader.  I was SO EXCITED.

We’ve stayed in touch via Facebook ever since.  Lifelong friends for sure.  Homeschooling moms ‘get’ each other like that.  Boys moms do too.

Anyway, Nicole is a Thrity-One bags consultant and we wanted to bless some awesome kick-butt moms out there who are getting back in the groove of school days.  Whether you homeschool or not, these bags are so awesome.

Here’s how I have been using these three products in our home.


I use my Fold and File to organize my iPads and create a charging spot for them.


The charger cords are plugged in every night.


I keep stickers paper clipped on the side of the file to award extra iPad time to the boys when we feel the need.


The Hang Up Home Organizer is great for organizing all my We Choose Virtues curriculum! I have a review and giveaway coming soon!


I am using my PINK Zip Top Utility Tote for our new little girl on the way.
