Thirty-One Uses for the Organizing Utility Tote and a Hands-on Product Review by The Dirty Shirt

5 Jul

The Dirty Shirt Hands On Product ReviewsA few weeks ago, I sent Jennifer, the owner/editor of The Dirty Shirt, various Thirty-One Gifts products and asked her to do a thorough, hands-on review of each one. If you don’t already follow The Dirty Shirt’s blog, Jennifer is a mom-approved Nielsen Power 50 Mom providing hands-on product reviews for some major national brands. I’m honored that she has agreed to review my Thirty-One Gifts products!

Her first review is of the Organizing Utility Tote.

Jennifer of The Dirty Shirt says,

This tote is perfect for taking just about anything on the go with you. From toting craft supplies and kids toys to theme park needs this tote holds everything. I like it because it is compartmentalized which allows me to put drink containers for my kids on the outside instead of the inside where everything can get wet if I had a spill. Now I can carry my toddlers needs everywhere I go. I don’t feel I need a full blown diaper bag anymore so this Organizing Utility Tote is perfect for what I need!”
