Diaper Bag Alternatives

I have several friends who have just recently had babies or are expecting.  And one question that I'm asked allot at my 31 shows, is whether or not we have a diaper bag.  All of 31's bags are so versatile that we don't have just one bag we call a Diaper Bag.  There are several options available that would work great AND look so cute!  And all can be personalized with a name or monogram.

Get creative and choose what would work best for you.  I was the diaper bag queen when I had babies!  I was always on the search for that PERFECT diaper bag and I don't know that I ever found it.  If only I had known about thirty-one gifts back then!  I wanted something classic yet functional, stylish and pretty but not cute.  Here are some of our bags that make GREAT diaper bags!

The Retro Metro Bag - this is for the hip Mom on the go!  Has 2 outside pockets that work great for sippy cups or bottles.  And when you aren't using this bag as a diaper bag, you've got a very stylish purse!
 The Cindy Tote - this is for the new Mom's who carry everything.  This bag is roomy enough for all your baby essentials plus a change of clothes, blanket, snacks and some personal items for you!  After babies, this is the perfect overnight bag!
 The Medium Purse - the pictures or the catalogs do not do this bag justice.  It is much larger than it appears and this is probably the PERFECT diaper bag.  It has pockets on the outside, pockets on the inside and so roomy but not yet as large as the Cindy Tote.  Throw it over your shoulder and you are ready to go.  After babies, carry this bag as a stylish purse or even a laptop case!
The Organizing Utility Tote - this is one of the most functional bags with pockets everywhere!  You can always have everything handy with this bag.  After babies you can pretty much use it for whatever you want.
And don't forget one of our thermal coolers to keep those bottles of milk and formula cold.  This is the regular size thermal tote shown with the Organizing Utility Tote.
Have a 2 story house and don't always want to go upstairs to change diapers?  Keep a stash of diapers, wipes, and necessities close at hand in one of our All-in-One Organizers.

Let me know if I can help you with any of your baby shopping needs!

February Special

Get 31% off any item after a $31 purchase for the month of February! And you can do this for EVERY  $31 you spend.  So if you spend $62, you can get 2 items at 31% off and so on!  To view our NEW catalog and place an order, click here.  When selecting your 31% off item select item number with an "S" or add an "S" to the end of the item number if you are typing in the item number yourself. Email mail any question 

Happy Shopping!

Thermal Tote Sale Extended - One Day Only!

We experienced such a high volume with the last day of our Thermal Tote Sale that the phone system and computer servers experienced an outage from approximately 10:00-11:00 p.m. EST last night.  Due to these system issues Fall/Winter products and January Customer & Hostess Specials have been extended through today, February 1st at 6 p.m. eastern time.  Thirty-One Gifts is such an awesome company!  They want to make sure our customers are happy and satisfied so they have extended the thermal tote sale so that everyone who wants to can get their orders in.

The 2011 Spring/Summer Products and February specials will not be activated until 6 p.m. eastern time on 2/1/11. 

Thank you so much for your support and understanding.

2010 Retired Products and Change to Thermal Tote Event Order Date

With changes of seasons comes new catalogs with new product.  That also means that some current products and patterns/fabrics will be discontinued.  The 2010 Retired Products list just came out.  There are 6 pages and here is the key: Items crossed through in RED = these items are no longer available to order at all. We have depleted our stock. Items highlighted in YELLOW = Low inventory; use caution when ordering. If you are interested in any of these items you may want to order NOW as the inventory is about to be depleted. If you order one of these items at a party, you may want to pick a second choice in case availability changes before the party is submitted. Low inventory items can change to red status (out of stock) at any time. Items highlighted in GREEN = Items are in stock with quantities expected to last through the end of the catalog on January 31, 2011. Items on the Shopping Guide with no color-coding are returning to the 2011 Spring/Summer Catalog.

In a previous post, I stated that I would be placing an order for the Thermal Tote event on January 15th. I have decided to move this order submission up to accommodate those customers wishing to order some of the discontinued items in case inventory starts to run low.  I will now be submitting this party on Sunday, January 9th in the afternoon so if you wish to order ANY Thirty-One products regardless whether they are the thermal tote sale or on the retired product list and save on shipping, please place your order by the morning of January 9th.  You can go online to and shop on the event Thermal Tote Sale or you may call or email me your order.  Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time of transition.
