At the end of the school year, I finally decided to retire my old-$15-Walmart bag (see it here) and bought my very first Thirty-One tote. Oh. My. Goodness. I absolutely love it. I received it the night before the last day of school, so I haven't really used it much yet. However, I can tell that this will be a beautiful relationship.
I was a bit cautious about buying this bag. I have a hard time buying something online when I haven't seen it in person first and I thought it was a tad expensive. After all, I only spent $15 on my last bag and it lasted a few years.
In June, I went to a conference and more than half the teachers there had the Thirty-One Deluxe Utility Tote. I fell in love with it right away and just had to order one for myself. I also bought two pockets for each side of my bag and had one embroidered with my name (that cute little teacher pin was a birthday gift from my daughter!). The best part with these pockets is that they can easily be removed! I use one as a pencial case and the other for all of my little electronic devices and USB sticks. The final touch is the insert that helps me keep everything organized in there. Love! I might have to buy more than one bag! Shhhhh....don't tell my hubby!
