I have a bit of an addiction. Er, and obsession. Okay fine, I may need an intervention.
See, I have this thing for bags. And totes. And lunch boxes. And thermals and purses and canvas storage containers and all things pretty with good colors and designs and a purpose.
Yes. An intervention probably would have been best. Key: would have. But some things I just can’t…..er….don’t want to, give up. Organizational adorableness? Well it’s one of those things.
So if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em, right? And at least get a discount!
So I did!
See, I love 31 Things. I had never heard of it until three years ago when I went to a party a friend of mine was hosting. And I fell in love. (see above) Since then I have given them as gifts, used them for promotion of my book, swapped out my laptop in the ubber adorable purse for baby wipes and diapers.
I. Love. Them.
And they do good things. Which makes me even more happy. The U R U collection is all about empowering girls and women. Since 2012, the U R U collection has contributed to donations of over $350,000 to charities that work with women and girls. Yeah, I know. Awesome. Then there’s the Thirty-One Gives Cares Ribbons, which allow you to spread the word about the cause you’re most passionate about. Oh, and then portions of the sales go to those same women and girls charities we talked about. Two birds. One stone. And then there’s the camp they sponsor for
Middle School girls. Oh, and don’t forget about the Ronald McDonald House! There’s a thermal lunch tote specially designed for this haven for families, and of course, portions of the moohlah from the sales goes straight to helping families in their home away from home.
Why 31? Well it takes after Proverbs 31.
