Thirty-One Gifts Organizing Utility Tote & Thermal Tote Giveaway!

I received 1 Organizing Utility Tote & 1 Thermal Tote.

Not only is she offering 2 Great Prizes, but as an added bonus if anyone wants to order from Thirty-One Gifts, she will give you 10% off your total order just for being a Beth Ann & Jessica's Helpful Savings Fan!

*purchase not required to enter the giveaway.

Product # 3105
Organizing Utility Tote $30.00
This versatile, spacious tote keeps your clutter organized! Great for your cleaning supplies or sporting gear, or use as an everyday tote or gym bag! Seven side pockets are perfect for shampoo, magazines, your MP3 player and water bottles. Made from extra-tough nylon with stain- and water-resistant lining. 
 Measures approx: 10.25”H x 15.5”W x 6.5”D

(personalized with "Hodgen Family" as it will be my multi-use family tote)
This past weekend the kids and I went on a road trip 2 1/2 hrs away while daddy had to work.  I brought our tote along with us for the ride.  I threw in some notebooks, color books, markers, snacks, diaper wipes, brush, Nintendo DSI's, among other things and had tons of room to spare. I happily thought to myself  wow this is so much bigger then I expected.  I was extremely impressed not only with the size but with the ease of carrying, it wasn't big and bulky, and the bag itself didn't fold in.  

Looking for an easy place to store, clip, and go with your coupons?
The Organizing Utility Tote has got you covered, Personalized and all!

Offered in a wide varity of designs to suit you and your needs!

31 everyday uses with the Organizing Utility Tote

The Next Item I was offered is the Thermal Tote.
Product # 3000
Thermal Tote $18.00
A classic favorite! It’s great for taking lunch on the go. Whether you need to keep your food cool or warm, it does the job. Great for school or work lunch, or for taking to a ballgame. Also great as a baby bag to keep bottles cold. Measures approx: 9.5”H x 14”W x 4.5”D
The Thermal Tote, is great for everyday lunches at work, school, or long drives.  I was able to fit 7 bottles of water, or 4 cans of pop with 2 bottles water and string cheese. The options are endless with what you can fit in side.  It is Thermal for a reason and as you see in the picture above it is completely lined on the inside to keep things cold!  If your a Breast Feeding Mom, think of the great storage for your breast milk on the go.  Baby going to daycare, grandmas, on a long road trip.  No problem with the Thermal Tote you can pump and store the milk safely in the Thermal Tote.   Is your husband going on a fishing trip for the day, with the thermal tote he wont have to carry a big, bulk, heavy cooler with him just to have a cold drink.  Going to a Friday night football game and don't want to pay the expensive prices, bring some soda and snacks with you in your Thermal Tote.

The Thermal Tote is also available in variety of designs to suit your needs.

Squash and chicken bake = So tasty!

With my pickings today, I decided to make something with chicken that was easy and cheap.

Chicken breast on sale this week at Fareway for $1.69 a pound!

I used 1 tbs olive oil as a base (I haven't used this pan before and didn't want the chicken to burn)
-2 full chicken breasts
-3 squash sliced
-1/2 onion
-1 bell pepper, chopped
-Italian seasoning (about 1 tbs)
-salt and pepper
-topped off with some Parmesan

Bake at 450 degrees for 30 minutes and then enjoy!
Because all of the veggies (except the onion) were free out of the garden, this meal only cost about $4.  Plus, it's a healthy meal with each serving only being around 350 calories. Pin It
