In honor of the back to school frenzy, I am bringing back the outrageously popular Thirty-One Gifts giveaway! I posted a few months ago about how much I am truly madly deeply in love with my Zip-Top Organizing Utility Tote and my love has never wavered. I have used my bag more than I could ever count and it has become a staple in keeping me semi-sort of-organized. I’m a notoriously distracted soul, so I’ll take the help.
I feel like this would be the ideal bag for a Mom (or Dad) on the go. Now that school is just around the corner, we need to be far more organized and actually out the door with more than three minutes to get the kids to school. This bag is perfect for keeping our lives together.
My bag and I go everywhere together.
Full of snacks and drinks and general flotsam and jetsam that we seem to need for a one-hour trip around town to run errands.
This thing is pretty awesome. It has seven exterior pockets that constantly get filled with water bottles for teeball practice, blender bottles for the gym, my phone and keys. The material is very heavy duty and wipes clean with no problems. My favorite part of the bag is that it actually holds its shape when you set it down. It doesn’t get all floppy and sideways, knocking your water bottles over and smooshing your snacks. There is a home for EVERYTHING because it’s a known fact that you can never have too many pockets.
A good friend of mine took hers on the plane to Hawaii and she said it was perfect as a carry-on. My plan for the next bag is to use it for blogging, when I’m hauling my pile of notes and receipts and laptop and general mish-mash to the coffee shop for the five minutes I get to myself every week.
On top of all this organizing and getting our heads on straight, we need to start thinking about our kids’ lunches. And keeping our parental selves fueled for the carpooling and the homework and the lost shoes and the baseball and the last minute science projects.
KIND bars are one of the few pre-packaged bars we will keep around the house. They are low in sugar with no artificial sweeteners and a good source of fiber and protein. They are also non-GMO, gluten-free and contain no hydrogenated oils, so they are a ginormous win-win.
What do I win?

KIND is also offering a box of Dark Chocolate Nuts and Sea Salt bars to start the school year off right. Or you know, to hide in the bathroom and eat all by yourself.
