As an organization fanatic, I fell in love with all things Thirty-One.
Seriously, I get giddy over their products. The beautiful designs and practical function of the products made them (at least in my mind), the perfect solution for so many areas of my home. I want pretty much at least one of everything, buuuut…have to show some restraint.
My first exposure to the products was through a friend who had worked as a consultant. She had it throughout her home, but the thing that really caught my attention was her wallet. I love a wallet that opens up all the way and has a lot of space for organizing.
After seeing her wallet, I decided to check everything out online.
You guys, I’ve been hooked ever since.
My first purchase was a purse that was on clearance and then a wallet. They are beautiful!!
Over the last few months, I’ve also bought a couple of totes. One is for our beach/pool bag and the other is my errands tote. These have been so useful in keeping everything together.
I recently took advantage of an incredible sale they had going on and eventually, I will do a video on how I am using them to stay organized.
You guys, these products are amazing! They are beautiful and extremely well made. I have found similar looking items in stores, but rarely are they as good of quality and as durable. With kids in the house, I NEED durable.
Long story short, when I went to purchase my first item, my friend was no longer a consultant with Thirty-One. When I was looking to purchase the purse, the system had a consultant contact me, but she was out of town. I really wanted to be able to touch and feel the quality of the products before buying.
A friend mentioned that she knew someone local who was a consultant for the company. I contacted her and turns out we had met a few times over the years.
She was having a party that weekend at her friend’s place and she told me I was welcome to come along.
I have never shown up at someone’s house, to a party, not knowing the host, but I REALLY wanted to see these products. I totally party crashed! Hahah. I am glad I did!
A couple months later I was able to sit down with Christina and ask her some questions about the company and the opportunity to work from home.
This is her story:
Christina is a wife and mother of 2. She works a couple of days a week at her job and also does Thirty-One on the side. She originally started with Pampered Chef years ago, but as her hours at work had picked up, she dropped it.
She started with Thirty-One in January of 2017.

A couple evenings a week I place orders and do follow up with customers.

Any final comments or thoughts?
Thirty-One is a great opportunity with fantastic, useable products. It’s a great opportunity to get in early while it is still fairly new.
These products are really awesome! If you love beautiful designs, organizing your home and would like to earn some extra income, then Thirty-One could be the perfect fit for you.
