This month's customer special is the one and only Small Utility Tote. This tote has quickly become one of my favorites. It is so versatile and can be used for so many uses. I love the size of it because I do not always need a Large Utility Tote to carry the things that I need.
Thirty One blogged some of the possible uses for the Small Utility Tote. They listed 131 uses. I'm going to highlight just a few of my favorite uses.
Baby Changing Station
Stock it up with everything that you would need. Diapers, wipes, a change of clothes, diaper creme, lotion, etc and you have yourself a mobile baby changing station.
Backseat Busy Bag/Kids' Activity Bag
When we have taken longer trips, we have loaded our Small Utility Tote up with a different selection of toys and set it next to our little guy's car seat so he can grab what he wants to play with.
Yarn & Crochet Projects
The Small Utility Tote is the perfect tote to store all of your knitting and crochet projects in and keep next to your favorite chair.
Coach’s Bag/Snack Mom
Do you coach a team and have to haul stuff back and forth to practice? Or are you the designated snack mom? This month's customer special is the tote for you then. It is big enough to carry all of your essential coaching & snacking needs, but small enough that it is easy to just grab and go.
Hanging Files/Mobile Office
The Small Utility Tote is perfect for holding your hanging files. Tuck any other office supplies in with your files and you have yourself a handy dandy little mobile office.
Boat Tote/Beach or Pool Bag
Need a small tote to hold some of your more commonly used items on your boat? We have used this as our beach bag when we visited Lake Michigan last year. It was the perfect size to carry all of our wet shoes and beach toys for the kiddo.
Teacher Bag (Sunday School)
Seriously, this bag is great for carrying all your essential needs for teaching. And it's cute. And you can personalize it in fun ways to amuse your coworkers or entertain the kids.
I haven't used this tote yet, but I know it would make an amazing library bag. I probably should since I always seem to fill up our Essential Storage Tote with the books we check out.
Babysitting Survival Guide
If you are a babysitter/day nanny or you have a kiddo that babysits for extra cash, this is a great tote to fill up with little crafts, dvds and toys that can be used to help distract and entertain the kiddo's you are watching.
It is very possible that I will be using this idea this coming summer. We always take out all of our gardening tools when we work in the yard and garden and by the end of the summer we have lost or misplaced most of our tools. If we have a bag that we can put everything back in to as we are cleaning up we can keep them all in a central location.
Is your trunk a constant wreck like mine? I always have everything rolling around in my trunk. Throw a Small Utility Tote in the trunk and you can use it to catch all the small stuff that rolls around in your trunk.
If your going away for the weekend, the Small Utility Tote is perfect for carrying what you need. It's nice because it is small and easy to carry.
To make your shopping more fun, Thirty One has added six new patterns from our upcoming spring catalog to the selection that you choose from when you make your customer special selections.
