As we make small changes to our lives, we are striving to become greener. We’ve already switched out our cleaning products to natural ones, and have started to use energy efficient bulbs in our home. The next step for us was to get rid of the paper and plastic disposable grocery bags…and we did so with the help of the Thirty One Market Thermal Tote.
The first thing I loved about this bag is the color scheme. Because we received this item for review, we were able to customize what was written on the outside as well as the font and bag colors. I had two options for the pattern of the bag, and I went with the “Black Pick Me Plaid”. James does a lot of our grocery shopping, so I like they had a gender neutral color that he liked too.
For the personalization, I chose the Aqua thread color and opted to have our last name printed on the bag. I thought about having “Groceries” or “Picnic” printed on it, but I knew I’d be using this tote for a number of things so it was better to go with our name.
The Market Thermal Tote offers a lot of room on the inside, which is heavily insulated to keep cold foods cold and hot foods hot. We love to put in our ice cream, frozen dinners, and other things we buy from the frozen section while at the store. It’s also great for family dinner transport – we actually used it over the weekend to carry our hot Super Bowl goodies in. They were still warm when we reached our destination!
We have already started discussing family picnics this spring. I know that this bag will hold all of our food and drinks for those outings. I cannot wait to fill it and carry it on the mountain for a day of relaxation and fun! Oh, and the lining is water-resistant, making clean up a breeze if there was an accidental spill.
If you are in the ‘market’ for the Thirty One Thermal Market Tote, be sure to get in touch with Mary Williams. She is an independent Thirty One consultant, and she’s the one that sent us this tote for review. You can purchase items from her at her website. Also, be sure to connect with her via Facebook!
