Organizing with utility totes | A Bowl Full of Lemons

How I organize with totes!

I use organizing totes for just about everything…

My 4 yr olds “Away from home” toy bag
My “Office in a bag”
My Shaklee Cleaning supplies
Cheerleading & dance stuff
Going to the pool
Going to the library
Yard sale tote
Snack time for sporting events (basketball, cheerleading, soccer, baseball)

This tote holds my “Shaklee Mobile Office”

My “Mobile Office” contains…

Sticky Notes
Labeler (stays very close to me!)
Pens, pencils, markers
My Shaklee File Folders
Blank Cards (For thank you notes)
and “usually” an organizing book

I love having this “Mobile Office”.  I have 3 levels in my home, which are ALL used. When I’m working, I’m downstairs in my office in the basement.  When I go upstairs, to the main floor, I usually take my ipad & mobile office with me (so Im not running up and down the stairs). I get a constant flow of business & blog emails through out the day… So, Im always needing it for something. Then, In the evening when I go upstairs to my bedroom to relax… I dont always relax. I am still working or answering emails. So, my mobile office has been a life saver!  I absolutely LOVE it!

The colorful file folders are from Target.

Don’t you just love the teal color in this bag?

Here is another one of my favorite organizers from Thirty One. I use this as my “grocery shopping” organizer. I (usually) have a calculator, pad of paper, pens, and my store cards in it. I also store coupons in the pocket, for when Im ready to shop!

Its called the Fold-n-Go Organizer.

I usually keep my calculator in this pocket too!

Great for storing my store discount cards! This way, I never forget them.

Isn’t it cute?

This notepad came from Michaels, in the dollar section. I LOVE green!

I also have an organizing utility tote that I store & carry my Get Clean products in… to clean the house. Its super easy to carry it around as I clean from room to room. It has 7 pockets that hold A LOT of cleaners! I also keep my microfiber cloths, trash bags, gloves, and dusters in here.

The Scour Off fits perfectly in the side pocket.

The three spray bottles fit perfectly in the front 3 pockets.

The Shaklee microfiber cloths go in these 2 pockets. I use them for dusting and window cleaning.

  282. I would LOVE a tote that I can use as a combination purse and diaper bag. I hate having to carry two different bags around and I also want it to be something that can be organized.

  311. I love the organizing shoulder bag on page 28 of the catalog!

  312. I SO want one of those totes! {or three!} You use them for great reasons, and I am thinking I NEED to do that with my cleaning supplies. I am tired of lugging around a mop bucket and caddy.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  313. Of course I am a follower! You are one of my absolute favs!

  314. I checked out the catalog and there are so many nice things I want! I’d love the wall organizer, robot diaper and wipes bag, a bag to use as a home office like you did, or an apple blossom apron~!

  315. I’m a follower of your blog.

  316. I shared the give-away on facebook.

  317. I would love to have an organizing utility tote!

    Question: In your photo it shows you have a hard plastic insert – did you add this? Where did you get it?


  318. Jasmine, I purchased the plastic file box at the container store for less than $5.


  319. I am already a follower! Love your blog!

  320. Looked at the catalog…love the new patterns! Love the wild zebra and garden lattice.
    I like your totes you have. I would love the fold and go. I almost buy it every time I go to a 31 party but just havent yet.
    PICK ME!

  321. OOOH there are so many things to choose from that i can’t decide. I really like your idea on the mobile office, i have been doing some research on how to manage my office stuff now that my kids need a room and my office is no more. I would for sure start with the bag you chose for the mobile office. The next thing i want to get is a diaper bag that is big enough and cute just for me but holds my kids stuff.

  409. I really love all of the items in the new catalog, but I most like the large thermal container and large rectangle basket!

  410. Can I just tell you, when I saw the pictures, I just fell in love. I love organizing. I love my label maker too. One of the best gifts my husband gave me. Great ideas!!

  411. Love the totes!

  412. I see a plastic container in your totes-in one it is holding the file folders, and in the other it is holding your shaklee cleaning supplies. Where did you get the plastic container that fits so nicely in the tote? I just ordered Shaklee supplies and a tote to put them in. Thanks.

  413. I am a total 31 addict, so I totally LOVE these ideas! Thank you!

  414. I LOVE my Organizing Utility Tote! I am curious what you use in the interior of your cleaning tote? I’ve been looking for something like that to use in mine that I keep in my van!!

  415. JR Rosales says:

    I think I need that tote! As a matter of fact, I have changed rooms within an hour, carrying my papers, pencil case, planner and galaxy tablet with me.

  416. Btw, what are the other Thirty One Gifts items that you use? I think I need atleast 2pcs of that utility tote! :)

  417. I am a Thirty One consultant, and I’m loving the way you utilize these products! Thirty One has great products! I’m sharing this with some friends. Thanks!

  418. Hi! I just stumbled upon your blog and I just love all of your organizing ideas! I have the same tote from 31 and I am just wondering where you got the clear holder that the file folders are hanging in. Thanks!

  419. Georgette says:

    I recently discovered your blog and am loving your tips and ideas! I was curious, is the plastic insert in the “cleaning” tote the same as the one in your Mobile Office? If not, what is it and where did you get it? Thanks!

  420. Kristen Paul says:

    Love this file tote idea! Where did you get the file bin that is inside your Thirty One tote? I’m having problems finding one that is small enough. Would love to know!!! Thanks so much!

  421. Just found you and LOVE all you show. Quick question…Where did you find the plastic tote that fits in the 31 bags, that also has a place for the file folders? All the ones I’ve tried are too tall/big.

  422. Wow…it is a dream of mine to be this organized

  423. I LOVE thirty one bags! I am currently in a temporary living situation (with 99% of my home contents for a family of 4 in storage) and am following you on Pinterest. I am using your ideas to help me start organizing my vital information, the childrens school items, mine and my husbands business items, and everything else we have on hand until our home is ready. Then, I will be organizing each room during the move and hope to keep it that way. Thanks for all for all of the fantastic ideas!

  424. I love, love the Shaklee organizer. Much nicer than the plastic one where my spray bottles keep falling out.

  425. Where did you get the plastic box you put into the thirty one bags

  426. Hi, came across your blog while I was looking for office in a bag. Love it! I have signed up by email. Keep the great tips coming.


  427. I’m going to apologize if you already answered this question. I’m getting ready to order my totes from 31 and I want to make sure that I’m seeing everything correctly is there an insert in both your office in a bag and the cleaning tote.

  428. Donna O. says:

    Love the organization. FYI, there’s a free app for android and iPhone called Keyring. You can scan all of those store cards into your phone with this app and not have to keep up with all of the cards. Also, it will automatically download all of the discounts and free offers that each store gives to its cardholders–no keeping up with that kind of coupon, like the ones from BB&B, CVS, Hancocks, etc.–and discontinue the offer when it expires!

  429. Love the way you use Thirty-One’s fabulous products. So very happy that Thirty-One is now in Canada so I can be an Independent Consultant and get all these organizational items as well as their purses, bags etc. Will refer your blog to my customers and team members!

  430. I use totes to organize too…just want to know where to keep them out of the way! wish i had an extra closet just for totes..

  431. I love your tote idea.

  432. What do you use to hold the file folders?

  433. OMG I never thought of having a “Mobile office”. I usually end up having a mess of papers upstairs (living area) and then after a week I’d have to go through all the papers that I piled and organize into the office which is downstairs. I end up just putting it in another pile and at the end of the month get fed up with the HUGE pile of papers and either go through them or unforntuately put them in the “Don’t give a Hoot what’s in this pile” box. I’m going to set me up one this weekend. Now to find the tote! :) Thanks!

  434. Toni,

    The binder that is with the fold n’ go organizer. Where did you get it?
