10 Tote Lover Personalities

Customers love our utility storage totes – that’s why they’re always top sellers for us – but have you ever wondered what it is about our totes that draws you in? We think that everyone has a “tote personality” based on all the fabulous features of our totes, so we took some time to think about it. In the end, we came up with 10 distinct tote lover personality traits our Customers possess. How many of the 10 do you have? Read on and find out!

The Planner

You like to get things ready for any possibility, so you probably prepare by loading up Large Utility Totes with essentials for your family’s many activities and adventures. No matter what the occasion – kids’ sleepovers, softball practice, camping trip or car trunk emergency supplies – you have a tote at the ready for every purpose.

The Mover

You’re always on the go, with kids, for work, to the grocery, etc., and portable totes that can hold a lot and are easy to carry are essential to your busy life. The Journey Backpack is a great solution for you. With its hands-free backpack straps, top handles and plentiful pockets, it’s the backpack tote for life in the fast lane!

The Environmentalist

You’re concerned about the planet and want to make sure it remains beautiful and unpolluted, which means you probably love our reusable totes. Plastic bags are a no-no in your household, so when you head to the grocery, you grab something sustainable, like our Essential Storage Totes with eco-friendly graphic messages.

The Fashionista

You NEED a tote that can hold a lot, but you WANT a tote that has style and looks good when you’re out and about. Lucky for you, our totes were made for the practical-thinking fashion-forward types. With delicious details, trend-now colors and prints, and fabulous, functional features, you’ll always find a tote to suit your style, like the New Horizons Tote. Its slouchy, oversized proportions make it the perfect beach bag, shopping tote or travel bag!

The Artist

You want a tote that’s all personality…yours! No worries, we have personalization designs you can add to your favorite tote to make it truly unique. Depending on the type of tote you want to personalize, you have the option of adding monograms, names, phrases, Icon-Its™ designs, or even photo images. Let your creativity flow and design a travel tote, storage tote, shopping tote and more for yourself or someone else.

The Pragmatist

Reliable and sturdy, that’s what you look for in a storage tote for home organization or a portable tote for carrying everything from sports equipment and camping supplies to books and tools. The Deluxe Utility Tote was designed for large loads. The hard bottom provides added stability, while metal grommets and reinforced, stitched handles give it  strength and durability.

The Space Saver

You’re all about space and efficiency, so you love to have things neatly stowed away but easily accessible for when you need them. That’s why you love our Top-A-Tote® and Deluxe Top-A-Tote® lids made especially for our LUTs and DUTs. Not only do they make your favorite storage totes stackable, the clear PVC on top lets you view the contents inside without having to remove them first!

The Stylist

Mix it, match it, you love to coordinate looks in your home and in your personal style! Our seasonal tote prints and colors are designed to work together to create a look that is cohesive and stylish. Create a color scheme that works with your home décor or find a tote print that fits your mood. There’s no wrong answer!

The Minimalist

Out of sight, out of mind is your motto, so when you have a few of our totes that aren’t currently in use, no problem! Our Foldaway Totes tuck inside of themselves so you can stow them away in a pocket, purse or handbag until you’re ready for shopping. Our Large, Small and Deluxe Utility Totes all collapse down to a flat position so you can easily hide them away in a closet, drawer or under a bed when they aren’t in use.

The Giver

Need a great gift idea? Our totes make the perfect gifts, gift bags or both! If you’re the type that loves to give unique, thoughtful gifts on special occasions, or just to say thank you to a friend or neighbor, consider filling up a Tiny Utility Tote or Small Essential Storage Tote with lots of small items. Make it even more special by personalizing their gift tote with a monogram, name or meaningful phrase.

Need Help Eating Right

Back on track – AGAIN!  I remember the days when I measured and tracked every morsel I ate or even thought about eating.  I remember the days of being strong and walking away because is wasn’t point worthy.  I remember those days BUT I kind of relate them to child birth.  Okay, a strange analogy but think about it.  When you have a baby and are going through the pain of labor, you vow to NEVER do it again.  Then this cute baby comes out and the memory of the pain is gone.  The older that child gets, the further the memories get, right?

So, now think about dieting or should I say “healthy eating”.  When I started on my Weight Watcher’s journey, I was determined.  Nothing could get in my way.  No temptation was great enough to keep my for my goal weight.  I struggled.  Yes, it took me several years to reach goal but I did.  Then, the memories started to fade.  As I struggled to maintain, I started to sabotage myself.  I stopped tracking EVERY morsel.  I measured “most of the time”.  I didn’t say “NO” as much as I did before to sweets.  The results were a slide from goal weight to being up 10 pounds. For some, that isn’t a big deal BUT for me that was huge.  I am still in the size 12 pants – a little snug but I can still breathe.  I still get compliments on how much weight I have lost.  The truth is that I don’t feel “good” on the inside.

So, with the help of the NEW Weight Watcher Starter Kit, I am starting fresh.  It has only been a few days but I am measuring everything, The new plates have helped me to visualize exactly what I should be eating.  Shopping has become easier with my Thirty One Utility totes AND my Thermals

Post #9E  Post #12D

I LOVE that my Weight Watcher bento box fits perfectly in my Lunch Break Thermal lunch tote.  If I full my bento box with the right foods and ONLY eat those foods, I should be full.  If I am not, I am drinking more hot tea to hopefully fill me up.

I am blessed to have an AMAZING extended family – my 10AM Thursday Weight Watcher group.  Yes, it is a support group and I am proud to say that I am a member.  It with with their help and encouragement that I continue on this journey. As hubby says, I was at my best when I was going to the meetings and staying plugged in.  Sounds like an addict, huh?  Yup!  I have an addictive personality and if I didn’t, I probably would have never climbed to 290 pounds.

My best tip – successful weight loss is not a DIET, it is a journey.  It is changing your lifestyle so that you can LIVE healthier.  Do I think I know it all? NO!  Okay, well maybe the words “I got this” has escaped from my mouth on more than one occasion.  The truth is that I don’t have it.  I struggle every day.

So, what is your BEST tip for healthy eating? Share it with us

Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!
