Let me show you my Pikle!

Several years ago when I had a "desk job" my co-worker would ask me if I had a ____ in my purse and often I could satisfy her request. I said I was a "mom in training"! But then I became a mom and I became a disorganized mess. Well not anymore! The Pikle to the rescue. Apparently these have been around for a few years but just launched into a direct sales opportunity in Oct. (I somehow manage to stumble on these things in their infancy) and I just knew I had to have one.... we'll I didn't think one would be enough so I got 2. I'm not sure what I am going to stock in the 2nd one yet maybe jewelry & make-up I wear often? But here is a detailed look at what you get with a starter pak.

Everything is super handy and quick to access.
The Pikle start pak comes with an instruction guide and everything you need to begin stocking your pikle!
Pocket 1
(antibacterial wipes) 
woah! My phone fits in there (sans tissues) that is pretty cool.... cause I am ALWAYS loosing my phone in one of my purse pockets or at the bottom of my purse!
 Pocket 2
(mirror with floss & band aides)
Pocket 3
(nail files, nail clippers & tweezers)

 Pocket 4
(sewing kit, tape measure, scissors & safety pins)

  Pocket 5
(mini screwdrivers)
  Pocket 6
(pen & paper)
Pocket 7

 Pocket 8
(hair bands, bobby pins & rubber bands)

instant stain remover pen & antibacterial hand spray
(and I don't go anywhere without one of my thirty-one custom made pens)

I wanted to see if all my Pikle paraphernalia would fit inside of one of my Thirty-One mini zipper pouches which is smaller than the Pikle clutch and it does! The only disadvantage is you have to pull it all out instead of just "flipping" through the pockets.

I ordered my Pickles from Independent Representatives
who were both great to work with! If you tell Julie I referred you she will hook me up with some free stuff ;-)
We traded product for product, thus I got my Pikles at a DISCOUNT and resisted the extreme urge to purchase an 8th starter kit... yes, that is how many "kits" I have purchased in my lifetime, but only ONE turned into a business!!!! So I will keep my Pikle tucked inside my favorite Thirty-one bag!

Thirty-One's Super Cinch Sac vs. Retro Metro Weekender

One of my customers told me this is the perfect camping because she can put for each family member in their own bag. Then I saw someone put a picture on FB with sleepover gear and I thought what a great idea (says the mom of a daughter). Not all my customers camp, but certainly they all have a child that sleeps over... or dirty laundry! 

So I put it to the test:
√ sleeping bag
√ pillow
√ blanket
√ "Mr. Fluffy Pants"
Depending on your "sleeping gear" you should have room for a change of clothes and some jammie's. And if not one of our handy Cinch Sac. Toiletries and at the very least some clean undies can go in the roomy zipper pocket on the bag. Prior to the introduction of our Super Cinch Sac our largest bag was the Retro Metro weekender which retails for nearly twice the price and half the size! 

We offer colors tailored for both girls and boys. I just happen to have the plum on as one of my FREEBIES...same as the duffle bag, didn't pay for that either! I'm not joking when I say, Cute Bags For Free!

There are plenty other uses you can find for this roomy tote which has a shoulder strap you can't see in the photo.
√ laundry bag
√ ball bag
√ wreath storage
√ traveling toy bin

If you have a great idea, I'd love to hear it, please comment below!
