On-The-Go Organization

Today I made a video on my mobile office on my youtube channel. I wanted to also do this blog post to share with you in more detail where I got many of the items that are a part of my mobile office. For my mobile office I use my Thirty-One utility tote. I got this tote several years ago and it is truly an amazing bag. It is very durable and I just love all of the pockets which allow for awesome organization.

Who could benefit from a mobile office:

-The Soccer Mom

If you are a mom that has that child is in so many activities and you spend a lot of your time sitting at practices then a mobile office is perfect for you. It allows you to work on your things while waiting such as your family menu plans, projects you are working on, your calendar activities.

-The Community Gal

If your involved in several community programs or activities, then having a mobile office is great to keep all of those community committee information all stored in one place and ready for you to grab and go as you need. It also prevents you from having to take up valuable space in your home to try and store anything related to activities outside your home.

-The Church Gal

For that woman that is very involved with her church activities a mobile office is a must. You can set your mobile office up to fit all your sunday school, bible study and church committee things. This way you are never late for Sunday morning service because your trying to locate everything you need for church.

-The Business Gal

If you are one of those gals that have your own home-based business you can definitely benefit from having an office on the go. A mobile office is great for that businesswoman to keep all of her home party catalogs and order sheets. All the supplies needed to do her home shows or to work on her business items. If this sounds like you, then why not check out these favorite office designs from shipping containers and be on your way to owning a portable office,

I have my own business in which many times I go sell my items at a kiosk. So this is the main function for my mobile office. It stores everything I need to complete my business activities on the go.

      Hi Audrea! Unfortunately you have to leave a comment on the video due to the selection is made from uploading the individuals from the comment section and generating the winner. I know sometimes I am unable to leave comments if I am using my phone or ipad. Please try again during this week, perhaps it is just a temporary glitch. I would love for you to enter. Hope your weekend is going great. Nikki

  5. Cecilia says:

    I was just wondering if you have mobile office tote for each of your activities? I mean, do you have a separate office tote for church, one for business, one for community activites, etc.? Or, do you use just same/ one for all of these? And how do you manage more than one activity with one tote?
