Giveaway: Initials, Inc.

I‘ve got another fun Home for the Holidays giveaway! All week long at Simple Living Media we’re celebrating with great gift ideas and 15 giveaways across the entire network — perfect for the holidays.  We’re highlighting special companies we’d like you to think of as you’re making your lists and checking them twice.

This giveaway is now closed.  Thank you!

Personalize it with Initials, Inc!

Today’s giveaway is from Angela Smith of Initials, Inc. Angela happens to be a long-time friend of mine and when she started raving about the Initials, Inc products,  I knew this would be a company worth checking out.

The items are kid-friendly, tastefully designed, and well-made, plus the personalization is always free!

Today’s giveaway is for a $100 gift certificate to Initials, Inc. I know you’re going to have a good time searching through the catalog and finding items to personalize for your home and your loved ones this holiday season.


When I was choosing products to review, I knew that I wanted to get bags for myself and my oldest daughter, but I wasn’t sure which would be the right fit for our needs.

After consulting with me and asking lots of questions about what we needed the bags to be able to do, how we would be using them, and what they needed to be able to hold, Angela recommended the Get-a-Grip and the Travel Tote for Jillian and I. We’ve been using them for a few weeks now and they are terrific!

I’ve been impressed with just how much I can fit into the tote.  It has become my “go to” bag and has been going on errands with me as well as doubling as a diaper bag.  The interior of the bag is roomy and the exterior pocket is so convenient for my keys.  I love the look of the tote and the red flower that Angela included is the perfect little spark of personality.

Jillian loves her bag, too.  All of the pockets on the Get-a-Grip have been perfect holding the things she needs for to take with her to the library for a school project we’ve been working on, plus her water bottle and snacks fit into the bag, too.  The Get-a-Grip is open on the top for access and the handle makes it easy to carry the bag.  And, the bright cheerful striped pattern we chose is pretty fun.

But, Initials Inc is more than just cute and versatile bags.  They offer a wide range of items to help you and your family get organized in style. 

I’ve got my eye on the magnetic pockets, the bins, and the Sort It All Out.  I think their backpacks are adorable. There’s even a  Gifts on the Go section on the website with great ideas, too. I can see the Party Tub stashing toys in the living room.

One Simple Kids reader will win a $100 Gift Certificate to Initials, Inc!

  1. Catherine says:

    Art supplies need organizing. Love the colorful totes.

  2. I could really use a good library bag :)

  3. Closets and drawers need lots of organizing around here! I like the Initials, Inc. products such as the play date line and other bins.

  4. Jason White says:

    My wife would love these bags! Early Christmas present maybe?

  5. I honestly can’t think of a place in my life that doesn’t need organization! My car, my office, my kitchen. You name it, it needs it!

  6. There are a lot of things that could use some organizing in my life, although I think I’ve gotten a lot better in the last year. However, with another baby on the way, we really need to get my two-year-old’s toys under control, so some of the collapsible storage bins would be a great asset to us now! Thanks for sponsoring such great giveaways!

  7. JHollyhock (aka Jennifer) says:

    Our laundry, sports related items and books and papers always need organizing. Looks like they have some bins that would be great for the laundry.

  8. Toys at home and supplies at the shop. The Take a Long Caddy looks great.

  9. Kimberly B. says:

    I would love these! I could use a tote for kids’ stuff in the car.

  10. I agree with the, “what part of my life couldn’t use organization!” comments. Right now I am focused on my out of control pantry/laundry room. It is frightening to walk into! I love the weekender bag, very chic!

  11. Definately the car to home. I would love a couple of big roomie totes to load everything that I schlep into the house in one trip.

  12. Kelleyann M says:

    The bins and grab and go would work very well here! My house was broken into while we were away over a Christmas holiday and I swear the burglars had a more difficult time because my bedroom, in particular, was such a mess.

  13. My daughter’s toys need some organizing. They’re spread out in too many places. The Squared Away boxes look great for this.

  14. With five kids, I can’t think of an area in my life that doesn’t need organizing. One area in particular is my diaper bag! I noticed a super cute Poppy backpack on the website that would be awesome to carry my younger kids stuff around in. I loath my diaper bag with its poor pocket placement ( say that five times fast, lol). Another cute item I saw was the lunch bags! Wow I could use three of those. When trying to avoid public school lunches it is nice to have cute lunch bags. My kids are much more likely to be happy about packing lunch when they have a fun lunch box! I love this stuff, and could go on and on, but I will stop now.

  16. Rebecca M says:

    organized, i am not, anything that will help, a definite yes! really like the bucket tote… a great library bag!

  17. My homeschool supplies

  18. Elizabeth says:

    I would say my daughter’s room could use some organizing. The backpacks would be a fun way for her to carry her books around.

  19. Mary Beth says:

    I’m pretty organized in general, but I do like the Sort It All Out – I could use a couple of those. I love the Sassy bags, too.

  20. All our closets need some serious work!

  21. The kids’ closets need some serious organization.
    The better question might be what doesn’t appeal to me? It all looks so cute and functional. Thanks for the chance to win!

  22. The closet of the room that all 4 of my boys share could definitely use some more organization, as could our schoolroom downstairs. In the summer, keeping all of the swim stuff organized can be difficult. It was hard to pick just one item – a lot of what Initials, Inc offers is really cool!

  23. We could use lots of organizing help, esp. with papers everywhere. I really like the marvelous magnetic pocket!

  24. As a mom of 7 kids, I could use organization in EVERYTHING. LOL I love the bucket totes and the bins.

  25. I would like to organize some of our homeschool supplies.

  26. Awesome. I couldn’t get the links to pull up, but there is no doubt I would LOVE a travel tote.

  27. The areas of my life that could use a little organizing are the closets. All of them. It is embarrassing how messy they have become since I’m busy with my two kiddos.

  28. I need closet help!
