Pampered Chef: September Promotion

    I need ya'll opinion on something. I submitted 2 shows for the 15th and I get to choose one of the promotions for Sept. I was wondering if ya'll think the Carry All Tote bag or the Tool Turn About is better? I thought the carry all tote was the same tote we got in our kits but i heard it was bigger; however, i have the trifle bowl and the toolturn about and think it would benefit me more. Any thoughts?!

    The carry all isn't bigger than the kit tote, it's just different. It's a large bag with a large flat pocket on one side, and the rest of the interior divided into 3 sections. It's nice for carrying a flat item (platter) and large, light things (like mixing bowls, salad spinner, etc.). The TTA tote is great for the TTA and the trifle bowl. In fact, you can put the trifle bowl in first, then put the TTA on top.

    Personally, I use the TTA tote more, because I use it when I take a trifle to an event, not just for shows. And if you have the TTA in it, that frees up space in the kit bag for other things.

    If you don't already own the TTA tote, that's the one I'd suggest. No more worrying about all your stuff going all over if the TTA tips over on the way to you next show.

    Ditto what they said if you do not own the TTA Tote. You need it.

    But, the Carry-All Tote has three pockets that work well for separating items and a flat pocket that runs across the back. I would suggest everyone that already owns it (but maybe haven't used it in awhile) to unpack the CA Tote to haul the Barware since it scratches so easily.

    Those items, my big tote, the microfiber towels and a set of cookware protectors are what I'm using for safe transportation. I really don't like taking too many bags into a home so I place the TTA tote in the big tote. I use the striped soft bag for my catalogs and laptop. Sometimes I put my laptop and books in the CA tote to downsize to only taking 2 bags.

    I've found that the fewer trips I take into a home the more do-able my job seems to others that might be considering the opportunity.

    I'd check out what they cost on P3...you might want both.

    I have never used the envelopes or the knife case. They ended up being door prizes at my meetings
