Initials, Inc. - Spring

I was given the opportunity to review one of the items from Initials, Inc. new Spring & Summer 2013 Collection.

A bit about Initials, Inc.

“Launched officially as a Direct Selling Association party plan company in early 2005, Initials, Inc. is now represented by thousands of Independent Creative Partners throughout the United States.” But you don’t need to host a party or even become a consultant to make a purchase, you can buy online! I don’t know a consultant personally so having to find a stranger in my area then go to or host a party is just not something I personally want to do. So I like the fact that I can order these great products directly online!

Initials Inc Review: Big Grip Bag


I went with the Get a Big Grip in a Cabo pattern. I wanted something large enough to take to all the kid’s baseball games. Considering we are at the fields about 10 times a week, I like to bring toys, food, and drinks to keep everyone happy. This bag is huge, look at the top picture, I was able to put 2 jumbo toss pillows in the bag with ease. The Big Grip has 9 pockets on the outside but none on the inside. I would have liked to have seen at least one pocket to “hide” keys or money. But I do love this bag, it gives me enough room for all my stuff! The stitching on the letter “G” was done nicely as well, no loose threads. I can’t wait to see what they come out with for the fall…I will be needing something for football season!
