The warm weather is here, and my beach bag is packed and waiting by the door. Let’s take a look at the things to keep in your beach bag:
- Beach Blanket
- $20 – just in case the ice cream truck shows up 🙂
- Swim goggles
- Suntan lotion
Tip on suntan lotion: I keep a bin for suntan lotion in the bathroom. Since the instructions say that you should put your lotion on 15-30 minutes before going out in the sun, we put ours on at home. I keep extra lotion in our beach bag, for reapplication.
Ready to head to the beach? Add the following items to your bag:
- Driver’s License
- Cell Phone
- House keys / car keys
- Snack: water, fruit and granola bars
Tip on food: If you’re planning to go to the beach for the day, and want to save some money, pack a sandwich and some drinks.
Lastly, grab the beach chairs, umbrella and toys and you’re off. We keep these items in a plastic storage bench outdoors, to ensure that we don’t bring sand back into the house.
Have fun at the beach! 🙂
