Beach Bag

What’s in Your Beach Bag?

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
  • Towels
  • $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
  • Book
  • 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! 🙂
