Do you go to the pool or beach and end up with sand everywhere in your beach bag (in spite of your efforts to keep it out)? Or soggy towels and swimsuits that get everything all wet?
Well, look no further than these plastic tarp-like bags! They are the absolute perfect bag to load up towels, goggles, sunscreen, etc.! They keep water out because they are basically plastic and it doesn’t matter if you get sand in them because all you have to do is shake it out! Sunscreen spill? Wipe it clean in a jiffy!
I also like to use mine for traveling in the car on vacation to put big packs of diapers and bulky shoes. They also come in handy to transport my son’s bulky medical supplies from place to place. The uses are endless!!
I like to get mine at TJ Maxx because they have a little more structure and cuter designs than the ones Ross Dress for Less has, but you can certainly choose for yourself.
If it rips (which typically takes a long time to do), then just go get another
(I typically keep a few on hand so I can easily switch bags when that happens)! You’ll only be out pocket change!
Now, what to put in it?
I like to keep it simple so I don’t have to lug the children and the kitchen sink to the pool!
-Baby wipes (every kid needs their mouth wiped at some point)
-Sunscreen (I keep mine in a sealed plastic bag to prevent spills)
-Goggles (Splash Swim Goggles are worth every penny!)
-A few pool toys for entertainment (the longer you stay at the pool, the cleaner your house stays!)
-Band-Aids (for the occasional stubbed toe)
And, you’re off to the pool!
