Let’s Pack The Beach Bag

This time of year, we’ve been known to keep a packed by beach bag by the door, in case the mood strikes. Here’s our never-fail list of what’s inside.

  1. SPF
    Yep, it sounds like a no-brainer, but you wouldn’t believe how easy it is to leave on the kitchen counter.
  2. A Pair of Sunnies
    Because face it, squinting is no fun.
  3. A Ziploc Bag
    Just the thing for stowing a wet swimsuit.
  4. A Beach Read
    Whether it’s a fashion rag or classic tome, the beach is that much better when you have something to flip through.
  5. A Pack of Cards
    Trust us, few things compare to a mean game of spit under the sun.
  6. Chapstick
    A chapstick like Aquaphor Lip Repair & Protect keeps those smackers from cracking in the heat.
  7. An Ice-Cold Water Bottle*
    Okay, okay this one is kinda cheating because we throw it in before we leave the house, but staying hydrated is key.
  8. Oranges*
    There we go, cheating, once again. Tuck a couple of oranges into a cooler to boost your energy (and add some Vitamin C too) while sit in the sun.
  9. Baby Powder
    The silky soft powder works wonders for brushing those pesky grains of sand away before heading home.

  1. I never thought of that re: baby powder! Typically for my beach trips I’ll keep a gallon of water from the supermarket/drug store in the trunk. It warms up in the car all day so you can take a quick warm “shower” before getting in the car :)

    Spit was hands-down mine and my sister’s favorite card game growing up! Way to bring it back, RueLaLa.
