Not Just Another Bag

I love bags. I have a variety for all different purposes, most stay semi-packed all the time.

One of my favorite bags is this beach/pool bag.

It gets used a ton over the summer and is always stocked with sunscreen, pool toys, goggles, my daughter's ear plugs, hand sanitizer, and baby wipes. Then right before we leave I add towels, snacks, drinks, and change of clothes.

This bag is HUGE. It holds all the stuff for our family of 5! Yes, 5 towels are no problem for this bag!

The best part is that it is a strong, heavy mesh material so sand falls all the way through and out the bottom to minimize the gritty sand you bring home with you! It also works the same for crumbs from smashed up crackers. Not that I know that from experience or anything!!!

Please don't ask me about the time I found ants feasting on crumbs in a different bag without holes in the bottom! Hmmmm, maybe I need a purse made out of this material!

You can find your own bag like this here.

I am hooked on this bag and I don't know about you, but anything that means a little less mess in my life is definitely a finer thing!

  1. Great organizational tip. I need a fully loaded bag ready to go... I'm too often rushing to find things at the last minute!

  2. Thanks so much for this post. I have been lookimg for a good pool bag.

  3. Love the bag...I have one just like it! It too is always packed and at the ready... I keep it right by the door all summer! My routine is when we get in from the beach or someone elses pool, all towels get dried in the drier or washed and dried if needed, rolled up and put right back in! Great ideas!

  4. Looks like a winner! I'm always on th elookout for a great beachbag...

  5. great tips!
    I love the bag and the color of the bag!

  6. Definitely feeling that bag...might need to purchase one for myself....

  7. Cool bag. I too have a bag addiction. From Walmart, to Avon, to coach...I am always on the lookout for a bigger and better bag. I will have to check this one out.

  8. I love bags too. The best part is finding what you left there ages ago.

  9. I have a HUGE bag addiction!! My mother-in-law gives me all of the free bags that she gets through Lancome purchases. I love it!! This bag that you have shared...I'm drooling over it! I also really like that you have it packed and ready to go, and all you have to do is add a few things. Great idea!

    Sorry you haven't seen me around much...I promise I'm still here! ;)
