Will you be spending time at the beach soon? If so, be sure to take note of these creative, helpful and inexpensive tips to HACK your next beach trip like a pro!
1.) Baby Powder
Bring along some baby powder and sprinkle on skin to get rid of extra sand. This really works well!
2.) Pack Smart
Make edible ice packs with frozen grapes, juice boxes, and bottled water to save room in the cooler.
3.) Fitted Sheet Trick
Lay out a fitted sheet on the sand and anchor with heavier items on each end to slow down the sand from getting on yourself and/or the kiddos.
4.) Instant Phone Cover
To avoid getting your phone wet, place inside a resealable plastic bag. You’ll be able to still view text messages and incoming calls while at the beach without the risk of water damage. Just keep in mind that this is not 100% waterproof since seal or bag could break.
5.) Disguise Your Valuables
Place items in an empty Pringles can or wrap in a clean disposable diaper to keep valuables safe while you swim.
6.) Snack Smart
Re-use food containers to keep snacks from crumbling in your beach bag!
7.) Plastic Wipes Container
Use an empty plastic wipes container to house trash bags and then use it store wet swim suits inside once you are ready to head home from the beach.
