What’s in my Beach Pool Lake Bag

05/24/2017 1 Comments

I finally got organized and designated one bag as my Beach, Pool, Lake bag a few years ago. Seriously, it’s a summer/vacation game changer. Once bag where I can find everything I need, whether I’m enjoying the Bahamas, Lake George or my pool 🙂

With summer starting this weekend, I thought this would be a good time to go through exactly what I keep in my go-to bag.

Let’s start with the bag:

It should have sturdy handles and a squishy material in order to fit in different places (Boat compartment, suitcase).

It should be a bag you are ok with getting sandy and dirty. Mine is from a trip to the Bahamas a few years ago. These will do though!

These are some essentials I keep inside:
Sunglasses 1 | Sunglasses 2 (Similar) | Sunglasses 3 | Sunglasses Case (Nordstrom Rack in-store) | A book | Phone Case | Water Bottle
Drink Floats are always a must, I blow them up and down each time. Everyone knows which one is mine lol.
Sunscreen: For face & body (I use separate ones because my face is so sensitive)

Other essentials:

Extra flip flops-you never know when one breaks, you lose one or sometimes I wear my birkenstock’s
icon but don’t want them to get wet or dirty.
Water shoesThese are my favorite! (ON SALE!!)
Small bottle opener– This may be for the boat/pool time, I always find myself needing one
Plastic Baggies
Hair tie

What do you keep in your beach bags?!

Oh and one more thing..
