Going to the beach should be a fun Summer activity, but when the whole family gets involved, it can turn into a nightmare if you're not properly prepared. Now, to clarify, we don't mean bringing an entire convenience store for an afternoon in the sun. There are, however, a few essentials that will allow you to enjoy your time by the water and not feel like a professional bag lady.
This year, you're going to have a beach bag that looks like it was professionally packed, with a hat that folds up, a card case on your phone, and of course extra sunscreen. Plus, there's a mitt you can buy that will wipe off errant sand like a pro. Now that you've packed your bag, all that's left to do is hit the beach! Happy Summer indeed.
