BEACH TRIP PACKING ESSENTIALS AND TIPS


































Its quite obvious someone has beach on the brain. I promise this is my last beach post. And then its on to bombarding you with a gazillion ode's to summer. But in the mean time. I'm making my list and checking it twice. Traveling with little people tends to always leave me with the feeling that I'm forgetting something (or someone). So when the time comes I will be doing every stitch of laundry in the house and packing as I fold. I'm starting with theses tips and this list:

Some Tips for Packing:
-  Make a list of outfits you’ll wear each day. Doing so will help prevent over-packing.
-  Choose versatile pieces that you can mix and match.
-  Save space by tightly rolling as much of your clothing as possible. Line the bottom of the suitcase   with your heaviest items first, then put lighter items on top of that.
-  Fill nooks and crannies with smaller items -socks, belts, etc.
-  Always put toiletries in a plastic bag. Believe me, you definitely don’t want to open your suitcase and find that the shampoo (or lotion, or body wash) exploded all over your clothes.
-  Leave some space for anything you might want to bring back!

Allow me to suggest ziplock bags to put your phone in while at the beach and pool. It keeps the sand off and water out while remaining fully functional. And talcum powder which somehow magically removes sand from toes, hands and anything else.
