DIY BEACH TOWEL BLANKET WITH A PILLOW
If you’re a beach lounger rather than a swimmer, then you’ll absolutely love this towel blanket with a pillow. It’s perfect for reading and lounging on the beach. It’s doesn’t require too much sewing skill to put together, so it’s also a great beginner’s project.
FITTED SHEET SAND-FREE LOUNGING SPACE
There are all kinds of great hacks on this post, but this has got to be the simplest one of all. To get a sand-free lounging or picnic space, simply take a fitted sheet with you, and place a heavy item in each corner (like a beach bag or cooler), and pull the corners up over them. No more sand in your sandwiches.
SUNSCREEN BOTTLE VALUABLE HOLDER
If you’re running around after kids, trying to have a spot of fun yourself and making sure that everyone is safe, you don’t need the added hassle of trying to keep track of your stuff. To avoid your valuables becoming easy pickings, stash them in the least obvious place — your sunscreen bottle.
CHAPSTICK MONEY HOLDER
This beach hack is actually also a great travel hack, especially if you’re going somewhere a little unfamiliar and possibly unsafe. Make sure you always have cash on you by keeping a few dollars rolled up in an empty ChapStick tube — no-one will ever guess!
