It Doesn’t Take Much

. . . to make me happy.

Just this fantastic new beach/pool bag.

(I own a Lands’ End ones too and while I like it, I think this one is MUCH better – it’s far more flexible about holding oddly shaped things, lighter weight, and I can easily stuff three beach towels into it, along with a few other pool necessities. And an inside zip pocket for keys and phones? I love it.

Also, I took it to the pool last week with two towels, a swimsuit/hat/shoes for Ella, sunscreen, a hardcover book, some snacks, a full water bottle, my wallet, phone, and keys and then when we walked back to the car, I asked Landen if I’d forgotten my bag because I couldn’t even feel it on my shoulder. I swear, this is a miracle bag).

I got this bag for free, by the way, but I wasn’t asked or paid to write this post. I just really love this bag. In fact, I almost transferred all my purse stuff to it except then I realized I’d spilled my entire water bottle in it and it was soaking wet. I win at life.

    Nice! That is so super cute!

    I made that recipe you've posted/shared for spaghetti pie last night. So delicious!

    So cute! Whenever we go to the beach I always just end up using a reusable grocery bag – yours is way cuter. 🙂

    I can understand your joy at having a cute and functional beach/pool tote! I'm hugely envious because I have been searching for years for one that would work as perfectly for me but I think I have come to the realization that it is impossible to find a bag large enough to hold the towels, toys, snacks, and sunscreen for 5-6 of us:-(

    Of course the easy solution would be to divide our stuff in half and have one of my sons carry the other half but why deprive the other one of learning their life-long duty of being a pack mule for the women in their lives?? It's like choosing which one I love more. Obviously the fact that I can have this internal struggle (nearly to the point of tears) everytime I look at beach bags means that I win at life too!

    Is that price the monogrammed price?

    I'm simple amazed that you got all that stuff in it. It just doesn't look THAT big but there must be some magic involved…
    must order and find out myself.
