Beach towels. OBVIOUSLY. I always bring an extra + a hand towel.
My friend Michelle taught me this one. Baby powder gets the sand off body parts. Awesome mom tip.
Look, we're not getting any younger and sunblock can only do so much.
PACK YOUR TRASH.
Bring plenty of reading materials.
Snacks. Here's a tricky one. I don't pack snacks. If they get hungry, we leave. Feed them before you go.
Binoculars. DUH, for the DILF's at the beach. Oh, or to find your kid. Yeah, that one too.
Bring plenty of water. Dehydration is no joke.
Spray on sunblock! This is my favorite.
Goopy sunblock + sand = disaster
Isn't this a given?
Leave at home anything that requires a second bag. (unless you have a second person to carry it) You're going to the god damn beach, not a weekend away at grandmas.
