Summer is finally here (even if it’s been a rainy one here in Michigan) and that means it’s time to hit the water!

Whether you’re finally diving back into that pool you got installed or you’re ready to hit the beach, summertime is the best time for enjoying the great outdoors. Of course, as anyone who enjoys a day by the water knows, there’s a lot of stuff to bring with you!

Sunblock, swimsuits, refreshments—a day at the beach can take almost as much packing as a picnic does! And even after your fun in the sun is done and you’re ready to go home, you might have a hard time figuring out where all this stuff is supposed to go when you get back.

That’s where we come in! The next time you start pulling all your beachwear or pool stuff together for a relaxing summer day, we’ve got a few ideas to help you create a ‘landing pad’ for all your beach accessories:

 

Lockers for swimwear: Swimwear is kind of a hard thing to store—you need to wash it separately from your usual clothes (especially if you’re in a pool, to avoid getting cleaning chemicals on your normal, daily-wear stuff) and even when it dries you want to keep it somewhere safe and accessible outside of the normal dressers. Home lockers are a great way to keep your swimwear dry, clean, and right nearby whenever you need it.

 

Hip to be square: Storage cubes are a quick way to stack up storage for things like sunglasses, sunscreen, and waterproof phone cases (look, we all need one, don’t feel bad) before you leave the house. Find a dedicated place in your home, like the laundry room or entryway, and fill up some storage cubes with all your beach day essentials to grab them more quickly on your way out the door.

 

Hang it up: When you get home, things like swimwear and towels will need somewhere safe to go to avoid ruining your other clothes or making everything wet. If you can’t line-dry them outside, we suggest a few wire shelves to hang onto your damp pool clothes before they can get properly washed to help prevent rust or moisture damage on anything.

 

Towel it off: A good way to keep your beach supplies easily accessible is to separate them from the normal collection. For example, if you have the space in your bathroom or laundry room, set up a separate towel rack to hang onto your longer beach towels and avoid getting them mixed up in the normal rotation. It’ll make them easier to find when it’s time to leave, and you’ll be glad they’re away from your standard bath towels!
