EzPacking Goes to the Beach

EzPacking Goes to the Beach

Summer is around the corner and that means it’s time for the beach.

The kiddos love the beach. They can build sandcastles, play catch, and make a mess without upsetting the painstaking organization in the living room. While going on a nice beach outing is great family fun, it takes some prep from mom.

We designed EzPacking as an organization system of packing cubes meant for a suitcase. We wanted to start with a small, achievable goal: to help moms pack for a family and stay organized on trips. After speaking to many customers, we learned that they were using EzPacking for reasons beyond what we had originally imagined. How awesome was that!?! Many customers told us they used EzPacking to organize for family outings to the beach. Here are a few ideas we got from our customers on how to use EzPacking to keep neat and tidy on your next beach day.

The duffle bag is a collapsible bag and perfect for a beach outing!

1.Use a handy duffle bag: Let’s face it, going to the beach is no fashion trip. You don’t need a luxury handbag or an expensive designer tote for the beach. You need a functional bag that will do the job and not break the bank. Luckily, our foldable duffle bag is just that. You’ll have a hard time finding a duffle bag with functionality and durability for only $14.99.

It’s the perfect way to pack all your beach belongings. If it gets dirty or sandy, it can easily be rewashed and used for other purposes. Or it can be your dedicated beach bag. Oh, and did we mention that it folds into itself? That’s right, fold it up into a small pouch when not in use and you will almost forget that you had it!

2.Towel Strategy: Towels can be a big bulky mess. Use the large cube to comfortably pack two beach towels. Rather than carry them loose and have them take up a lot of space, place them in the large packing cube to compress them and reduce their bulk.

Magazines easily fit into the medium cube. Make sure they don't get wrinkled on the trip to the beach!

3. Bring at least one medium packing cube to prepare for contingencies. The beach can be hot one minute and cold the next. Need a place to pack a few extra sweaters for the kids? Or an extra pair of clothes so that they can shower at the beach and come home clean? Or need a place to pack a magazine or two without creasing it (which would happen if you threw it in a beach bag). The medium cube is just for that!

4. Pack beach toys in a Small Cube. Beach toys easily get lost… think of how many times you’ve had to buy new toys for the youngsters. Having a packing cube dedicated to toys is a great way to avoid loosing the favorite pool toys. Once the bag gets sandy, you can easily clean it off with a baby wipe or a wet towel and it will be good as new to use for non sandy occasions! Here’s a great photo of our youngest customer taking her toys to the pool!

The extra small cube easily packs beach essentials - car keys, sunscreen, lip balm and a cell phone

5. The small items in life always seem to slip away. And we don’t mean metaphorically. We’re talking car keys, cell phones, sunscreen, and other essentials that can get lost amid the shuffle and commotion of a beach day. Pack these essentials in the extra small packing cube for some peace of mind.

6. An easy way to follow these suggestions is to buy the Starter Set, which includes four packing cubes (1 Large, 1 Medium, 1 Small, 1 Extra Small). It is a versatile organizational system that will make organizing easy for years to come!
