Summer is finally here – can I get an “amen”?!
With the outdoor season in full swing, the Reeves crew is out and about on the daily. Whether it’s sporting events, park days, swimming, etc. we always have a lengthy list of supplies that we need to bring with us. For years we would pack up the car with a hot mess of gear in various bags/boxes and last minute items thrown in loosely. The lack of organization caused unnecessary stress and frustration when we’d start unloading at our destinations.
I finally wised up and decided to eliminate the chaos and focus my energy on the quality time with my family. I’m excited to share a few of the products that seriously upgraded our on-the-go experience:
((WAGON)) This little wagon is LIFE. We can easily tote all of our equipment (including children and pets) wherever we go. It collapses down for compact storage space, and can hold up to 150 lbs. It is quite possibly my favorite purchase of the year! https://amzn.to/3hTK6a0
((ZIPPER POUCHES)) It’s tricky when you end up with a bottomless Mary Poppins bag of loose supplies. I love these waterproof, reusable pouches to organize sunblock, snacks, phones, and any other small items that tend to get lost in the shuffle. You can even assign one color to each child so they can easily grab their pouch when they need it. https://amzn.to/3yHscx6
((ORANGE BAG)) Speaking of a Mary Poppins bag, it’s super helpful to have one, reliable summer bag where you can keep all of your zipper pouches and other essentials. This awesome one from Target is lightweight, waterproof, and the ideal size for storage and simplicity. https://shopstyle.it/l/buOM4
((SHADE TENT)) Being a bonafide soccer mom has meant a LOT of time outside at games. I’m very sun-conscious when it comes to my family’s skin, and was thrilled to find this pop-up shade tent for my kiddos to sit in. https://amzn.to/3fmM9BZ
((HAMMOCK CHAIRS)) Not all outdoor chairs are created equal. We have spent many summers sitting on your basic, foldable camping chairs that are functional, but seriously lacking in the comfort department. I cannot recommend these Hammock Loungers enough! Justin and I are both very tall humans, and these have been incredible upgrades from being squished in a metal-framed square. https://amzn.to/3wEGwF1
((BLANKET)) I always found myself frantically grabbing the closest blanket on the way out the door when we were heading to parks, only to realize they don’t all make for great outdoor seating. This designated picnic blanket is huge, waterproof, and super comfortable for any outside activity. https://amzn.to/3fSkQyu
((TOWELS)) Raise your hand if you’re sick of damp towels blanketing your cars and households all summer! It’s truly one of my biggest pet peeves. But you guys, these gorgeous Turkish cotton beach towels dry SO fast, they are big enough for adults, and they roll up really small. Serious game changers. https://amzn.to/2TlQRas
Remember not to sit on the sidelines of your life this summer—dive in, be your authentic self, and create lasting memories with your loved ones. Happy organizing friends!
