This weekend we are heading to the beach for some rest and relaxation. I do not want beach preparation to take too much time. So each season, I will rearrange my hall closet so that many of the items that we will need for outdoor fun for that season, are kept together. For example, during summer I will store the following items together:
- beach tote bag
- Ziplock bags (for wet clothing)
- beach towels
- cleansing wipes
I usually keep chapstick, a magazine and small items in the tote bag. I also keep a baggie of quarters in the bag as well for the parking meters. This way all we have to do is grab the cooler, sunglasses and some snacks and go. When we come back from our outing, the bag gets emptied and wiped down and then is restocked.
Having the items ready to go allows for more spontaneity, saves me time and makes it easier to remember all the details so that I can enjoy the activity sooner! Do you have tips that you use to “get out the door” quicker? I would love to hear them!
