Beach Bag Towel Blanket
This is an amazing project for the summer. It’s actually a tote, towel, and blanket all in one. You can store loads of beach worthy items and accessories in it and it folds up nicely for easy carrying. What’s really great about it is that it doubles as a beach towel or blanket and when it’s folded up, it works as a little pillow as well. This really is the “everything you need for the beach” accessory and you can make it yourself really easily. No more toting multiple things to the beach. You just need this one bag and that’s it.

Keep Refrigerated Drinks in Place
If you tend to have trouble keeping those bottles or cans of drinks in the fridge from falling all over the place, you can use binder clips to keep them perfectly in place. Just clip the binder clip to your fridge shelf and it will keep those drinks from rolling. This not only helps you to avoid spills and other messes, it helps you to keep your fridge organized so that you have room for all of those deliciously cold summer treats that you may be making up. It’s also a really inexpensive fix. You can get binder clips for less than $1 each at the Dollar Store.
