It is summer season, which means that everyone will be heading to the beach in order to beat the heat. All of us face a number of issues when we head to the beach. If you are concerned that your lack of funds will bring you down, you have come to the right place because we have a number of tricks that will make your summer memorable.
Use That Empty Sunscreen
If you enjoy going to the beach, you must have an empty sunscreen bottle lying somewhere in the house. All you have to do is simply clean the bottle and use it to store your valuables like cash, car keys, and cell phones. The best part about this trick is that your valuables remained unharmed and no one will take away your belongings because who will think of looking in a random sunscreen bottle. Other great trick is to store your valuables in a tampon box or a disposable diaper bag.
Make a Waterproof Bag
There is no need to buy a waterproof bag from the top brands because you can make your own DIY waxed bag with the help of a paint brush, wax, double broiler, a dryer, pillowcase, and a bag. Get started by melting the wax in the broiler and then brushing it all over your bag. Put the bag in the pillowcase and then put it in the dryer for 30 minutes.
Keep Away the Sand
You can easily keep away the sand from irritating your skin. All you need is some baby powder. Put some generously on your hands and you will be sand free in no time.
Protect Your Phone
One of the best ways to protect your phone from water and sand is to put it a ziplock bag. This way your phone will remain safe and you will be able to use your phone through the bag.
Keep the Beach Towel Down
A lot of times people have to spread themselves all over the towel in order to weigh it down. One great way of overcoming this situation is to sew pockets on each corner of the towel and to store your valuables like shoes, sunscreen, and other valuables.
Soothe the Sunburn
If you want relief from sunburn, you should apply some aloevera gel. One great idea is to keep the bottle in the fridge, so that you have a cool gel to apply over your sun burnt area.
Unclog Your Ears
One great trick to unclog your ears is to blow a balloon after every dip because that way your ears will pop open.
Use Iced Tea
Who knew that there will be so many uses of simple old iced tea? You can use it to keep yourself hydrated and to relieve sunburn. Steep a few bags and apply the rag on sun burnt area in order to get immediate relief.
Make Your Own Tote
You don’t need to buy a huge tote for the summer season bit can instead use an old furniture cover and turn that into a bag.

“I thought of you and how you love this beauty,
And walking up the long beach all alone
I heard the waves breaking in measured thunder
As you and I once heard their monotone.
Around me were the echoing dunes, beyond me
The cold and sparkling silver of the sea —
We two will pass through death and ages lengthen
Before you hear that sound again with me.”
~ Sara Teasdale

a moonlit beach on the starlit sea,
a breath of opium,
