I don't think there's anything better than a day at the beach. But, bringing home most of the sand can be a real hassle. Here's a Daily Shortcut to make sure you leave the sand from the beach at the beach!
Keep your beach toys in a mesh bag...or better yet, a crate with holes. It's easy to carry, and when you get home, you can hose it off, no more sand! Better yet, hose the crate off before the toys even get in the car. The same principle works for shoes. Try to keep an extra pair of shoes, just for the beach, in your car. You wear your beach shoes out of your car, and when you return to your car, put your beach shoes back in a handy plastic bag. That way, you can wear your fun beach shoes at the beach, and the sand also stays...at the beach.
