Whether you’re going to the beach, the lake or the pool this summer, I’ve got a beach bag for you today. Not only that, but I’m filling three great beach bags with all the necessities, and they’re from three of your favorite bargain resources: Target, Walmart and Amazon. Bingo!!!
My daughter Abigail has recently started working for me part-time. She’ll be posting daily mini-devotionals in my Instagram stories and helping me with fielding questions from followers and readers. But she’ll also occasionally help me with posts like today’s. Honestly, Abigail did a better job filling these beach bags than I could have!
She’s found three great beach bags at Amazon, Walmart and Target. Then she’s collected a few of the beach bag necessities from each retailer. You won’t find every essential in all three shopping collections, but you’ll find everything you need between the three.
The following photos are all shoppable. Just click directly on the photo to shop for the item with the retailer listed. We’ve included prices, but sometimes the actual price is different, so click through for the latest price updates. These are affiliate links, so if you shop through them I potentially earn a commission, but at no added cost to you. Abigail helped me find the best prices we could at the time. Happy shopping!
Amazon Beach Bag & Goodies
In this bag we’ve included the top rated sunscreen, Supergoop!. And I love the 4-pack of hotel/resort style beach towels Abby found for us. I’m ordering those today. Another personal favorite is the Fuji instant camera. Abigail has one of these and we love using it to create photos that double as vacation souvenirs.
Walmart Beach Bag & Goodies
The Walmart beach bag items include my favorite sunless tanner. Sure, you wouldn’t necessarily take this to the pool or beach with you. But you’ll want to have it on for the bronzed glow. And I’ve found it doesn’t wear off splotchy with use. Bingo! Oh, and you’ll want to use the St. Tropez applicator mitt when putting it on.
Target Beach Bag & Goodies
When collecting items for the Target beach bag, Abby found this simple but fresh linen blend short sleeve dress that can take you from poolside to lunch. It’s showing up in the shopping widget as black, but it actually also comes in white, red, green and blue.
If you – or your daughter! – are a Gilmore Girls fan, you might want to check out Abby’s beach read recommendation, Someday, Someday, Maybe, by Lauren Graham. But I added my next book to the “store,” too. I’ll be reading Lynn Austin’s new book, Chasing Shadows. She’s my favorite Christian fiction author.
Thankyou for stopping in for today’s Beach Bag Bingo. I hope you found a little something to make your pool, lake or beach visit a little more enjoyable. Have a great summer day!

Blessed for My Day
Whenever I’m around my parents for an extended time, I start recollecting my growing up years. Sitting with them at meals and drinking coffee with them in the mornings, I’ve been reminded of what gentle people they both are. My daddy especially always speaks with a gentle voice. He was a good example to me of our heavenly Father’s tender love for His children.
But whether your earthly father was gracious and loving or not, you can trust that your heavenly Father is both kind and just. Yes, His standards are high and immovable. He is just in all His ways and He is also holy, holy, holy. But when we come to Him with humility and repentance, He is so good to always and consistently show us compassion and gentleness. I do hope your dad was an example of these character traits. But more importantly I hope that you’ve experienced the uncompromising compassion of our Creator.
As a father shows compassion to his children, so the Lord shows compassion to those who fear him. ~ Psalm 103:13
