This may be the one time when carrying extra baggage is a good thing.
We’re only 10 days out until Memorial Day, aka the unofficial kickoff of beach season. And unless your poolside gear managed to stay squeaky clean in spite of all the salt water and sand last year, and I find that highly unlikely, a beach gear update is in order. Because who wants to tote around their beach reads, sunscreen and backup bikinis in a faded, sticky old beach bag? Beach please—nobody! You deserve an upgrade, and an upgrade you’ll get.
That being said, there’s no need to dish out serious dough on a beach bag. That extra cash, my friends, should be saved for actual trips to the beach or anywhere else on your summer 2016 bucket list. You’ll need plenty of cool places to show off that cool new tote, after all.
In the spirit of saving sans compromising, I present to you these five fabulous beach bags under $50. Really, they’re bright, colorful and will absolutely be an asset to your beachside Instagrams. Now what are you waiting for? Start accumulating some baggage, folks!
