Keeping track of my kids' summer essentials can be challenging. I don't want to hear, "Mom where are my goggles?" every day before swim team practice. A great organizational tool is a shoe organizer bag. Hang one in your garage or mudroom and fill the pockets with 

  • sunscreen, 
  • bug spray, 
  • goggles, 
  • Bandaids, 
  • sidewalk chalk, 
  • bubbles, and 
  • whatever else your kids use on a daily basis. 

That way you'll have everything at hand. For older kids, have them put their items back in the pockets when they get home It's a great way for children to learn to keep track of their stuff and take responsibility!
