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 
  • bandages 
  • sidewalk chalk
  • bubbles
  • 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!
