The Best Beach Bag Ever: IKEA Beach Bag GIVEAWAY

Feast your eyes upon a miracle. This flat, little, 13″ x 9″ rectangle unfolds into the Biggest, Best Beach Bag ever!  What? You doubt me? I must remind you that others have deemed me a beach professional. So on the count of 3 we’ll unfold it together . . . 1 . . .2 . . .3 . . .

Behold, it’s a miracle! That flat rectangle unfolds into a giant 22″ x 13″ x 14″ bag! Otherwise know as the Biggest, Best Beach Bag ever! Everywhere I go people comment, “Wow, that is a beach bag! Where did you get it?” IKEA of course!

I purchased my first IKEA bag almost 15 years ago. It has literally traveled the world with me and it is still going strong. It folds into that tiny, flat rectangle making it easy to fit into luggage.

After the kiddos came along, it was time to purchase another IKEA bag for all of their junk beach toys. It’s quite amazing how much stuff an IKEA bag can hold!

I think Our Man of Steel sometimes wishes our IKEA bags didn’t carry so much darn stuff. But then again, we never have to make more than one trip to the beach! We usually pack two bags when heading to the beach. I pack one bag with all of our dry items: towels, snacks and books. The kiddos pack a second bag with all of their beach toys.

When we get to the beach the toys come tumbling out. It reminds me of Marry Poppins’ bag. You never know what the kids might pull out of there. And yes, when you vacation at the beach during the off season, you can take up the entire beach!

When browsing my beach photos, I was surprised to see how many pictures include a glimpse of our IKEA beach bags.

HMMMMM, I think we might have to take out the boogie board and carry Miss Enigma back to the condo in the bag. She could easily fit in there. Life at the beach is so totally exhausting!

The IKEA bags are very easy to clean. Dump out all of the sand. Spray with a water hose and you’re ready to go!

Can’t make it to IKEA? No worries, I made the drive for you . . .

This would be so useful to take toys, snacks, and baby essentials to the park! Thanks for the chance to win!

The library! We can never fit all of the books we want into the very large back I usually carry. Lately, we’ve been taking a crate, but it’s not as easy to carry as a bag.

I went to IKEA in Atlanta for the first time a few weeks ago and it was so much fun! I’m glad it isn’t closer, though, because I could easily spend too much money there.

We go to the beach almost everyday so it would probably stay packed with sandy beach toys

Tara H June 14, 2012 at 10:42 am

Oh goodness, with 5 boys I’m sure we would take it everywhere! :)

Jessica June 14, 2012 at 3:33 pm

I would take it everywhere. It seems like I’m never home and never have what I need.

Lianne S. June 14, 2012 at 3:41 pm

That bag would be perfect for the waterpark!

Sabrina Caines June 15, 2012 at 1:43 pm

I would use this bag to haul of our stuff to the lake when we go fishing!

I’d take it to the soccer park! Looks like it could carry all the things we need over there.
