Beach Towel Blues
A few years ago, I invested in a dozen french blue beach towels to create a color coordinated look by the lake. This year, when the sun threatened to shine, I pulled out my beach towels, and realized I no longer have any of those towels, not a single one!! Instead, I own a collection of towels, that display a random mix of colors and patterns. Not quite the aesthetic I had envisioned, but I decided I needed to make it work.
When I came across this collapsible “Rio” storage hamper at Cost Plus World Market I knew I had found the solution to my beach towel blues. Look what a difference it makes when these towels are tucked away in the bag.
This hamper will be an out of sight way to store the towels year round. It would also be great for stowing pillows, off season bedding or throw blankets.
I love the beachy look of the bag, and the fact that it’s made of from 60-70% recycled polypropylene. The hamper is very lightweight, and the sturdy nylon handles allow one to tote a load with ease. A wooden toggle secures the flap. At $17.99 each I bought a few extras.
