NEXT time you are planning a visit to the beach, pack a rug that is so small it can fit in tour back pocket.
If you are short on space, this £15 item that has been highly praised on Amazon.
Traditional picnic blankets are bulky and take up a lot of space even when they’re folded.
But the pocket rug folds down and packs away neatly into a tiny pouch, so it can, as the name suggests, fit in your pocket.
The pocket rug, by Odoland, is a waterproof, heatproof, sandproof ground sheet, designed to keep users dry and comfortable when they sit on the grass, sand or forest floor – making it a perfect addition to any camping trip, beach break or picnic.
There are sizes ranging from one person to three people, depending on the size of your group but they start from just £9.99 on Amazon.
The pouch has a clip on it so the rug can be attached to a rucksack where it will be easily accessible.
The rug was given 4.4 out of 5 stars on Amazon and has received rave reviews from people who have tried it out.
Although the blanket is large and the pouch is only “half the size of a paperback book”, people it was “easy to fold and pack back up”.
One person wrote: “This little pocket blanket is fab – lightweight, easy to unfurl and very easy to fold and pack back up. Well worth the money.”
Someone else put: “This is great on the basis that it folds up so small you can put it in your pocket or stow it easily in a small rucksack. When in the bag, it’s about half the size of an average paperback book.”
Another put: “Would recommend for picnics on damp grass – my white trousers were still perfectly white.”
Parents have also praised a clever beach item that makes trips with the family so much easier.
Called the Mac Sports Beach Wagon cart, it has thousands of five-star reviews on Amazon, with many praising it for holidays at the beach.
The wagon, which is fully collapsible for storing in the car, can hold up to 150 pounds, meaning families can take all of their essentials to the sand without carrying heavy bags.
One review said it was “one of the best purchases I have ever made on Amazon”.
And this £17 item has won fans among families if you want to stop your things from getting sandy.
