Our new neighborhood pool opened up back in March, but it has only been warm enough to swim for about a month now. We have already taken the kids a few times and will basically be living there this summer. What better way to keep the kids busy and catch some sun rays than by enjoying a family swimming day? I get questions all the time about what I keep in my pool bag, so I thought it would be fun to share with you guys today!
What’s in my Pool Bag:
Book or Magazine
Mini cooler bag with ice and Coca-Cola™
Plastic bag for wet swimsuit
Change of clothes
Bandaids (just in case – they have been used before)
I usually keep my pool bag in the back of my car so I don’t have to worry about having towels and things when we decide to go for a last minute swim. I do bring it in to refill it with clean towels and clothes. I also always bring fresh snacks and classic Coca-Colas! The other day, when I stopped by CVS to pick up my vitamins, I grabbed a few ice cold Cokes and a Diet Coke for our pool day, and noticed that Share a Coke is back with over 1,000 new Share a Coke names! Not only do they have first names on them, they also have last names! How fun is that? Unfortunately, I could not find a “Logan,” so I was “Rebecca” for the day, and my husband did find a “Ryan” Diet Coke® so he was excited about that! I love to buy extras in case any of our neighbors are out there and would like one. CVS makes it easy to Share a Coke because you can get 2 Cokes for $3 with the CVS ExtraCare card, making it easy to share with your friends on your spontaneous summer road trips or lazy pool days!
Nothing screams summertime and pool days more than an ice cold Coke. When I do drink sodas, a classic Coca-Cola is always my choice. I guess I get it from my grandmother because for as long as I can remember, she has always ordered a “Coke” every time we go out to eat and she keeps them stocked in her refrigerator! It is the first thing I am offered when I go to their house for a visit! When I am laying by the pool I love to read and have my Coca-Cola by my side. Of course, these days, reading basically never occurs at the pool anymore because I have three babies to watch and splash around with.
I love picking up a few extra Coca-Colas when I see names of our friends or family! It is exciting to find the name of someone you know and it makes their day a little brighter when you Share an Ice Cold Coke with them that happens to have their name on it!
Stop by CVS to see if you can find your name or your friend’s name on an ice cold Coke! Don’t forget to take advantage of the CVS ExtraCare card 2 for $3 deal here!

This is such an interesting post! I tried to comment on the Instagram pic but it wouldn’t let me. This embroidered print is so in right now.

Not quite swimming weather yet, up here in New England, but I’ve started stocking up for my pool bag! My kids would love to find cold coca cola in the bag! We’ll see if I can find ones with their names on it 🙂

Every pool bag definitely needs Coke! It’s my fav drink–I’ve got it next to me right now. Also, I am obsessed with that hat!
