NoBlo Umbrella Buddy
Every summer my family goes to the beach for a week or more, and every year we struggle with how to get our umbrellas (beach-sized, of course) to stay put. It never fails- it seems as if the wind just demands attention and refuses to leave my poor umbrella alone. New-found solution? The NoBlo Umbrella Buddy! Product was received for review purposes and this post may contain affiliate links.
This fantastic product allows you to fill the bag with the ever-present sand on the beach, and then tie the Velcro attachment to the top of the umbrella, above the rungs, so that the wind cannot run off with your precious (and often very large and expensive) umbrella! How awesome is that?!
Not only does this alleviate the hazard of a 6 ft wide umbrella flying across the beach, pummeling straight towards your (or someone else's) 5 year old, but it also lets you relax without worry. Also, consider how simple it is to fill the portable bag with the sand that is already there, and empty it out before you go home! No carrying and packing heavy sand bags for you!
I think my favorite part is knowing that a portion of the proceeds earned from each bag sold is donated to the United States Lifesaving Association, which is a total incentive in my opinion. You can find this item on the NoBlo website for around $15, in a variety of colors. Just think- something invented by moms, for moms.
