31 Days to Surviving Sports Seasons Sanely: Water Bottles & Wine Bags

Oops. Forgot the picture! 
I already told you about my unrecommended practice of keeping purchased water bottles in my van.  


Here is what I’m doing to not need those. Each of us has a distinct water bottle. There are five us and they easily fit in one wine bag. I've bought these inexpensively for just $1 in the past.


The past few years I’ve had the children prepare their own water bottles and take them to the van then to the field. We’ve gone back to the van at least a third of the time because the water bottle was left. The more often things get set down the more likely they’ll be left behind.

I’m trying to drink more water these days, so hoping that my own water consumption will jog my memory to bring all five water bottles in the wine bag to the field.  This bag will need to go by the front door and either next to my purse in the car or with the chairs in the back of the van.

  1. Great idea! I did not know these types of bags existed. I'll have to ask hubby to look for one next time he is at TJ's.

    1. I'm sure they still have them, but am unsure what price they are now. He may need to go through the wine section.

  2. This is sooo smart! I love simple solutions. I love wine too, so it's a win/win ;)

    1. Completely agree. The only problem is that it can be heavy to carry. But that's why we have children to do the heavy lifting, yes?
