Life Made Easier with CleverMade

Thanks to CleverMade for sponsoring this post – as always, all thoughts and opinions expressed are entirely my own.

This past weekend was absolutely perfect. We had the most beautiful weather and as a result, we spent the majority of the weekend at the beach.

Now, I don’t want to make you too jealous ;) but we live about 15 minutes away from the beach and we try to escape there whenever we can.

This past Friday was such a beautiful day, but it was chillier than what we usually experience in March. We opted for a beach picnic instead of going into the water. I’m seriously so glad we had our CleverMade SnapBasket cooler with us!


In the past, we usually would bring two smaller coolers that never fit everything we needed them to. The SnapBasket Cooler is the largest cooler we’ve ever owned – yet still so light and easy to carry. We love how spacious it is and that we were able to fit everything we needed to bring. The SnapBasket Cooler is able to carry up to 50 cans of your favorite drink plus ice! It keeps iced drinks cold for up to 36 hours; it’s seriously perfect for beach trips and picnics (two of our favorite things!) 

At the end of a long beach day, the last thing you want to carry (among everything else you have to load back into the car) are clunky, empty coolers. My favorite thing about the SnapBasket Cooler is that it’s collapsible! After taking out all of your drinks and food, just dump out your ice and you can easily collapse it into a flat position. It makes it so easy to carry back to the car and even easier for storage at home!

While we used the SnapBasket cooler for our picnic, you can easily use it to carry anything you’d like! CleverMade also offers a LaundryCaddy, insulated tote bags and collapsible crates!

I’m so thankful for their products that make this mama’s hectic life a little easier and I know you’ll fall in love with them!

P.S. Be on the lookout for a giveaway I’m doing with CleverMade on Instagram – there will be 3 winners!
