The summer months are full of outdoor ongoings and we find ourselves at picnics, parties and big events such as firework displays and concerts.
To ensure your trusty picnic blanket doesn't get wet from the grass, try tossing a shower curtain in your bag as well. They're inexpensive and will make sure everyone goes home clean and more importantly dry!
If you're headed to a place that won't allow in chairs, a blanket is a great substitution, but after a full day of hanging out on one, the bottom can become stained or overly wet if the friendly patrons behind you spill their drinks. Keep a shower curtain handy to act as an additional layer of protection.
You could of course skip the blanket all together and just carry the plastic which in a pinch could also double as a killer poncho! Check out more ideas for reusing a shower curtain over at Woman's Day.
