If you haven’t yet taken the time to explore an Aldi, here’s one thing you should know: Each week, new batches of seasonal decor and storage items hit store shelves, offering some of the best deals around. The discount supermarket has been on a summer essentials streak, with adorable yet affordable gems, like these flamingo cups, that grab shoppers’ attention. Among the newest products is the versatile Crane Haul It All Pouch Set that makes packing for any summertime activity breezy and transparent (literally).

The set consists of two lightweight zippered pouches: a larger catch-all and a smaller coin purse-sized option. It comes in three complementary designs: orange (clear with an orange hem), summer (a pattern of beach balls, watermelons, and ice pops with a yellow hem), and teal (a pattern of abstract teal and white flowers with a teal hem). 

Aptly named, the $5 pouches can virtually hold any beach or pool must-have that’s likely to get lost at the bottom of a tote. The big bag is perfect for containing sunscreen tubes, sandwiches, snacks, and phones that would otherwise get sandy or wet. Use the small pouch for loose belongings such as spare change, lip balm, and hair ties. They can both be reused and cleaned out as desired.

But wait, there’s more: The Haul It All pouches are designed to attach to the Crane Haul It All tote, which is available in four bold shades: teal, periwinkle, pink, and orange. If you’ve ever wanted to own the bag equivalent of Crocs, this large and durable $23 gem would be it. Durable, eclectic summer-style staples and weekly groceries in one Aldi trip? Yes, please. 

If you can’t hunt down the pouch set at your local Aldi, Amazon has these cute travel pouches for $16. Whichever you pick will be the summer travel buddy you never realized you needed.
