BEACH GEAR THE QUICK FIX

- BY LESLIE CORONA

If a tsunami of boogie boards and sun chairs has taken over the garage, tidy your seaside supplies with these tips.

Just divide everything by size.

LITTLE THINGS: Stash buckets, shovels, and floaties in mesh laundry bags hung from hooks or nails in the garage or on a covered patio. The mesh lets sand fall out and items dry so they don’t get mildewy.

TALLER ITEMS: Corral beach umbrellas and pool noodles in corners or between exposed studs with the help of bungee cords. Place one cord at about knee height and one around shoulder height. If the item is particular­ly tall or heavy, add a third in the middle.
