'Tis the season for going to the beach. With all this hot weather, the beach is on the minds of many. However, one of the worst things about going to the beach is that sand gets everywhere. Also, what do you do with your valuables when you go in the water? What about an easy way to waterproof your phone? Here are some tips and tricks to make going to the beach a little bit easier.

I must say, the plastic bag trick from the video is great. Placing your cellphone in a plastic sandwich bag to keep water from getting in is great. I use this trick all the time. I recommend keeping a few plastic bags in your car. That way, no matter what, you can keep your phone safe from water--you never know when you will be stuck in a downpour.
