I’m notorious for destroying phones. One time, I went through something like 5 in a year. Don’t judge me. Things happen–you drop one here, have one stolen there, or send them swimming in a bubble bath (yes, the bowl of rice trick will work if you immediately power off your phone). . . . I got the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 a year ago and shattered–yes, shattered–the screen 3 weeks after I got it. That was a personal record.
I always get insurance on my phones, but insurance is expensive! My deductible is $100–definitely nothing bright on a budget about that. So I’m always looking for ways to protect my phone that don’t involve spending $80 on a protective case. Especially something to protect my phone while at the pool and beach (!) this summer.
Enter this sweet little contraption from Avon. It’s called the Beach Carry-All Case. Not only is it waterproof, but it also allows you to use your phone while it’s in the case! How great is that?!
|The top has 2 ziplocks on it to keep the inside waterproof.|
My phone is HUGE but still fits in this case, so an iPhone or Galaxy S would definitely fit in the case no problem. While I wish the clear portion was larger, that’s just a liability of having a big phone.
|Once you’ve sealed both ziplocks, you fold down that portion and button the snaps.|
|Disclaimer: I really don’t have 63 unread messages. I see them pop up at the top |
of my screen, read them, and then it just doesn’t clear. I’m too lazy to manually
I also like how the case has a strap that will let you wear it around your neck or crossbody. I like to wrap the strap a couple of times, though, to where it’s more like a wristlet.
|I wrap the straps around before I fold down the top portion, so it stays in place!|
This case is a BRIGHT must-have for summer! Great way to protect your phone on a budget! I feel much safer about taking my phone on vacation and to the pool since I have this!
UPDATE: The Avon Beach Carry-All case can be purchased for $9.99 here. If you’re interested in seeing what else Avon has, check out my friend Amy’s Avon website here.
