Between warmer weather and Covid-related precautions, summer is all about the outdoor gatherings. To me that means picnics and day drinking.
Enter Kmart, store of my heart, and their new must-have item: the Wine Carrier with Drink Dispenser. Aka, a really fancy goon sack that won’t make anyone look at you twice when you sneak it carry it out where it’s absolutely legal to do so.
The bag features a large main compartment with a bunch of pockets to carry all your picnic accessories (although apparently it’s not intended to carry your food. Then there’s a smaller insulated pocket with a removable bladder bag that fits inside it, and pokes out the side with a pouring spout.
It’s also pretty darn cute with its white and blue stripes, all for a very reasonable $25. I’ve bought picnic blankets for more than that. You can buy it here, but judging by how fast their other offers have sold out, you’d better get in quick.
While you’re there, you may as well nab yourself some new outdoor furniture from their super affordable and very cute summer collection.
The bag is a no brainer, sourcing the wine, however, is a much bigger question. Should you go organic wine (even though it doesn’t actually save you from a hangover like that urban legend would have you believe)? Maybe you should use it as an excuse to hit up all the amazing wine regions we have around the country — wine never tastes better than from the cellar door, right?
Either way, I need the bag. Please and thank you.
