Every Tuesday, we’ll be bringing you short videos featuring some of your favorite bloggers, asking them about their “must-haves” for different life events. We’re calling this feature “Talk to Me Tuesday”.


The goal is to lean on their experience in the hopes of improving your everyday living (the great part is, they don’t mind if you steal their secrets!).

Our first episode features Maria Ramos from ASavingsWow.com. After a recent trip to Six Flags Great America with her family, she’s sharing her theme park must-haves with us today:

In case you missed any of Maria’s tips in the video, here they are (with links to her must-haves in each category):

Maria’s Top 3 Theme Park Must-Haves

1. Sack Pack

Bring one (or more) portable sackpacks to keep your belongings secured when walking around the theme park and on rides.

Maria’s pick: Adidas Alliance II Sackpack 

2. Lightweight Jacket

Bring a lightweight jacket, especially if you stay until closing when the weather starts to get chillier.

Maria’s pick: The North Face Waterproof Packable Venture 2 Jacket

3. Sunglasses

Bring a pair of sunglasses to protect your eyes while you’re standing in line for rides.

Maria’s pick: Michael Kors JAN Sunglasses
