How To: Make a Super Cheap Floating Beer & Soda Pool Cooler

Make a Super Cheap Floating Beer & Soda Pool Cooler

Being in a cool pool on a hot day—it doesn't get much better than that, right? Well, unless you also have some ice-cold drinks to go along.

But getting in and out of the pool to grab a drink form the soda cooler or beer chest can be extremely annoying, especially if you have to grab drinks for everyone in the swimming pool.

Yeah, you can keep the cooler near the pool, but what's even better? Taking it in the pool with you. All you need is a few foam noodles, waterproof rope, and large-lipped container or sorts.
