Everyone needs a great beach bag for the summer, but how much do you really want to spend on something that’s going to get wet and sandy? Only heiresses need $2,250 beach bag — the rest of us are better off with something for way less. We scoured the web for bags that are stylish, functional and affordable and more importantly, $25 or less! Start clicking to find the perfect one for you.

1. Straw totes are lightweight and easy to clean up. Pick up New York & Company’s bucket tote , $15, or this adorable woven sea grass carryall with scarf detailing, $25, from the Gap.

2. We love how earthy and island inspired bamboo handles are. Try Old Navy’s rattan handle bag, $20, or this cheerful Forever 21 yellow flower bag , $18.

3. Bold stripes are always easy to spot on a crowded beach. Delia’s Melissa bag, $20, is sweet and nauticul or go for traditional with Old Navy’s Flo Pink striped pattern canvas bag, for only $15.
