Both of my kids play soccer and my son also baseball. This means I spend a lot of time on the sidelines and in the bleachers during allergy season. What are my secrets to surviving this time of year without feeling miserable. Check out what’s in my purse to keep me feeling my best.

What’s In My Purse for Spring Sports Spectating


It’s important to keep hydrated all year long, but sitting in the sun while watching sports it’s especially important. According to WebMD, not being properly hydrated during allergy season may even lead to more frequent and more intense allergy symptoms. I love an insulated stainless steel bottle, which helps keep my water ice cold for hours.

Lip balm

I don’t go anywhere without lip balm with sun protection built in. A sassy scent like wild berry is one of my favorites. I hate nothing more than chapped lips. I keep an extra in my car too!

Cell Phone

Well, what mom doesn’t have her cell phone these days. It’s great for taking pictures and keeping in touch with my husband if he’s attending another game. A few game apps help keep my daughter entertained with my son is playing baseball. Many weather apps will help you check pollen counts to be prepared too!


It’s super important to protect your eyes with UVA/UVB blocking sunglasses. You’ll not only be protecting your eyes, but you will be able to see your kids better without the glare of the sun. I like the bonus of protecting the more delicate areas around my eyes.

Sunscreen or an umbrella

Of course sunscreen is super important as well. I bring a spray to make sure my kids playing the sport are protected. For me, I like a lighter lotion version. I wear makeup with SPF and protect any bare skin. For really hot days, I’ll sometimes bring a golf umbrella to protect my skin and keep cool.

Healthy snacks

Especially if you are at a game with a snack bar, pack your own healthy snacks so you are not tempted to buy unhealthy chips, hot dogs, etc. I always pack a protein bar and fresh fruit. If I have one of my kids on the sidelines, I’ll pack a mix of slightly sweet cereal with blueberries or raisins. Helps keep them from begging for snack bar candy.

FLONASE® Sensimist Allergy Relief

I was recently introduced to FLONASE® Sensimist Allergy Relief. I love it and always carry it my purse. This way, I have easy access to my daily dose in case I forget at home. I can also give a dose to my son if needed. The FLONASE® Sensimist spray provides a gentle, yet powerful mist to help allergy symptoms. My son and I both appreciate the more gentle mist and the short, less invasive spray nozzle.

I almost always forget to take water. Then I'm dying of thirst and cursing my forgetfulness! This is a great list for those spring sporting events!

I always keep allergy medicine in my purse like you do. You just never know when allergies are going to sneak up on you.

My daughter already got the first sunburn of the season so I know you can never be too prepared or careful. I will remember Flonase when the allergies kick in.
