Target’s Fanny Pack Coolers
Claire Miles - May 22, 2020


By Greta Zwaan

I sought for joy in peace, and rest to ease my weary mind,
Stressed out by such a heavy load, rest I just had to find.
My endurance could hold no more, my limits had been met,
I needed time to stand aside, sweet time to just forget.

But where to find the road to peace, an obscure trait to me;
My hectic lifestyle can't comprehend a way to set time free.
I've always rushed from A to B with no side glace allowed,
I had my life so well controlled; in truth, I felt quite proud.

No one could tell me what to do, I was a self-made man;
My schedules were controlled by me, I had a thorough plan.
'Twas good when all things went my way and no one interfered;
I had no one to answer to, my way was always cleared.

But years of this brought me no joy, though fortunes I'd amassed;
It seemed that all the things I owned would oh, so soon be past.
I had no friends that knew my plight, I kept myself at bay,
They all had troubles of their own; besides, what could they say?

They envied me with all my wealth, they never saw my pain,
I had life altogether, what more was there to gain?
But loneliness is terrible and emptiness is sad,
There seems no purpose for each day, no reason to be glad.

So now I wait; why? I don't know, but life for me must change.
There must be more than fortunes, a way to rearrange.
There has to be a purpose, and someone surely knows,
Why life is complicated, and days so full of woes.

Perhaps you have the answer, perhaps you know the route,
Perhaps you've traveled here before; if so, please help me out.
If need be, I'll be patient, I'll even take advice;
I'll gladly make the changes, no matter what the price.

I don't need independence, I've had my round of that;
I long for understanding, to know just where I'm at.
Someday I hope to thank you because you saw my need,
Perhaps with greater meaning, with purpose, not with greed.

I don't know how I got here, what lies ahead of me,
I'm grateful there'll be changes, I'm grateful to be free.

Summer is right around the corner, and we really couldn’t be more excited after all those long winter months.  And thanks to Target, you can now enjoy the sunshine more than ever, staying both super stylish and cute, as well as hydrated (because what else do you really need in summer?). They’ve not only brought the nostalgic fanny pack back (or at least contributed to it), but they’ve also added a new twist to them – adding a cooler to these pouches! It really doesn’t get more epic than these all-new fanny pack coolers, and they are also super Instagram worthy. You won’t want to miss out. 



What’s even more exciting, however, is the fact that they cost less than $10, making them an affordable accessory to easily step up your game this summer.  Fanny packs have recently become more popular since they are small and convenient – allowing you to take your precious items with you and keep them safe without having to carry about a large annoying bag and hold it tightly, and are especially useful in the summertime when attending festivals, barbeques or pool parties.   But on top of all these advantages as well as the fact that it’s seriously in right now – once you add a cooler to these fanny packs, you’ve got yourself the ultimate summer staple.


The new line of fanny pack coolers by Target is known as the Sun Squad are come in fun summery prints such as palm trees and pineapples, and are the best way to keep your drinks cool on a hot day, and can either be delivered or purchased from any Target store (just make sure you follow the lockdown regulations). And if you’re less into the idea of carrying your drink on your waist? Well, Target still has you covered with some more conventional coolers that are also affordable and in style right now, that come in ultra-retro colors such as hot pink and neon yellow and appear to be a picnic basket! These will put you back $35.99 but are surely worth the investment.
