Pack-N-Tote Grocery Cart helper bags

Jul 20, 2007

Paper or Plastic? How about neither? In an effort to monitor more of what I'm bringing into my home, I've been looking for a way to slow down the consumption of all the disposable plastic/paper bags that are so easy to accumulate. I've seen many of these reusable totes and bags, but most are designed for small purchases and more appropriate for pedestrian situations. Living in suburban So Cal, the birthplace of car culture, I need something that can hold more and that can stand up well in the car...

In my searching, I found this bag that seems like it has potential. The Pack-N-Tote Grocery Cart helper bag is designed with both the function of holding groceries, as well as how to transport them. Two bags can fit nicely into a normal shopping cart. There are velcro tabs to secure it in place. The bags have an accordian design to fold down, so you can leave them in your car. When you get to the grocery store, grab a cart, open up and secure the bags, do your shopping, and then easily transport them back to the car and return the empty cart. There is a hard bottom which keeps the bags from tipping over while driving. The bag is also adjustable to the size of the load (each bag holds up to 40 pounds which is quite a lot!) $8.95.
