Grocery Cart Bag

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on January 27, 2009

 A friend of mine gave me this great new grocery bag! It’s “green,” holds up to 40 lbs of groceries, hooks onto the cart and made shopping a little more organized and simple this week. I asked Curtis (he is my favorite bagger at Kroger :) to just put the produce in the black bag.


I was able to get the groceries into the car faster. And then into the house faster. (A DEF benefit when it’s 15 degrees outside!) Yes, it weighed more 1 bag alone. But who carries in just one bag of groceries at a time!

And here are some new healthy snacks that we’ll be trying out soon and our new favorite snack here!

Those are fabulous aren’t they? I bought some at Home Depot for $0.99 each. Granted, they’re BRIGHT ORANGE, but hey, whatever works!

Never seen the kind that hook on the buggy. That is too cool!

Can your friend share where she got the black bag with grocery cart hangers?
Thanks,

I NEED one of those bags. I love my reusable bags…but I want one that hooks on the shopping cart. Please tell us where your friend found it. Thanks!

It’s cool, but alas, for me it would only work if I shop with my husband or one of my sons. I have to keep my bags light due to back problems. But boy, oh, boy, I wish I could use that–it’s awesome!

I’d love to know where you got the bag too. I’m so big on the “go green” bags for putting my groceries in, but to keep them organized in the cart would be an added bonus.

Thanks – Stacey

The Home Depot ones are not very good and only have two clips, I think, not four. They also won’t hold as much.
