Today, as I do on many occasions, I walked to the grocery store.
Halfway there As soon as I walked out of the garage I knew it was a mistake, but stubborn me decided to forge ahead anyway. I should have gotten in the car and just drove there; however, I just can’t stand driving two blocks just to go grocery shopping, especially because I have this awesome cart.
Why should I have driven? Because it was noon-thirty and nearly 100 degrees out! I should have realized it was too hot. By the time I arrived at the store, I was a sweaty mess.
Oh well, I got the shopping done ($2 under my planned budget thankyouverymuch!) came home, unloaded the groceries, and cooled off.
What about that cart? Oh, it’s awesome. It’s perfect for my weekly shopping trip. It’s a Bag Buddy Cart. I did a review of this product more than two years ago and I STILL love it! Unfortunately, it doesn’s look like you can get one because the original website is down and I can’t seem to find it anywhere.
However, I can tell you that this cart is my true best shopping friend. It is a VERY RARE occasion that I don’t take it to the grocery store with me. I only don’t take it when I’m just getting 1 bag of food (which rarely never happens) or when I know I’m going to be getting way MORE than will fit in here.
Usually if I need more than will fit, I just drive my car. Again, I just find it so wrong to drive to a store that is literally two blocks away. By the time I get in the car, start it, and drive to the store, I practically can walk there!
While walking today, it dawned on me that there IS a way that I can still walk when I am getting more than my usual. We have a foldable wagon we picked up ages ago at Costco, I could easily take that and it would fit the larger amounts…but please don’t tell my Bag Buddy because I don’t want to hurt his feelings. He is so awesome!
Do you walk to the store?
Do you have a cool cart?
