That's a felony in some areas. You might want to check with the store first.

I used to walk to the store living at my previous address. I had small kids at the time and would take the wagon. I was great for hauling the groceries home. I was probably a sight walking with my wagon loaded with groceries, the 5 year old holding my hand and the toddler in the backpack!

I miss living in a community where there were fresh produce/meat markets in practically every street corner. You picked up items for that day's cooking only...
There were no need picking up a week's worth of groceries at super-markets.

Not only that, but markets in this area are now installing devices that cause the wheels of their carts to lock if they're taken beyond the perimeter of the parking lot.

No one would dare take a shopping cart from the premise in my part of the hood in fear of getting deported.....

When my daughter was a baby and we lived in England, I used to walk to the store and use her pram...it was built like a mac truck with great springs. Did surprise a few people who stopped to admire the "baby." Later on in life, I spent about a year going to the store with my bike, that had cargo baskets over each side of the back wheel. I could get one big grocery bag in each one, and the only problem was balancing the weight. I once had to split a 10 pound bag of potatoes....you can do this. And you will have such a great sense of accomplishment!

A light weight fold able cart would work well. We take one when we go to the city, or china town. You could bring a collapsible cooler with an ice pack to store the freezer items in. When I get in line to pay at the store I strategically place certain items together so they will bag them together, such as lunch meat, cheese and milk. Then I put the bread at the end with any light snacks like goldfish or crackers so it wont get smushed by soda cans or anything. These things work for me so I hope they will work you you as well.

I used to have a triailer for my bike which would have been ideal for fetching the shopping home in.
