I still have my Mom's, even though I never use it. We lived within walking distance to a nice, 1950's shopping center that had three! grocery stores when we moved there in 1957. She used to call it her Polish Cadillac!

lol, i love it! gotta tell dw (who's half polish) that one. in fact, i think we still have her mom's last one in the basement.
there are so many little old ladies in housecoats and babushkas in my neighborhood that use those things that are doggone determined to get where they are going it's incredible! damn the traffic and the torpedoes: full speed (shuffling) ahead!

more power to them.

I like that!

I think it would also be great for laundry day.

Where I live I would need a llama!

It is three flights of stairs (39 steps) to the laundry room or two flights of stairs (26 steps) to the street! I enjoy living here but it was not the wisest move I ever made!

Love the word babushka, and another one I haven't heard in a long time is galoshes.

No elevator? I would be forever confined to my apartment if we didn't have an elevator.

I do use it for laundry. I found a laundry bag that opens up to a tall square. It's made with net.

I use it for my laundry basket, then when it's full, pop the filled laundry basket into my cart. It's just the right size for a load in the top loader washer. Luckily for me there is a laundromat on premises here.

If you do get one, make sure it has a hook that goes over the grocery store cart. Not the little plastic hook that just holds it closed.

This is my second one. The last one had the grocery cart hook, but I didn't know that they don't all have them and although I like this one a lot, I have a terrible time hooking it up to the cart using an old laptop case strap.

What I do like about this one is that it is larger, and the front wheels swivel.

I bought it through Walmart online. They have the best shipping prices and are reliable.

All my furniture was Walmart that I had to put together. Much easier to have them delivered to my home where I could assemble them than wrestle with getting them home from the store.

Fond memories of a cart just like that. Growing up, we lived on an island in the summer, and would go to the mainland by boat to shop and do laundry, always with the cart.

I am sitting at the wellness clinic having my vitamin iv cocktail. This is my 2nd last treatment before we leave. I can't believe it's one week tomorrow!
