I take it with me to the store, load it up when I get back and roll my groceries right into the elevator and directly into my kitchen to unload.

I'll have to tell others here who have carts the new name. They'll probably get a kick out of it.

I was thinking the same thing. Handiest item I ever bought, it allows me to walk to the grocery store.

I certainly consider a granny cart to be a "must have" item.

I want a Granny cart!!!!!! I walk during the week to go shopping and that would be great. Won't have to carry heavy packets. I only have my car on weekends, hubby's car is broken so he uses mine to get to work.

I was one given to me as a gift that you could pull like a suitcase. It had a tapestry outside and a lid that you could zipper closed. The inside was waterproofed. It also had outside pockets for little items. I loved it. I made the mistake of loaning it to a resident here and it was destroyed to the point of not even being able to repair it. Once again the urge to kill was so strong.

More snow!

MORE SNOW!!! I'm not sure how much we actually got because of the drifting, but I don't have to go to work today (school districts all closed), and when I was cleaning off cars this morning, there was a good 8 or 9 inches on the cars. It is 17 degrees right now, but the sun is shinning. It may not last a long time, but we do have a little more in the forecast. Sure was a long time coming this year! Love it!
