That's hilarious! I wonder if a babbling toddler lives in that house!

That used to be me, Aunt Bea.

Then again, there's this:

Folding Shopping Cart, Black - Walmart.com

Now I roll my groceries home. Much easier on my old achy body.

I have thought about this but wonder what you do with it when reaching the supermarket. Do you carry it around with you with the shopping trolley or what?

There is usually a hook on the front side of it to hang onto your shopping cart. Then when you get to the checkout, you put a paper bag into cart and as they get checked by the checkout girl, you can put your groceries in the bag. It is a handy thing to have. Some use it here in the building I live in to bring their laundry downstairs to the laundry room. Well worth the money for those who walk to or around their grocery store.

Ah...well, I am in UK..that paper bag method by the checkout girl doesn't happen here. However, I guess the hook idea could work; I usually place my shopping bag on this (that has stuff from other shops). Haven't noticed anyone using this for their own shopping cart though which is why I asked.

If I have bags from other shops, I put them in the child's seat. And then I would hang the little cart on the front of the shopping cart. It is really a handy cart to have around. You would be surprised how many things you would use for. The one I had came with a think liner and a cover that zipped close to protect your groceries from the rain. Then I made the mistake of loaning it out to a relative. Goodbye Cart! She overloaded it and broke the two sets of wheels on it.

I call that a "granny wagon". I have used them for decades. I often ask a cashier if she or he minds if I leave it at the cash while I shop.
