A Smart Idea

I got my Cart Smart bag in the mail yesterday. I can’t wait to try it out.

My cousin, Terry Utas, invented the Cart Smart. It’s an environmentally friendly bag with straps that hook over a shopping cart handle. The wide straps are set a comfortable distance apart so you rest your hands on it, not the icky cart handle.

It’s got some outside pockets for your cell phone, car keys, coupons, etc. and a main pocket deep enough to carry a purse, a few reusable shopping bags, or even some groceries if you’re only running in to get a few things.

It’s brilliant.

The carrying straps are just the right length to sling it comfortably on a shoulder and it rolls up for convenient storage.

As soon as I can I’ll take it out for a test run and get a picture to post here.

Interesting idea.

I never really thought about shopping cart handles and what must be residing on them after thousands of unwashed hands have gripped them.

But being too lazy to actually do anything to protect myself (and that probably includes buying/remembering a cart bag) I think I'll just go back to blissful oblivion and just try to remember to wash my hands occasionally.
