I don’t need any stinkin’ hook!
I regularly carry:
• in my left hand: 10-12 plastic shopping bags of groceries, and
• in my right hand: 4-5 bags plus a 2.5gal water jug.
… and I’ll turn 60 years old this month.
I never understand these sort of one-purpose doo-dads. If the idea is to keep it stashed in your trunk (because, let’s face it, who’s gonna remember to bring along their lil’ hook-thing when they go shopping if it’s not already there), then you have to bring it back out after you’ve hauled everything inside,which kinda defeats the whole one-trip thing, right?
They’re intended to carry all kinds of things, multiple paint cans, tools etc. When I’m going on a big grocery trip there’s other planning that goes into it so bringing this along isn’t a problem. It’s actually a pretty useful thing to have around.
Get a canvas tote bag. Get three and your done. Yes it’s $90, but they will last a lifetime, it’s eco, and you can use them for a load of other things. These suckers are built like tanks. Also, since they are big and strong, you can put more in them rather than carrying a ton of small plastic bags. (Unless you’re buying groceries for a family of 4+ then you’ll need more) http://www.landsend.com/pp/large-natural-open-top-canvas-tote-bag~232439_-1.html
I second this method. I bought three reusable canvas bags (from Ralph’s) for $2.99 each, probably not as high quality as Eric’s, but I easily fit 2 weeks worth of groceries in them at a time. There’s also the benefit of being green and less baggage. That being said, I used a carabiner like the ones pictured before I bought my bags, worked great.
Studies are showing that canvas bags can carry E. coli. So if canvas is your choice, make sure you are washing them regularly.
Maybe the person should attack his laziness by doing Deadlifts, squats, power cleans and farmer’s walks
It’s more about awkward carrying than strength. Even with the clip we’re carrying the same amount of weight so working out doesn’t change anything.
