Well Indie (and everyone else who shares her dilemma), here’s your solution.
Indie said, “I have 3 kids in a third floor apartment and I’m cursing myself for buying shopping bags that I can’t carry on my shoulder.”
I’m happy to say that I cannot take credit for the solution to this dilemma.
In addition to her comment, Meredith sent me a pic of herself carrying the ‘A Better Bag’ from Whole Foods over her shoulder.
In addition, she says:
“The Whole Foods Better Bag is the only “grocery specific” bag I’ve found that works over the shoulder. It has a very nice feel that seems more durable than the bags from Kroger and Target.”
Besides this one from Whole Foods, the cheapest ones I’ve found are $6.95.
