How To Keep Grocery Bags From Tipping

Every week when we go grocery shopping, we load the bags in the back and I carry the fragile ones up front with me while Gerard drives. Invariably, at the first turn he makes, the bags topple over or shift. Not anymore! Gerard actually came up with a very good solution. No, not to take the turns slower, but to bring along some boxes to put the bags in when we load them. I can even trust the eggs and my salad to ride safely in the back unattended now. It works beautifully and also makes it easier to carry them inside when we unload. Great idea, honey!

What good idea has your spouse come up with? We'd love to hear them!

Good idea Gerard! A recent idea my husband has come up with is to use an extra plastic recycling bin we have as a step for Sadie to get into our SUV. She had a hard time getting up there before but now she just steps on the flat bottom of the recycling bin and then right up into the vehicle. Plus the bin can be used to hold her water jug and other items in the back so they don't roll around on our trip.

Oh I have SUCH a problem with bags tipping over! Gerard's idea is brilliant! Although, when I usually shop, it's for 6 people for the next 2 weeks... so the entire hatch is filled-- crammed-- with bags, which *kind of* keeps things from tipping. LOL

The boxes is a great idea!

That is a great idea! I always wanted cargo netting installed in my trunk, but they want something like $500 to install it. Boxes are way cheaper! Thank Gerard for us!
