WeekendCoffeeShare: The Most Asked Question at the Grocery Store

Good morning! Have you been to the Saturday Market this morning? Strawberries are in! Yeah! They look so yummy! So, would you like strawberries and whipped cream followed with a french roast? I think that would hit the spot!

Have you seen my Green GrabBags? When I am at the grocery store, there is not a day that goes by, that I am not asked about the green GrabBags, that fit so nicely in my cart. It really is so handy! The two sides of the bag stretch to fit on the sides of the cart and clip on, keeping the bags open. I fill them and fill them . They hold a lot. (This week I didn’t need so much) I sort the groceries exactly the way I want them sorted too. When I get to the check out, the clerk takes every thing out of one bag and rings it up and then puts everything back in the bag, before she rings up the next bag. Four GrabBags will fit in the cart, but today I just needed two. I am showing you one bag still hooked and open on the cart, and the other bag is ready to close up.

This is how the bags look when I place them in my car. The closing tab is velcro so the bag will remain closed for the ride home.

This is how the bag folds up neat and tidy after my groceries are put away! Best things evah! Get them on Amazon! But, be warned, the women will stop and ask you, “Where did you get those bags!”

Well that’s my “short and sweet” for this weekend. What have you been up to? Let me know!

    Interesting and very useful bags, I’m off to check them out at Amazon. The checkout assistants in our stores wouldn’t do what yours does though – we unload everything from the cart onto the conveyor, the assistant scans them and pushes them down to the holding area and we pack our own bags. I prefer it that way though, at least if I pack my own bags I know that heavy items aren’t going to land on top of the eggs, which has happened on the rare occasions when an assistant has ‘helped’! 😦

    1. Yes we don’t bag our own groceries, as a rule, in most grocery shops in the US! I’m like you though I like certain things grouped together! Our check out people are efficient at getting things together so they don’t break, especially when I go to the same person every week. They get to know how you like your stuff!

    How cool, I can see how that would be convenient, and that ladies ask you about it. I always bring my own bags, but not fancy ones like these 🙂 Have a wonderful weekend!

        Thank YOU 🙏 yes, I do a lot of gardening, along with homeschooling my daughter. I have tomatoes, cucumber, egg plant, squash, spinach, a variety of salad greens, garlic, kitchen herbs, corn, fig trees, and pomegranate trees.

      2. Oh yes, now I remember who you are! Just moved to a bigger plot haven’t you?
        And you are a real gardener compared to me! I try to remember bloggers by their names rather than having to go back and look them up! Sometimes I’m better at that then I was today! Good to hear from you!

    They are cool bags. I use Market Basket (local grocery store) branded bags even when I go to other stores.

    I can see why you love your bags, they are super cool and I’m defiantly up for some strawberries and French roast. I am lucky enough to have a son that works part time at a local farm/produce market so he usually brings home the freshest crops. Strawberries are up so I’m waiting for his next work day. Here in New Jersey, we wait excitedly for the tomato crops and the peaches as well. Delicious!!

    1. Oh yeah I am ready for peaches too! We like to drive just over the state line to SC to a big peach stand there that sells everything peaches when the peaches come in! They even have a peach restaurant!

  8. Hello – and I agree. Those are a cool idea. Well thought out and they look very well constructed. We’re in Northern Calif. and after a very long and weird winter, spring is finally here and some wonderful produce is arriving in our stores. Anyway, so you know something about me; I write 10 minute autobiographical stories of growing up about an hour north of San Francisco, in a much smaller town – Petaluma. They are meant to be fun and I hope you’ll check out my coffee chat and a story or two. Hope to see you for coffee next week. Warmest regards, Gary

      1. Hmmm. That is strange, but I’ll check it out. As a new blogger I may have made a mistake in setting things up.
        Did you see my home page okay – it’s set up with an index into my collection?

      3. Okay. I’m on it. Wil find someone nearby to show me. All my logins show me “my view” which doesn’t look like what you see. Thanks so much for calling this out. I have a couple of followers so must have broken it somewhere along the line.
        As a traveler, I invite you to check out my “Unforgettable Anniversary ” story. My wife & I ended up in Berlin and stumbled into history. I hope to leave you smiling in 10 minutes or less.
