Over the Shoulder Grocery Bags

A better way of carrying groceries
  [vote for,

People usually have trouble carrying several plastic grocery bags, they can be pretty heavy and end up hurting your hands, I think there might be a better way, this product is about plastic grocery bags that have really long handles so you can carry them with your shoulders like a purse, this should make things easier and make your hands not hurt.

       The canvas bags that they sell for $0.50 to $2.00 at various stores can be carried over the shoulder, though they tend to wear out where the handles attach after doing this a few times. I fear this problem would be even worse with plastic bags.

       Like my cloth reusable bags?

       You carry your own shopping ? How bizarre. What are the chauffeur and footmen doing while you're lugging bags around ?

       It's a fad, [8th] - work out in the streets instead of in the gym.   

       The chauffeur will pick you up once you’ve carried the load past the fashionable neighbourhood’s front windows.

       Once in Mexico I saw a young boy carrying a load of wood. It was in a blanket tied to his head and hung down his back. Walking uphill, he carried more wood in this pouch-style than I could in 4 armloads. Maybe head carrying is the way to go?

       the only remaining test of manhood is to carry $278 worth of shopping in bags carefully arranged in circulation-destroying fashion up the arms. You want to remove this?

       Called a "tumpline" and Widely Known To Exist (and also be very efficient and effective)   

       The Canadian's assault on Vimy Ridge would not have been possible without the outstanding, yet largely unremarked, contribution of their tumpline porterage companies.

       At Google enter shopping bag grips and look at images.   

       Many styles of grips are available and they will save your hands until you can get the stores to provide your shoulder style bags. Leave the grips in the car or you'll never remember to bring them shopping.
