Mesh Shopping Cart by reisenthelÂ®
Farmer'sMarket Travel and On and On
This cart is very well designed. I've even taken it on the airplane. I usually take it when I go on a walk to the Farmer's Market and others seem envious because I can easily stow and purchase heavier items that I wouldn't ordiarily lug through the market like a bottle of olive oil, organic onions, etc. I love the outside zipper pocket where I can store my cell phone, change, keys, etc. as well as the loop that unhooks on the top where I can attach a tote bag or purse. It's very lightweight and easy to manuver even when empty or full. the large rear wheels make it handle well on uneven pavment and sidewalks too.

Awesome for the Disabled
Just purchased this item for my disabled sister who needs to use a shuttle bus to get to grocery stores. Folding up and light-weight, she is able to handle this item despite her stroke that took her right side. Once filled with groceries, the shuttle driver is able to get it back on the bus, then to her assisted living apartment with complete mobility! Light-weight yet rugged, I highly recommend this cart for any use ... shopping, laundry, long-walking mobility across campuses, etc. The price point is good for such a versatile item! Thanks Container Store for offering quality and variety at good value pricing!

I love it, but
I have owned two of these carts. I am a teacher, and use this daily to carry things from my car into school. It holds so much! My only complaint is that one of the wheels eventually comes off of the cart after 7-8 months of use. I spoke to the store manager about this issue and was told that this does happen after many months of heavy use. Despite this, I will continue to purchase this cart because it it so ideal for my uses.

Before Bring Your Own Bags
I have owned this shopping cart for a while now. Mostly, I use it to food shop. The pros are that it's lightweight & in black, it's a bit more stylish than your typical metal shopping cart. Before the bag tax, it was pretty easy to just loosen the drawstrings & drop in my plastic shopping bags. Now that the bag tax is in effect where I live, I have more structured, reusable shopping bags & when filled w/groceries, these have to be maneuvered into the cart. So now I don't find this type of shopping cart as practical to use. Moreover, it doesn't fold up & if it's overloaded weight-wise, a wheel will pop off (easy to put back on once the cart is empty). So although I have gotten a lot of use out of this cart, my next cart will be the standard, open metal shopping cart which of course, I hope to buy in black!
