Striped Shopping Cart
Great laundry cart
Not only great for laundry. I am using this cart for work. I travel between 3 schools. It's waterproof and it has a section that's insulated for my lunch!

Useful and Stylish at the same time!
This shopping trolly has saved me from remembering all my bags to take into the grocery store - just one wonderful striped cart. The insulated bag is useful and divides the space in two (still learning how to pack everything properly). Side pockets can hold a bottle in each, rear pockets hold umbrella and 'other' (I'd suggest a spare bag for eggs or the like). The only addition I'd love to see (and am working out how to make it myself), is a backpack attachment, so I can hike to the store and roll back. If you're interested in getting compliments regularly, this is the bag to have. I can't leave the supermarket without at least one person commenting on how they like this cart!

Great shopping cart!
I have bought this shopping cart about a year ago and have used it in many situations. It is very light weight and can carry a lot of stuff. It is really useful for a trip to the farmers market or any place you want to easily carry items around. It also looks great so you can go around in style. :)

Rolling Cart/Trolley--Whimsical and Practical Too
I judge myself to be quite the expert on rolling carts since medical limitations prevent me from carrying bags while puling a trolley is not such a problem. Thus, I currently have two and never leave home without one. This Container Store cart has some features that are unique: 1. there are long open pockets on each side of the bag that are about 3/4 as high as the bag itself; 2. there is a much smaller pocket in the back (perfect for keys) and what the store refers to as an umbrella pocket (more on this later); 3. the lining is water-resistant; and 4. inside the bag there is a roomy insulated pouch to keep items hot or cold. Wow what a great design. I have never seen a cart with an insulated pouch or an umbrella pocket but since I wear a waterproof pancho in the rain, this pocket is perfect for my tall water thermos. I have had carts with one or two small pockets but never with all these pockets. This is the cart that allows you to really organize your groceries or whatever else you might be carrying. The pockets on the sides are plenty large enough for magazines, books or the latest copy of The Onion. I am 5'7" with long legs and this cart is actually tall enough. Now the bag itself--this is the whimsical part. They had me at stripes...but the vivid colors make this a stylish pleasure to use. Since I need to use a cart, it might as well be great looking. The wheels are large and overall from the frame to the bag this trolley is very well made. Regarding the size, the store's description has the measurements but based on the carts I've owned, I consider this a Med/Large; the opening is very wide making it easier to fill and empty. I also own a taller one but I wouldn't trade this one for anything--not with all these features. If you're shopping for a family of four, you might need the largest you can find but with its insulated pouch, this cart has many uses including beach or park outings. I expect to have it for a long time. If my husband wouldn't freak out, I would buy another one to have when this cart eventually wears out...I know I'll regret it if I don't. I had to wait weeks for them to become available for purchase. One final word, I have bought cheaper carts but the wheels fell off very quickly. Like that special handbag you just gotta have, this is the cart equivalent. If you need it, go for it.
