One Trip Grip – Carry More Plastic Groceries Bags (If You Don’t Already Use Cloth)

One Trip Grip - Carry More Plastic Groceries Bags (If You Don't Already Use Cloth)

I don’t know about you but I’m generally wont to make only one trip from the car after a supermarket run.  Now that I live across the street from the market itself, not such a big deal.  In suburbia I used to go once a week or even week and a half.  My fingers and hands would take an hour to recover after grabbing every single bag and struggling inside.  I’m not sure what it is about making two trips.  I’m not into it.  I also have to admit this whole problem went away after I started using cloth bags.  They carry more and you can hang them off yourself in 20 different directions.  So I’d head this under great idea, 15 years too late.  But if you’re still rocking plastic bags (dog walker’s unite) here’s something cheap that can save your hands from blood starvation.

The Fold Flat Grill

Often objects that are incredibly useful or intelligently engineered are often beautiful because of they are so well engineered.  It’s just a by-product.  Think Egmont Arens and the KitchenAid mixer he designed, or an Eames chair, or the lowly Sweepmaster Bissel.  This thing heads in the same direction.  Smart – like “why didn’t I think of that” – smart.

For $80 at the The Awesomer, check out the ultimate portability and form meets function with The Fold Flat Grill.  Made from durable 304 stainless steel, the grill provides a 17 1/2″ x 13″ cooking area for those appreciating al fresco grilling.  And at less than 1″ thick when folded, you can stack it up with the folding chairs and carry this around for maximum portability.  This thing could open up a lot of options at the beach, out on the trail, or in the parking lot outside the next game.
