Ideas For Easy City Dwelling Life

When you live in the downtown portion of a city, some aspects of your life are easier and more convenient than they would be in the suburbs or in a rural setting. In most populous cities, it's never hard to find a good restaurant or bar where you can spend a pleasant evening, and the chances are good that you can walk to the theater, to plenty of shopping locations, and even to a park or a museum.

But urban living also makes some aspects of everyday life harder to complete. This is certainly true when you don't keep a car in the city yet you need to travel farther than a local transit system can carry you. It's also true when the city gets snarled by rush hour traffic, construction, or bad weather even when you do have a car but can hardly drive it on the busy streets.

And while it's usually easier to dine out (or order food in) when you live downtown, it can be much harder to complete those grocery shopping trips. The simple act of getting to the grocery store can be a frustration if your preferred market isn't near your home, and while suburban or rural dwellers with cars can load up on groceries and other goods and simply load them into a vehicle, the urban resident often needs to consider what he or she can carry in one trip as opposed to what they actually want to buy.

The time-tested solution for all your urban grocery, hardware, and general shopping needs is to get yourself a good shopping cart. A vertically oriented shopping cart doesn't take up much room on the sidewalk, the subway, or the bus, but it offers you plenty of room for several bags of goods.

Choosing The Best Shopping Cart


Go to top.

If you live quite close to your preferred grocery store and simply need a bit of extra help toting your foods back from the market to your downtown apartment, then almost any standard wire-frame shopping cart with wheels will serve you just fine. Go with an inexpensive model and don't worry about the bells and whistles offered by other units; so long as the sidewalks near your home are in relatively good shape and the weather where you live tends to stay decent for most of the year.

If, on the other hand, you live far from your chosen supermarket, retail spots, or any other store you frequent, or if the streets and sidewalks near your home are less than smooth and well-maintained, and/or if you live in an area prone to bad weather, you might want to consider a heavier duty shopping cart, and perhaps one ready for rain and snow.

There are many shopping carts available that are designed with thick, robust rubber wheels ready for the cracks, cobblestones, roots, and ruts that are so common in many cities. Many of these carts have a larger weight carrying capacity than their slimmed down counterparts but remember too that many rugged carts weigh more, so know your own strength and endurance limits.

Many shopping carts can be sealed using either a zippered cover or even a solid plastic lid. These are great options for dealing with inclement weather, but keep in mind that such carts can usually tote less volume of goods. There is often some small sacrifice to be made when choosing a shopping cart, but if you opt for smaller storage capacity and don't end up with soggy, potentially ruined goods, then you made the right choice.

Also consider any special uses for which you might employ your shopping carts, such as carrying documents or sensitive gear like a camera or lenses. Carts with wireframes aren't ideal for carrying papers or for anything that could be damaged by even a small splash of water or dust.

Clever Ideas For Shopping Cart Use


Go to top.

In smaller homes, storage space can come at a real premium. Even a collapsible shopping cart still takes up some space, and it can be hard to decide on the best place for its storage. One idea is to mount hooks on the door of your home or the wall behind the door and store the cart right there by the entrance. That way it's always ready when it's time to go shopping, and it also doesn't take up any space in a closet or under the bed.

If you live in a building without a garbage chute, then you know how annoying it can be to carry bags of heavy (and pungent) garbage down to the street or trash room. It's enough work already if you have to use an elevator, but if you live in a walk-up apartment, carrying your garbage downstairs is beyond an annoyance.

Fortunately, most wire frame style shopping carts can easily accommodate even a full garbage bag. Put those wheels to work carrying unwanted goods out of your home just the same as you use them to carry the good stuff inside. Lining a shopping cart with a heavy duty plastic garbage bag can also make it a waterproof vehicle for transporting goods when it's raining or snowing.

A shopping cart with thicker wheels is a great choice for bringing food, beverages, toys, towels, and more for those trips to the beach or the park. Just don't overload your cart, as even a cart with larger wheels will bog down in soft sand if it's too heavy.

#1.Easy Wheels Super Shopping Cart, Black


This is the Lexus of shopping carts. The wheels are solid rubber, the metal is coated with white to prevent rust and there is a metal plate on the bottom to keep things from falling out the bottom. The plate also saves you're having to purchase a lining for your cart. I can't imagine buying so many groceries that you couldn't get them all in. I love mine and I have seen a lot of flimsy ones to compare it to. I can't suggest another that would be better.
