This is scary. And it happens every week.
Every Monday I zero in on one morning to do most of my grocery shopping - and my car ends up looking like a sea of grocery bags.
Upon arriving home, I hand my toddler a snack and then run in and out of the house until everything is inside. If only there was an easier way...
The Mighty Handle allows you to carry more bags in one trip with no spills. Shoppers can now carry their bags across a parking lot, walking in a neighborhood, up a flight of stairs or from your car into the house with more ease and convenience. The handle and anchor design distributes weight evenly allowing consumers to carry up to 50 lbs in one hand. The design also ensures that bags flow toward the center so contents don't slosh or get damaged. Mighty Handle is also great for carrying dry cleaning, housewares, even paint cans.
In these pictures I am carrying four grocery bags full of groceries.
But with the Mighty Handle it feels like only two bags full.
For the past three years I have lived in an apartment building where my car is parked a ways away from my front door. So I could have definitely used something like this on a regular basis when loaded and unloading my car with groceries or kid stuff.
When I took the Mighty Handle out of the package, I liked what I saw. The plastic felt very sturdy and the handle was really comfortable, even when I was holding heavy items. I loved how it kept my plastic grocery bags from cutting into my fingers or wrists. The colors looked attractive and I liked that it was blue and green versus white or black so that it would be easier to keep track of.
At first I wondered if this was something that was really necessary. I don't like to be sold products that I really don't need (uh-hem informercials). But when I realized that the Mighty Handle was more versatile than just carrying shopping bags to and from the car, I was intrigued.
From my experience in using the Mighty Handle, it would be great for:
-camping (carrying gear from the car to the site)
-sports events (carrying all the gear, chairs, snacks, bags, etc.)
-going to the beach (if you live near the beach you know this is cheaper than a wagon or push cart for all your beach gear!)
-parents of newborns (baby carrier in one hand and Mighty Handle in the other to carry diaper bags, groceries and the like)
-for those who travel for work or leisure (good for getting you belongings to your room without pushing an awkward cart around)
-moms of kids who participate in dance recitals, theater, pageants, etc. (carrying costumes or outfits)
The Mighty Handle is a great holiday gift idea for moms or for people with joint, shoulder or back pain. It can easily be stored in a purse, back pocket or glove box. It's also made of 100% recycled plastic and is made in the U.S.A.
Overall, I thought this was a great, versatile product and I'm sure there are many more uses for it than what I was able to come up with. Moms usually tend to say that they wish they had more hands, so I guess this is a way to head in that direction.
