Shopping Carts!

This Sparked Me!

When you go to a Grocery Store and get a shopping cart, at the end of the Trip you are going to have to put the cart somewhere. Purposely take it all the way back into the store area, OR put it in the furthest cart vestibule you can find. Adds a few extra steps to your overall day! emoticon

    In addition -- if you feel like getting an arm workout while you grocery shop, instead of using a cart, use one or two carry baskets, and as you walk around the store filling them, lift them up and down like weights! This probably won't work if you're buying an enormous amount of food, but two baskets containing a couple pounds each? Good weight lifting! :)

    I'd like to thank all of you that put your carts away, as someone who used to have to go fetch them.

    Do this myself. It goes along with parking your car a distance from the store.
