This Sparked Me!

It really is the little changes in our lives...I now make it a policy to walk my cart back to the grocery store. It keeps people from crashing into them in parking places and adds a few steps to my day.

    That is a very good idea instead of put the cart in the parking booth it is better to take it back to the store and grab those extra steps. Thanks for sharing.

    Great idea! I usually park them in those little kiosks just for the carts, but walking it back is a better idea and gets in more steps. Super! emoticon

    It's a great "extra" to add to my parking at the end of the parking lot instead of close to the building...taking the longer way to my office (around the building instead of through it)...moving the alarm clock across the room so I HAVE to get up to turn it off!

    It is irritating to not be able to park in a spot, because someone has left a cart. It is like when you are searching for a place to park in a crowded parking lot and some one has taken up 2 spots to protect his/her car. So my encouraging comment is that I try to move it for the next guy. Makes for a happier world.

    I do this too ever since I heard Joyce Meyer talk about doing this as a courtesy and because it is a right thing to do.
PATRICIA-CR 6/11/2014 10:23:00 AM

    Every little move counts emoticon
TRANSFORM-ABBY 6/11/2014 10:08:00 AM

    Add a few more steps by grabbing other carts left out along the way.
LOVINGKATE 6/11/2014 9:02:00 AM

    That is the respectable thing to do. Plus the car won't get hit by one of the carts.
DELLMEL 6/11/2014 8:41:00 AM

    I take mine back to the cart booth in the parking lot.
HAPPYMOM8 6/11/2014 8:17:00 AM

HAPPYMOM8 6/11/2014 8:15:00 AM

    Yes! Shows respect!!
VAINVT 6/11/2014 8:11:00 AM

    And, it is the polite thing to do. Three wins.
BAPSANN 6/11/2014 8:05:00 AM

MMINITEACH 7/19/2011 11:08:00 PM

    So simple, yet so useful!
IMAPEPPER55 7/19/2011 7:24:00 PM

    I DO THAT TOO! Sometimes I park far away so I can get some extra exercise...Go Girl... emoticon emoticon
