Last week for #TransitThursday @gotriangle posted some great gift ideas for the fav commuter in your life. They even suggested that maybe if you are that commuter, you TREAT. YO. SELF.
So, did you receive the commuter gift that was on your wish list?
I’ve got to say, I was a very lucky gal this year; I must have been good! I received two new transit map shower curtains for my new digs (MBTA and WMTA), an awesome I <3 Public Transit mug made from corn (sustainable, practical and awesome), a new travel mug for my morning coffee, and I found an awesome transit accessible apartment!
And not to sound ungrateful or unappreciative, quite the contrary – but the one thing I really, really, really wanted for Christmas was an old lady shopping cart.
My hubby searched high and low in Charlotte and could not find one in a store. I’m still convinced it’s because they are clearly all the rave and flew right off the shelves before he was able to find one. ((CLEARLY.))
Laugh if you must, but I think the old lady shopping cart is an essential for the transit commuter. You can carry anything from your laundry to your groceries! I mean, come on – 10,000 old ladies can’t be wrong!!
Still not convinced it’s the coolest thing ever, check out these blogs about the resurgence of the old lady cart:
I’ve decided to take @gotriangle’s advice and TREAT. YO. SELF. I am now on the hunt for the perfect old lady cart. Right now I’m leaning toward the:
Narita™ Super Swiveling Shopping Cart (in black)
Deluxe Hooded Liner (in green)
It has swiveling front wheels and can carry up to 250 pounds of stuff! How awesome is that?
Sure, there are prettier and more stylish carts out there, but what can beat 250 pounds of stuff?! I can walk, board the bus, complete all of my errands and get it all back on the bus with ease!
Ok, I know… I’m a little too excited about the idea of this old lady cart.
So why don’t you share with us what you received for the holidays?
