Whenever you go grocery shopping no matter how carefully you try and follow the list brought with you it seems that it is inevitable that you come home with more bags then originally intended.
Many times it occurs because when the list is written there are a few items left off that you didn’t notice were omitted. Other times you see something that would make a great addition to a meal for another day that wasn’t included on the list.
No matter what the reason is by the time you get home you are tired and still have to trudge back and forth from the car or truck to the house. That means grabbing all that you can carry and still be able to open and close the front or side door and place them on the kitchen table, counter or island. Then repeat the process again.
We have all done this time and time again but managing the door knob can be difficult especially when carrying a very heavy or large and awkward package into the house.
Now there is a simple little trick that you can do after making it into the house with the first set of bags. All you do is twist a thick rubber band over the door knob inside and place the crossed part of the rubber band over the locking mechanism before attaching it to the outer door knob.
Every time you go outside to grab more grocery bags the door will be a breeze to get in and out of. Since the locking mechanism is blocked by the rubber band the door can be pushed easily every time you need to enter the house. Then you can push the door closed again once you are inside with your hip, elbow or foot across the foot plate until you unload them onto the counter in the kitchen.
Once you have all the bags inside, the car door locked remove the rubber band and keep it hanging over the inside door knob to be readily available to use on the next shopping trip.
Bringing grocery bags in just got easier and takes less time now!
