"Hook And Go" Because You Can't Get An Octopus To Carry Your Grocery Bags

An octopus could easily handle my grocery bags, but one would certainly cause concern in my local market. Octopuses are terrible kleptomaniacs. But thanks to the Hook and Go people in San Francisco, I'm going to can the octopus.

Hook and Go is your cephelopod on wheels, and it's much more streamlined. Much like a travel cart in concept, the Hook and Go is designed for convenience and ergonomics. It weighs only 7 pounds, but can hold up to 10 times its weight in groceries or other goodies which can be hung from one of eight spokes. (I told you it was related to an octopus!)


"The smart cart for the urban shopper," the Hook and Go may have been developed for city shopping and even for city living, as the wheels are designed to easily climb stairs! But the Hook and Go works just as well for suburbians, shopping in a supermarket or mall. Instead of wheeling your groceries to your car in a supermarket cart, you can save time by hanging the shopping bags on the Hook and Go and just think of how convenient the Hook and Go would be for mall shopping!

For ecology's sake, please bring re-usable shopping bags!

Plastic bags

Thanks for your comment.  Plastic bags work fine on the Hook and Go, but don't over pack them.  Or, better yet, skip the plastic bag and bring your own reusable bag!Wink
