Trolley bags – Reusable shopping bags – Review

With us all trying to have a greener outlook to reusing shopping bags, Trolley Bags are are a great invention made specifically for use in a large supermarket shopping trolley.  I was sent a set to try out and couldn’t wait to give them a go.  As I tend to use shop & scan when I do my larger shop, I thought these would be ideal to for packing the shopping as I go around the store.

trolley 1The set of Trolley Bags consists of four differently coloured bags that are velcroed together and can be rolled up for storage in the car boot.  The bags range in size to fit with the slope of the trolley.  The smallest bag fits either just before the separate section at the end of the trolley or if you prefer to have the seat down as I do, it will sit in the end section allowing you to use the seat area for your handbag and other items or a small child.

trolley 2It is best to put bulkier, larger items such as cereal boxes, crisps etc in the larger bags otherwise they will be quite heavy to lift, and keep the smaller two bags for heavier items such as tins, jars and heavier vegetables.  I have found these really good for packing my trolley as I go around the shop using self scan leaving me with just four bags to put into the car.  The bags hang open making packing simple, it really does result in no hassle shopping.

trolley 3I do have one concern though, the bars that hang off the sides of the trolley are at a similar height to my four year old’s head.  I found when shopping with him in tow, he hovered all around the sides of the trolley eager to help and I found I had to be a little cautious to ensure I didn’t poke him in the face.  I therefore now save these trolley bags for when I do child free shopping, or they’d also be ideal if you have a little one that still sits in the trolley seat.

Overall, I think they are a great concept and definitely the way forward in shopping bags. I also like the way they velcro together making carrying them easier rather than a stash of smaller carrier bags.  I’d keep your eye out for these, especially with the carrier bag charges due in England later this year!

All reviews are my own and my family’s opinions and we received the shopping bags in order to write the review.
