This Genius Shopping Cart Hack Will Change the Way You Grocery Shop—for Good

Tackle your next grocery trip with these clever TikTok grocery shopping hacks.

Grocery shopping is what you make of it—it can be a chore or it can be a weekly adventure. It’s time to put on your comfy shoes, start your shopping playlist and follow these helpful hacks to save time during your next grocery trip.

Need to Use Two Carts? No Problem!

There are plenty of reasons you might need two carts when you’re at the grocery store: bulk shopping, big family, buying for a friend that can’t leave the house and more. Typically, two carts mean you need two people to push them or you’re doing the super awkward push/pull method. Not anymore!

Thanks to this smart hack from TikTok user @HowDoesShe, we have a new way to manage two carts at once. It’s simple—use the child straps and create a train of carts.

@howdoessheBet you never knew this about grocery carts! If you have a big family you probably did! #monhack #grocerycart #fyp #lifehack #groceryshoppingtips♬ Banana (feat. Shaggy) [DJ FLe – Minisiren Remix] – Conkarah

FYI: It’ll be a lot easier to pull the carts than to push them!

How to Hack Your Weekly Shopping

This isn’t the only grocery shopping hack we’ve picked up from TikTok. If you’re anything like we are and struggle to remember to bring your own bags into the store, @1980sgamer shared a hack that will save you from frustration.

Rather than bagging everything you buy, just place it all right back into your shopping cart as you check out—without using any bags. When you get to your car, load up empty laundry baskets waiting in the trunk. Then, when you’re home, all you have to do is carry the baskets in. Genius!
