simplehuman Grocery Bag Holder – Gets the job done

For many years I have been collecting those pesky plastic grocery bags in a junk drawer in my kitchen. I am certain I am not the only person who does this, the bags are convenient for small trash bins, wrapping up something smelly, carrying a lunch to work and many other uses.

I live in New England and we get a lot of heavy wet snow and a lot of storms that will dump 12-18" overnight. I did not like the power shovel at all and found it too heavy and unwieldy. It is worth noting that I am a petite woman and not the [...]
