Trolley Bags – Review and giveaway

This week it’s just about back to normal in the Dragon house (well as normal as its ever going to be!) This means back to the weekly shop, as I decided we couldn’t live on biscuits and chocolate any more!

Trolley Bags were there to help me out, and I have to say it’s not often that you see something that you think “Why didn’t someone think of that before?” Trolley Bags are a set of four coloured bags designed to fit perfectly in the trolley. Graded in size and shape to fit, and the perfect way to pack your shopping. If you use the supermarket self scan, then even better as you can pack as you shop. Trolley Bags are available from the Packing Sorted website at £16.99, which at first may seem pricey but I think great value for money if you work out the time they can save while shopping and the environmental impact plastic bags have on the planet.

I set of for my local supermarket, list in hand to see exactly how these bags could work for me. The four bags use a system of Velcro to keep them together and one problem I had was keeping them rolled up. They seemed bulky, but fitted on the back of the trolley while I shopped. At the checkout I simply unrolled the bags and slid them onto the trolley. The bars running through the bags support them on the sides of the trolley allowing a good size opening for each bag to be filled. At this point it is worth noting that you need to have the bags graded from orange at the back (bag 4) to blue at the front (bag 1). Because each bag is graded in height and size if you don’t you will have all sorts of problems!

I found the bags easy to pack, and they hold a large amount of shopping so you might find it best to put heavy items in the smaller bags (bag 1 and 2) otherwise the bags will be too heavy to lift. I whizzed through the checkout and out to my car. This was the only real problem I had with the bags having a very small car the bags wont fit in my boot. They were simple to lift in by un-fastening the Velcro and lifting into my floor well. If you have a big family car Trolley bags will be easy to lift and as they all connect I can imagine would stand easily and upright in your boot.

Overall I have been impressed with the quality and usability of the Trolley Bags. They were perfect for taking away the packing stress, when the shop checkout fills up as you load. They hold a good amount of shopping and are available to buy now from the website, if you would like the chance to win a set to try for yourself then why not enter my gleam app giveaway below.
