The shopping bag tax, which has recently hit England, is something that people in Wales have been living with for several years now, as have those in Scotland and Northern Ireland.

This means either buying bags each time you shop or finding one of the many alternatives to the single use carrier bag that now carries a 5p surcharge – bags for life, boxes, canvas shoppers, trolley.

“TROLLEY?” I hear you cry.

The word trolley may conjure up images of elderly ladies hauling a tartan covered cage but this is no longer the case as this cute trolley from the House of Bath proves.

This convenient item (when folded up) measures just 51cm x 29cm x 18cm – so can be easily stored at home yet can carry up to 7kg of shopping when in use.

It is incredibly simple to erect; just unzip,

Rather than the traditional trolley design, this is more a bag on wheels – however it is made from durable rip resistant polyester and is very light. It has a hard base, which the wheels are attached to but the rest of the ‘trolley’ is without firm form. As you can see from the picture, it also has a zipped pocket on the front which is handy for coupons, receipts etc.

Apart from shopping, I have found plenty of other uses for mine; moving food for picnics, easily carrying camping equipment, toy box, storing crafting items… The list goes on.
