In my house, I'm the grocery store guy. Always have been, always will be. I'm the only one in my family that really cares about the particular kinds of foods we buy and how much these things should cost. The grocery store in my game.

That's why I was so shocked on Saturday to actually learn something about a grocery store carriage that I've never learned before. The young lady that was bagging groceries at Market Basket blew my mind when she hung my bag full of chips on a built-in hook on the grocery store cart.

It's such a good idea because instead of making a second layer of grocery bags inside your carriage, running the risk of crushing chips or breaking eggs – I mean, who knows what could have happened under there – she gently hung the bag from the side.

Let me tell you, I kept my composure and acted like I've seen it a million times before, but inside I was dying.

How in the world have I been going to the grocery store my whole life and never seen anyone pull off this brilliant trick? It got me thinking: how many other simple things are out there that I have no idea exist? How many of them will I learn before I die?

I could barely wait to get out into the parking lot to take a picture of the situation and post it to my social media. I wasn't alone; some, who had learned about it within the past several years, also shared how they felt the first time they saw this in person.

I just hope there are people out there that can benefit from this knowledge that I feel a duty to share. The world may be burning to the ground in 2020, but at least we can hang our bags from the sides of our carriages.
