Of all the bothersome chores we’re tasked with each week, there’s one that stands out as being particularly loathsome: grocery shopping. While the act of grocery shopping itself isn’t so bad (after all, who doesn’t love checking delicious food off their shopping lists?), the annoyance usually kicks in once you pull into your driveway and are reminded of the fact that you now have to unpack your overflowing trunk. If only there was a grocery-carrying tool to help the job along! 

The Mighty Handle ($9.99 for 2, Amazon) is just that. A clever solution for a perennial problem, this handy little device allows you to double up your load on those particularly frustrating days when you have a lot of bags and aren’t in the mood to make multiple trips,

Coming in a set of two, The Mighty Handle, which is equipped with a padded comfort grip, is designed to evenly distribute the weight of your groceries, allowing you to carry multiple bags comfortably and cutting down on your treks back to the car. And, if you’re worried the integrity of the Mighty Handle, you needn’t be — these durable plastic handles are also designed to carry up to 50 pounds of weight per handle. 

“If you carry in your groceries alone or have to go up stairs, these are an ESSENTIAL,” one of many Amazon fans of this top-rated product raved. “Now that I’ve used them, I don’t think I could ever go back. They’re small and lightweight, fit easily in my glovebox or purse, and enable me to carry my entire grocery run up 30+ stairs without losing circulation in my hands. I’d recommend them to anyone and have started giving them as gifts.”

Another customer had praise for the invention for a completely different reason. “More than once, I have been driving home from the grocery store and after a sharp turn on a quick stop I hear the dreaded noise of all my grocery bags rolling and crashing into one another!” she wrote. “I like to take the handle out when I bring my grocery cart to the car, wrap my bags around it, [and] place all my bags in the car at once. I twist it so the bags stay in place while I drive.” Talk about a life hack!

With mightly the Mighty Handle in tow, you’ll be feeling  mighty happy on your next shopping trip, even while doing your most hefty lifting, and that, friends, is priceless.
