This DIY shopping cart is great not just for shoppers like me who lack sufficient arm strength to carry groceries around, but also for eco-minded consumers looking to cut back on their carbon footprint.

This DIY project gets you biking instead of driving, while also handling the grocery transportation problem. Berto Aussems developed a collapsible shopping trolley that fits on the back of a bicycle. The box is unobtrusive, so it won't get in the way when driving. When you are at the correct location and ready to get your shop on, just hop off your two-wheeler and unfold the wheels. The DIY shopping cart becomes mobile. On the site, Aussems suggests a secondary function: "Besides a shopping cart, it can also be used as a child stroller with room to store things."
