13. These Sanitary Shopping Cart Handles


I gotta admit, going grocery shopping is another ball game these days. Am I right or what? From wearing masks to gloves it's become so weird. At least these will help you minimize contact with your grocery bags and any potential germs.

I just love the idea of supporting small businesses while getting things that are unique and out of the ordinary. There are so many practical things there, too.
