A2: Car Free

A post on the Car Free in Ann Arbor blog describes a shopping trip to Sam’s Club using a bike trailer with a cooler: “We had to breakdown the toilet paper bundle and strap them separately on top of the cooler. Taking a bike and trailer for groceries makes you think twice about what is really important. I found myself putting stuff back and giving items a second thought – do I really need this really pretty ceramic mixing bowl set. When I had the car, I would have paid $20 for a set of 5 pretty bowls. Today, I put the box back. How would I get it home, why do I need more bowls, what am I willing to give up to have this box fit in the trailer (not TP!).” [Source]
