The Rolling Case

Freight is freight, no matter what source of energy moves the goods. For the last twenty years, nearly everything in the house has come in on foot. I have a collection of specialized totes that I use as the shopping list suggests. A rolling briefcase with four spinner wheels is my current choice for a grocery list that includes liquids. The case is small enough that I can't hurt myself towing too much weight. It's also ideal for cruising narrow aisles, because I can roll it vertically so other shoppers don't trip over it. 

The case is good for its stated function as well, fits under an airline seat, and holds enough clothing for a few days on the road. Winter days in Seattle are so dark that I fit it with a red flashing running light from the bicycle section of the Great Big Hiking Co-op -30-
