I go shopping on a regular basis. Generally, this takes me about four hours for about four days' worth of stuff. I plan my trip so that my last stop closest to home is for cold stuff. I always pay attention to where I park my cart, and have things bungy-corded on (as Keli says to avoid them bouncing off). I have NEVER had anything stolen off my cart (knock wood). However, I did have my take away chicken quesadillas taken off my cart behind BC's once.....could have been by a four legged tief......and maybe I spent too much time on margaritas that night!
