    It seems straight forward and y'all probably do it. But I keep seeing other people just tossing bags in their bed just to have em fly around while they drive or drive super gingerly to keep from spilling.


    The bed cleats can hold your grocery bags, so as they aren't rolling around your bed or sitting in your passenger seat. I just keep 2 cleats on the driver side front. one on the side, one against the cab. Walk up, sling the bag handles over the cleat and go. Can toss several on one cleat.

    Never had a bag break, never have em fall off. Good times, like the hooks they have in some SUVs behind the seats.
    Works great on "to go" meals like mandoo kook soo and other soupy things you don't want spilling in your car.

    Another reason to have windoors on your cap as well reach in, reach out.

    Anyway.. Don't mean to be insulting with its simplicity. But it really makes living with a pickup truck easier.

    Never thought of it, but great idea. I have a tonneau cover though, so it may not work all the time

    Sounds liek a good idea. I am not sure if this will work on the reusable bags they have now, which my wife loves b/c they hold more. Good tip though! JOE>

    My '11 Double Cab has hooks designed to hold grocery bags in behind the rear seats. Might be a problem if you have stuff on the seat, but if there's nothing, fold the seat down, and it's already there. Besides, I've always put my bags inside the cab with me, whether on the hooks or just on the floor.

    Fox news just reported that enough lead was found in reuseable grocery bags to require hazard waste disposal.:D This was in FL IIRC

    To the OP, sounds like a clever idea. I may try it.

    This post caught me off guard and made me laugh. "Throw" them in! :laugh:

    Great idea. In my '99 I used to just toss them in the bed and when I got home everything was rolling around in the bed. Haven't bought groceries with my '10 yet but will definitely give it a shot.
