Deciding where to place your bags of food shopping in a supermarket trolley is like playing a real life game of tetris.
The aim is to position your ‘cold’ ingredients on one side, heavier items on the other and delicately place bread, chips and fruit on the top so they won’t be crushed.
But one very clever mother has cheated the system and created an ingenious hack to prevent those lighter items from being flattened.

A photo of the trick was uploaded to Facebook and shared in an organisational group by Katherine Bhatti.
‘How old where you when you found out this is where you store the bread and chips?’ A caption on the photo stated.
She had hung bags of food-related products on the metal ‘clips’ below the child’s seat, so that they dangled away from other items.
The post, which went viral, garnered a mixed reaction.
‘I was today years old,’ one person commented underneath the photo.
‘I never even knew Australian trolleys had those,’ another added.
But some suggested this wasn’t the best place for them to be placed, particularly if you have a child with you on the food shopping run.

‘My husband has requested that our family follow two very important rules… 1. Don’t squash the bread 2. Don’t shake the beer. This would clearly break one of those rules,’ one person joked.
‘Nope! If you hang bread and chips there your legs will smash into them with every step. That’s a bunch of bull!’ Said another.
A third claimed to know exactly what those metal clips are for.
‘It’s engineered that way to keep the kids seat open when building the ‘cage’. The tips are rounded so no skirt or dress gets caught on open ends of the metal bars. Any long legged person would know, this is NOT a safe place for chips, eggs or bread.’
