2009 Ford Flex: Mucho Trips to Target

July 20, 2009


I think my husband hates me. All he wants to do on weekends is take a nap by the pool, and I prefer to use our time together to get things done. And bought.

This weekend, we purchased a 127-gallon outdoor storage bin to hold our rainbow crop of styrofoam pool noodles.


And then we went back the next day for a 36-inch-high eight-cube shelf and and eight fabric storage bins.

Unassembled, neither item was particularly unwieldy, but the Flex's low load-height and power rear hatch made it easy for my husband to move the boxes from the red shopping cart to the carpeted cargo-hold.

For me, the Ford Flex is the perfect shopping companion. Whether its our first trip to Target that weekend, or our fifth, the Flex and I never squabble about what I want to buy, or who's going to put it together when we get home.
