Is there any reason I couldn't or shouldn't strap an ordinary plastic grocery basket like this one...
...to the rear rack of my bike? Seems like I could lash it down via bungee cord or Velcro for easy removal when I arrive at the grocery store; then simply reattach the grocery-filled basket when it's time to go home. It would be cheaper than some of the Wald and other wire-mesh options I've seen online, and it has a certain Fred appeal -- but would it work?
Here's an even cheaper one: http://www.storesupply.com/pc-12094-...azonProductAds
