Part 1 - SCAMPER
My sub-theme is holiday retail environment, so I narrow down my topic to a specific product: shopping bag.
Can I replace or change any parts?
The images/text on the bag
Can I use other ingredients or materials?
Liquid based materials
Can I change its shape?
What if I change its name?
What ideas or parts can be combined?

Combine the glove with the shopping bag handle, so you can carry it in winter if you forget your gloves as well.

What ideas outside my field can I incorporate?
What else is like it?
What other ideas does it suggest?
Hold a lot of stuff
Easy to move with
what can you add?
A water bottle
What can be extended?
The bag capacity
Put to other use
What else can it be used for?
Can it be used by people other than those it was originally intended for?
Plastic shopping bag - trash bag
Ball the plastic bags up they can be used as mattress and/or pillow stuffing
Cheap disposable gloves for handling unpleasant things.
How can I simplify it?
One-piece shopping bag
What if I made it smaller?
Compressed fabric - soaked in the water - the plastic bag gets bigger
Can I interchange components?
Shopping bag toys
A box with handles/ a bag without handles
What if I try doing the exact opposite of what I originally intended?

I chose to use Morphological Analysis Table
Idea 1:Cheap fabric bag inside a drup capsule, easy to carry everywhere!
Idea2:Duct tape plastic mug. (have a plastic base, and tape your mug as tall as you want)
Part 3: I reviewed all the good ideas from last week, and at the time when we selected the ideas, we focused on both "good ideas" and also "functional", so all my 10 best rated ideas: Hidden Secret Sensor, Customer ID, Micro-Fabric Sensor, Commercial Campaign, Name Tag Sensor, Floor Map, Map Shopping Bag, Shopping App, Shopping Schudulizer, Map Projection, can all be concepts for real products.
