How best can one make the Sling Bag title and its details, wrap below the image of the handbag, while on a small screen?

            </div>
        </div>

I created a div tag with class name customer-details. Inside customer-details, I have .customer-information set to col-lg-7 and .items-selected set to col-lg-5. Added class row to class media, in the .items-selected. Inside class media, I set the .media-left to col-lg-7 and media-body to .col-lg-5. As a result, the contents of the .media-body wrapped below the image in the .media-left. This saved me a lot of time and energy.

How could I have achieved this using the CSS grid?

I would have to write another code and wrap my code in class customer-details-new. The .customer-details-new has customer-details-new and items-selected-new. Use Bootstrap cards in the .items-selected-new. Then, give the images a class of card-img-top, so that the image appears on the top and the text wraps below the image. Then, in the media query of the desired screen size, I set .customer-details to display none as shown below:

<div class="customer-details-new">
            <div class="contact-information-new">
                <h3> Contact Information </h3>
                <form action="#">
                    <label for="fname" class="pt-4 pr-4"> First Name: </label>
                    <input type="text" placeholder="First Name" class="w-50" id="fname" name="fname"> <br> <br>
                    <label for="lname" class="pr-4"> Last Name: </label>
                    <input type="text" placeholder="Last Name" class="w-50" id="lname" name="lname"> <br> <br>
                    <label for="telno" class="pr-4"> Phone No: </label>
                    <input type="number" placeholder="+254 722554294" class="w-50" id="telno" name="telno"> <br> <br>
                </form>
                <h4 class="pt-4"> Recipient's Delivery Address </h4>
                <form action="#">
                    <label for="idnumber" class="pt-4 pr-4"> ID Number: </label>
                    <input type="number" placeholder="Id Number" class="w-50" id="idnumber" name="idnumber"> <br> <br>

.items-selected {

  grid-column: 2;

.customer-details-new {

@media only screen and (max-width: 767px) {
  .customer-details {
    display: none;
  }

  .customer-details-new {
    display: grid;
    grid-template-columns: 100%;
    grid-template-rows: 500px 750px;
  }
  
  .contact-information-new {
    grid-row: 1;
    grid-column: 1;
  }
  
  .items-selected-new {
    grid-row: 2;
    grid-column: 1;
  }
}

This is how it will look:

As you can see, with the CSS grid, my code is longer with a media query. With Bootstrap grid classes, my code is less, neat with no media query.

For this reason and many more, which we can discuss later, I prefer using Bootstrap grids compared to using CSS grids.
