I thought it would take me a lot longer to remember my reusable bags, but I have gotten into the habit of using them much quicker than I had originally thought. I don’t like the plastic grocery bags; so I think that helped me remember to use the reusables.

I am pretty pleased that I am remembering my bags. I had to go back out to the car when I got to Woodmans. That was the first stop on the grocery shopping tour. I remembered them right away at the other two stops. I need to get a couple more as I don’t know if it is proper to use another stores pre-printed bags at a different store. I still am looking for a large canvas bag I had somewhere around here. I think I got that at IKEA. I liked that bag because it was so big and sturdy. I am having fun challenging myself to remember to use the reusable bags.
I primarily shop at Wal Mart or Woodmans for my groceries. I have bags at both stores and have them in the back of the van. I will try and put them right back in the van after we come home from the grocery store or after they are washed if need be. I think they are a lot easier to carry in than the conventional plastic bags.
the 1st time we went grocery shopping to use my bags at Wal Mart. I think it is a little extra work for the checker, but she did not seem to mind. I have to look around for my big cloth bag. I like to take the single big bag when I am not getting to much. I liked not having a lot of plastic sacks around after putting up the grocery purchases.
I have washed all of my reusable bags and put them in the van. I told Brooklynn, my granddaughter, that is was her job to help grandma remember her reusable bags when we go to the store. I hate those plastic bags. Everywhere I go, I see plastic bags hanging in the trees, blowing across the roads, or stuck in bushes. They never really hold any boxed ingredients well. I find the plastic bags splitting open before I even get them loaded into the van. I am determined to learn to use the reusable bags all of the time.
