I added this goal in August 2011…WOW!
Again, this is the year to get it done!
First, I need to build up my supply a little bit. I have a few bags, but I think a couple more would be good. I am going to take the ones I currently have and put them in my car so I remember to use them. When I make huge shopping trips, one that I just don’t have enough bags for, I’ll just have to recycle. 2 months ago


verbafelixI put one in my car!

... so that’s a start. 3 months ago


verbafelixRealization

Today I organized under my kitchen sink, where the plastic bags go, and I was shocked. At first, I thought maybe they looked like a lot because they were just thrown in there. Nope, there’s a ton. I do use them for the bathroom trash and the occasional dog bag, but this is ridiculous. I know I have some reusable bags somewhere. Finding them will be one thing, putting them somewhere useful will be quite another… 3 months ago

fudepenwell on my way

I keep 3 fabric bags hanging on the door knob to the garage, so I never forget them when leaving to go to the grocery store. I should buy a few more bags, and remember to use them at other stores as well. 17 months ago

Richelle Mae RuizSecret: Bring the pretty and the foldable ones

I have purchased them for $1.50 from Daiso, a little more expensive, and a bit smaller than your average shopping bag but because they’re so pretty and more compact, it gives me a reason to actually carry them in my purse and find opportunities to show ‘em off and use them.

One thing that shoppers must know is that some stores actually deduct about $0.05 (I don’t know if this is per bag or per transaction) from your bill if you use reusable bags. Trader Joe’s give you a raffle ticket for every reusable bag that you use for your purchases.

Some people raised concerns about the tedious task of having to wash them all the time since some food might be wet or too moist. Solution: provide separate bags for dry and wet goods. There are bags that are lined with plastic that will easy to wipe in case anything spills.

So far I have 4 reusable bags, 3 foldable bags, and one sturdy bag (black with white polka dots) that can handle heavier (and wet) groceries. 2 years ago
