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. 6 months ago

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. 19 months ago
How I did it: I found it hard to remember the large stiff grocery bags and I also would shop spontaneously, so after I made some t -shirt bags I always had them with me. I also got these great reusable grain bags with velcro tops, way easier than a drawstring for bulk items. Read how I did it… 22 months ago
How I did it: I bought a half-dozen reusable grocery bags a while ago, and for a time I did well with remembering to bring them to the market with me. Then I moved to an area where I can't walk to the grocery store, and I kept forgetting my bags when I did a grocery run. I finally put a crate in the trunk of my car where the reusable bags go, and now I just have to remember to put them BACK when I'm done unloading groceries in the kitchen. Hooray for consuming less!
