  • at first I was a bit skeptical about the cloth ones but now I LOVE them! you can fit more in them & they are easier to carry in the house!

  • I try to bring the re-usables. But I usually forget them and go with plastic.

  • I sometimes get plastic bags, so I have them for dirty clothes, diapers, etc. for in the diaper bag. Those are must haves when out adn about. Otherwise I have my cloth bags....I sometimes get the impression they are an annoyance to some people. But oh well. That is less waste to me!!

  • Cloth for sure, they fit more, are sturdier and not wasteful.

  • I like using my cloth ones, but they kind of get messed up when you wash them (of course Im sure Im not supposed to throw them in the dryer, lol)... but with meats I prefer to at least throw a plastic bag around it

  • I agree with bumblebeestingu
    I always forget mine but I talked to a cashier at wal mart that said she hates them because they get paid by how many scanned items and they really slow down her productivity and they are disgusting to handle!
