  • When I remember, so no. I would like to use them most of the time but I usually forget them at home or in the car.

  • I do! I leave them in my trunk. I've found that I can fit more things in them than the plastic ones, which saves me trips to my truck! :)

  • All the time and meat and the like go in plastic and then in the cloth and they get washed once month to get rid of all the germies.

  • I do.  I also get 50 store points for every bag I use which are redeemed for free groceries when you get enough added up.  I have over $150 of free groceries so far which I usually redeem at Christmas time.

  • I use them probably 9 out of 10 times because once in a while I stop at the store after work and don't have them with me.

  • i use them when i go to the library, i have to. i've already killed thirteen backpacks, and seven duffle bags in five years. now i give one to each kid. they are alot stronger than plastic.

  • I use the insulated ones the most because they are stronger, and I have a few canvas bags of my own. They are easier to handle with the handles to carry and I feel like they aren't going to break with heavy bottles. Getting the hubby to use them is another story.

  • if I remember, once they are in the house they stay there. I have even tried to tell my kids that if they remind me tp use them i will give them a dollar. hasn't worked.
