Reusable Shopping Bags

Be honest! How many of you have the reusable shopping bags...and actually use them?

I have about 10 of them around the house, but I usually forget to take them with me when I go to the store.

Do you have any tips or tricks to remembering to take and use them when you go to the store?

  • Maybe try keeping them in the same place as the shopping list, or putting a bold note on the shopping list. I don't know. I'd forget my head if it weren't attached. :)

  • I keep mine in the truck, I still forget them sometimes. I've started keeping a couple in the front seat for quick purchases, and since they are in sight I remember to get more out of the back if I need to.

  • I use them occasionally when I remember. I try to leave them in my car but even then I still forget!

  • I have a few, but I forget them too. What makes me remember them is when the store will discount 5 cents for every bag of your own you use.
    It makes me mad thought when they need to be reminded to do this and also some stores say the bag you bring has to be the ones they sell in their store with their names on them. NOT FAIR.

    I must say though, I am amazed at the number of people that take there own bags to our local grocery and also to Trader Joes. I would say it is over 50 per cent.

  • I usually forget as well. I also have about 10 of them. I do always use them when I go to the library though, and at other times.

  • I ALWAYS forget them. Someone told me to keep them in the car. It's a good idea, but I always forget that too.
