Do You Carry...

Reusable Grocery Bags?

Why or why not?  Would you carry them if they were cheaper?  If they didn't scream one store's logo all over the place?  If they were more your style?  Is it hard to remember?  

What if a store offered incentives to customers who brought their own bags?  I always remember to carry mine at Smith's (Kroger) because I get extra reward points.  Now they're going one farther and sending you a free bag for entering their design contest.  

Here's my favorite grocery bag! 

And here's a chance to design your own!

Here are some more that can be personalized.  Some of them are thermal totes too.

I do. I carry them because they hold more and its less for me to carry up the stairs. I have plain I have Walmart, target, I have pattern. I don't care as long as its cloth and holds alot. :) we keep them in our trunk.

For me, its remembering.  I'm leavning the house with 2 kids (one in a carrier) and a diaper bag....I don't have the hands to bring out the other ones too LOL.  

Whole Foods is awesome as they do give you 5 cents for each brought in bag you use.

I actually sometimes prefer to not use them though.  I recylce and those paper bags you get at the store are perfect to store my recyclables in :)
