i like them...
i use mine when i shop at aldi's...
I love them. I get $0.05 a bag off my Target purchases and it takes fewer trips to bring everything in after shopping trips since they fit a lot more stuff. Lot smaller risk of them breaking at bad time too.
My trunk if full of bags! I actual think I have a bit of an obsession. I love to buy cute bags when I see them. I probably have at least 30 bags in my car! I have 5 insulated bags too. Perfect for the hot summers here in the south. I use them on a regular basis. I do still get plastic bags on occasion just so I have a small stock of them around the house. I like to use them for the bathroom garbage.
Yes, I use reuseable bags. I have the same set of canvas bags I bought 20 years ago, plus a whole bunch of the newer style bags that I got for free from various places & promotions (the free bags don't hold up as well as my canvas bags have). I also have a few insulated bags that I did pay for, but only .99 cents each, that I can use for things that need to be kept cold or frozen.
In addition to the grocery bags, I have 3 bags that scrunch up into themselves that fit nicely in the bottom of my purse or that I can keep in the car. I use these bags for shopping at other stores than grocery stores & they're great for taking to flea markets & garage sales, too, because they are small & lightweight & I'm never caught w/o a bag.
Am I the only one that hates them? They are made in China and have toxins in them. YUCK! I make my own from recycled t-shirts and use them for all of my shopping, everywhere I go. Groceries, clothing, bread store, etc. Everywhere! and I get to embroider cute designs on them. If they get dirty or stinky, I can just toss them in the wash with our clothes.
Haha, I end up using them for everything else other than shopping - kids treats, books, etc.
~Let go, and Let God~
yes and i love that they are washable.. i wash mine after every use
