WMFW: Green Grocer

Reusable Grocery Bags

An opinion, fact or tip for each bag:

~I have 6 black ones from Publix that I purchased for 99 cents each.

~They need to train the baggers. They don't know how to fill such a large bag. I hate that I feel like they are rolling their eyes at me, when I bought the bags AT THEIR STORE!

~I brought them to Albertsons. They gave me a 5 cent credit on my bill for each bag. After 20 visits, the bag will have paid for itself.

~The bags hold alot. I used the bags to take snacks in the car and and another filled with toys on our two hour car trip last weekend. It was perfect!

~ I leave them folded up in the back of my car. They are always there when I need them.

~I feel so granola crunchy using these. Try it, you'll like it! It works for me.

I just love my reusable grocery bags, you can fit like 6 plastic bags-worth of groceries in one bag and the handles don't cut into your hands! I even use mine at other stores like Michael's and Home Depot. And you gotta love that 5 cent discount too.

I use my reusable bags everywhere. You're right - the checkers seem a little put out by them, but I think they need to adjust their thinking a little.

I'm soooo to lazy for that.I would use it maybe 2 then I would forget them at the house. And god forbid anyone roll thier eyes at me on a bad day. I'd probaly be banned or somthing.

I am "green" in other areas of my life, but this is something I NEED to start doing. And it seems to me that the little grocer person should get over themselves and NOT roll their eyes at you!

Thanks for the tip!

Love, love, love my reusable bags. I also use them at other stores as well. And as an added bonus, I don't have the overflowing pile of plastic bags in the pantry!

I love these, I have similar ones from Meijer. I try to use the self checkout as much as possible with these. I hate having the baggers use them. I have one freezer bag from Kroger & the rest like the ones you have. The bagger put all the freezer stuff in the reg bag & the reg stuff in the freezer bag. I was like what?!?
