Reusable Shopping Bags

Do you use reusuable shopping bags?  They're everywhere these days. 
It's the green way to shop, and many stores offer them for sale, sometimes free or discounted with your purchase.  Some stores even offer cents off your bill or a credit for using them.  This is all good, and I use them too.  My one complaint is that when the cashier or bagger puts as much as will possibly fit in the bag.  If you have a lot of heavy items, this can make the bag too heavy to carry comfortably.  

To all the baggers out there, please ask us before filling it to the brim, and offer plastic or paper bags for the excess if we don't have more reusuables.


  1. Hi Linda,

    Like you, I also like using the reusable bags. Not only do they help to save waste from going into the landfills, but they make me feel like I'm doing a good thing.

  2. Hi Barbara,

    It is a good thing, and I shouldn't complain just because sometimes it's heavy. It's not THAT heavy, but sometimes I have a ways to walk. If I had 5 plastic bags equal to the weight of one reusuable, I'd use the cart. What's the difference? I guess it just looks weak to use a cart for one bag.

    Thanks for visiting - I'll stop rambling now. : )
