I'm feeling quite profound about my own groceries --- now that I have reusable bags! Check me out! Now, I didn't make my own bags like Robin, but I did buy six of these bags from my local store. Obviously, Kroger. They were 99 cents each and I get 5 cents back for each bag every time I bring them back to the store. Claire explained to me that they will pay for themselves after 20 trips to the grocery store.
There has been more and more news about our consumption of plastic bags. Really, it's gotten out of control. So, I'm doing my part. Plus, they are so much easier to pack, carry, and store
I know you're making regular trips to the grocery also. See if your store sells reusable bags. And for goodness sake, if you go to the bookstore (and I know you do), do you really need a bag if you just buy a book or two? Just tuck them under your arm and off you go.
