    Making the Transition

    I have been doing this with more frequency now.  It felt a little awkward at first, but once that first time is done, it feels really good!  I tend to use the self-checkout lanes at the stores and I haven't had the chance to use them when I'm in a regular check-out land...

    I'm Improving At This

    When I bring the bags in to unload them, I have to remember to put them into the backseat of my car on my way out again.  Otherwise, I will forget. I'm getting better though, and I'll be much better when I get these during my next trip to Vegas: http://www.starz.bz...

    Its a great idea to use toters.   There's wayyy too much going to our garbage dumps.  BYOB (Bring your own bag) is the way to go. Thing is, I forget to bring them into the store and I remember that when I'm at the cash register.   At first I had a few in the trunk...

    Keep One On Hand

    I carry a backpack like most women carry a purse.  And almost always in that pack is a reusable shopping bag.  The clerks at my normal shopping haunts have learned that Plaid always has her own bag!

    I Don't Like How Plastic Bags Are Free

    Every time I go to the store I bring my own bags. I keep a big bunch of canvas and nylon tote bags in my car. I got a bunch of them for free from my mom, who gets them for free from pharmaceutical companies. My dad gets some free from conferences. My best friend gave me a pretty...
