I Bring My Own Bags to the Store

    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...

    My Cloth Bags

    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!
