I use reusable bags that I picked up from Sam's. When we shop it's mostly for the month and the extra big bags are handy. My husband on the other hand does get plastic bags when he's sent to the store. We recycle them around here for trash bags and carry alls.

I use them! It took me a while, but I finally got the hang of remembering to bring them with me. Nothing more frustrating than having a basketful of food and remembering your bags are outside in the car!

I use a variety of reusable bags, because too many plastic bags in the house drives me crazy! We do reuse plastic bags though: I crochet them into new bags and rugs, and we use them to hold recyclables and in our tiny trash cans (we don't generate much garbage because we do vermiculture and recycle)

Sometimes! :) I do well using them at the stores where I only buy a few things and only need 1 or 2 bags. I do keep them in the car so I'll have them with me - sometimes I forget to take them into the store, though!

I've just started using reusable bags because of the free Marsh bag and Kroger bag. I LOVE 'EM now!!! They hold more and I don't come home with a bazillion plastic bags which is GREAT on so many levels. Thanks!!

Steph and Gabe said...

I have about 10 or 12 reusable bags. The best part if that most of them were free or part of a buy this, get this free or discounted! I love that I can ft 2-3x as many groceries in each bag, and I no longer have a huge bundle of plastic bags to take the recycling center!

No, we don't use them - yet. I plan on getting some soon b/c they hold so much more than plastic bags.

I'm doing better. I try to keep the bags in my car, and one folded one from Target in my bag. I figure in the long run it will save me money because stores don't have to pay for bags. Hopefully, they will pass the savings on to me.

Kathleen said...

I follow your blog. Thanks for teh great deals.

I take my bags everywhere I shop. I subscribe to you throgh Google reader and am very excited to tell my friends about this from my blog.

Heidi said...

I use reusable bags, I started off last year buying one or two bags every time I went grocery shopping. I try to bring them all the time, but sometimes I forget. But it seems like the baggers will only put a few things in my reusable bags and i still end up coming home with 10 of those darn plastic bags. I use those in my little trashcans all over the house, and for cleaning the liter box, so they still come in handy!

Miriam said...

I DO use reusable bags :) I like them because you can fit so much more in them and still carry them comfortably. And it doesn't hurt that some stores give you $.05 credit for using your own bags :)

Heather said...

I use reusable bags when I shop at Aldi's I have a hard time remembering to use them when I go to Walmart because I would have to take so many inside! I am getting better, but it's a process where you have to re-train yourself if you aren't used to using them.

Brenda said...

I have not used these shopping bags yet. I usually buy so many groceries at once that I would probably need to purchase about 15 bags so everything would fit. This would be awkward carting back and forth to the store.

April said...

I have 2 which are definitely not enough for a big grocery trip. I would like more but seem to keep forgetting to buy a new one each time I go to the store

Elaine said...

I love reusable bags...the best come from Whole Foods. They are the size of regular paper bags and are super sturdy. I keep them in the back of my van for convenience...still forget them sometimes. Plastic bags are recyclable at participating grocery stores.

I do use reusable bags when I go to the store. I actually love them because they hold more items, are easier to carry because they can go over your shoulder, and they don't rip in half and dump your groceries!!
Thanks!

SG said...

I used to have plastic grocery sacks pile up in my pantry. Now that I have a few reusable grocery sacks, I try to use them everywhere I go and minimize the number of plastic or paper bags I come home with.

McKenna said...

Love the idea of reusable bags, I just have to remember to use it!

SG said...

I have recently added your blog to my iGoogle page and really like all the great frugal tips that you post!

Susan said...

I make an effort to use reusable bags--I still forget to bring them with me to the store sometimes, though! But I am getting the hang of it!

Sarah said...

I don't use them because I don't have any! How sad is that? But I reuse the plastic bags around my house all the time - they are trash can liners in my bathroom and office, and we use them for picking up doggie doo and changing the cat box. If I didn't get the free plastic bags at the store, I'd have to buy bags especially for these things.

Darlene said...

I use reusable bags. I have gotten them from Meijer, Kroger, Walmart.... just about everywhere I shop. I have to admit that I forget them sometimes and get the plastic bags that I reuse around the house.

I subscribe to your blog on my google reader....

I use the reuseable bags for groceries and have enjoyed the credits that Fry's and Albertson's give you per bag. They hold a lot more and its nice to not have so many plastic bags to contend with. I love them for carrying stuff for the kids also.

I shop with reuseable bags and love them because they hold a lot more than plastic bags and reduce the plastic bags I have to contend with. I also get credit for them at Fry's and Albertson's. I love money back :) They also come in very handy for Library books for my kid's trips to the Library.

I use resuable bags and love them! They are much easier to move from the cart into the car and then into the house, since they can hold a lot more than the plastic ones. I try to keep them in my trunk so I don't have to remember to grab them before each shopping trip.

I use reusable bags almost all the time. I sometimes forget to take them in the store but I remember when I get to the carts and go back to the car to get them. It makes me feel good to use them.

I designed a bag at Kroger.com so will get a free one next time I go there.

I have 3 bags right now, but will be getting more eventually. I purchased mine at Wal-Mart for 50 cents! I keep them in my car so I will always have them with me when I grocery shop. I also use them as a tote for retail shopping. I love your blog and subscribe through the RSS feed, and also via email as of today. I forward your blog site to friends and family so they can share in the savings, too. Keep up the great work, as it is very much appreciated. I use your Meijer and Kroger shopping list every week.

I use reusable bags every chance I get. They hold so much more than the plastic store bags, and they're much easier to carry when wrestling with a 2 year old! We do use the plastic bags we have for garbage can liners and stinky diapers, so they are being recycled in a way themselves.

Melyots said...

Hi! You are my first site read everyday and although it is my first bookmark, now I have subscribed too!

I too, am getting the hang of remembering to take them into the store. I have a few (including the one that I made from the Kroger website--and FYI, it is a GREAT size! It's much bigger that I expected! ) that are always on the front seat of my car. When we do get the plastic grocery bags, we recycle them all.

I have already sent out the info for this contest! I tried to get everyone to vote for my bag! :) I sent [Marcy] an email about this contest last week!
Thank you for all you do!

Chris and Annalisa said...

I have 5 or 6 reusable Target shopping bags that I bought a year or so ago. I felt like my house was exploding with the plastic ones, since I went to the grocery and drug store multiple times per week in my shopping runs.

So now I just keep my reusable bags in my trunk and I always have them on-hand when I shop!

I have a reusable bag from each grocery store I frequent plus a few extras that I have picked up along the way.
My husband has been annoyed with them cluttering the trunk of the car, but finally understood why I use them.
I recently had kidney surgery, so I have a 20lb weight restriction. He has been going with me grocery shopping, and quickly realized how much easier it is to carry up 4 reusable bags then a dozen ripping plastic bags up the stairs of our apartment.
Occasionally I only take half of my reusables when I shop, just to replenish our trash can liners.

I use reusable bags for my big shopping trips. They live in the trunk of my car and if I don't remember them going into the store I make myself go out and get them. It doesn't take many trips out to the car to get the bags to remember to bring them into the store in the first place. :) I tend to forget on the tiny trips to the drug stores. I now have one that folds into a wallet shape so it can live in my purse. Thank you for this awesome giveaway.

I keep two recycle bags in my car...I use one and even if I have forgotten to put it back in the car, there is another one in there. When I empty them, they are put on the door knob going out to the car, hard to forget that way. I just take the empty out with me & toss it in the back seat so it's ready again.

I love reusable bags! I use them for everything - keep them in the car, by the door, in the basement, in the laundry room. I love that they stay open when they are put down. This is going to be fun to try to design one.

I recently signed up for your blog giveaways. I enjoy your ideas & thoughts about couponing.

I'm a new reusable bag convert! I use them for everything. It's taken some adjustment to remember to bring them with me, but I can already tell a huge difference---with no plastic bags around anymore. I can't believe how many we used to bring home!

Anonymous said...

I've collected several re-usable shopping bags and keep them in the trunk of my car, but only occasionally remember to carry them into the store. I figure I just need to keep trying and eventually it'll become a habit. Meanwhile, (because I'm single and never buy much at once) when I forget the reusable bags I carry my groceries out in my purse and hands.

I have a lot of reusable bags and have done pretty well taking them in with me. I purchased several of them from Walgreens a few months ago when they were cheap (3/$1 if I remember correctly).

I'm a subscriber and I already designed a reusable Kroger bag and put the link on my Facebook page. I use the reusable bags as often as I can. I try to keep them in the car w. my coupon organizer in case of unplanned trips.

I currently use plastic bags and horribly throw them away. I recently watched a special on it and am excited to make a change!

I use my reusuable bags all the time even though stores in my area do not offer a discount or a credit for doing so. I didn't want to be a walking advertisement so I have some very pretty ones I purchased online.

I do use reusable bags. I keep them in the car and remember them (almost) always now! They hold so much more than the flimsy plastic ones, too, I just love them. I have been collecting them for a couple of years now, so I have quite a collection of bags-all free of course! thanks!

I just subscribed a few days ago,And I try to use reusable shopping bags when I remember to put them back in my car. If not we recycle them for trash cans or take them back to the store to be recycled.

I USE THEM BUT NOT AS MUCH AS I WOULD LIKE TO. WE KEEP THEM IN OUR VAN BUT DO NOT ALWAYS REMEMBER TO TAKE THEM IN. WE DO TAKE THE BAGS TO GET RECYCLED AT KROGER OR WALMART. THEY HAVE BINS TO PUT THEM IN

I just subscribed too!!! Thanks!

I shared your giveaway details with my family and my "good deals" email list (women at church). Thanks for a great website. You do all the work! Thanks for sharing.

I have started using reusable bags. My problem w/ them is that they don't seem to be sturdy enough. I'll keep trying though. :)

I am already a subscriber and I love to read this blog, I get lots of tips on coupons and sales through this site! I also love reusable bags -- great for luggage, moving, stronger than plastic bags and easy to carry into the store.

I just recently was able to get a few of the reuseable Kroger bags for free. I took them with me last week but forget them in the car. **sigh** Maybe I'll remember them next time. I need to make a mental note when I grab my coupon box to also grab those bags!
