For a long time I put off jumping on the reusable grocery bags bandwagon.
I imagined it was so much trouble carrying the bags into the store and rationalized that when I wasn't shopping with small children then would be the time to be concerned about the environment, right now it was just about surviving the grocery store trip and making it home with at least most of the items on the list!
But, a few weeks ago the reusable bags were on sale for a dollar at Target and so I bought some.
And do you know what?
I love using them!
It really is not hard just keeping them in the back of my car and carrying them into the store when I shop.
And, the benefits I never anticipated: so many more groceries fit into those reusable bags than the plastic store ones; the handles make it much less painful on your hands hauling in even heavy bags; the bags don't topple over in the back of my vehicle and . . .
they look much prettier on my counter if it takes me a while, or half a day, to get around to unloading the non-perishable items!
