when you’re highly forgetful.
So, I felt so green while purchasing the reusable shopping bags at Kroger. I had really been feeling wasteful getting plastic bags each visit- even though we reuse a good portion of those. A few weeks back, Kroger had their bags on sale, so I decided to get a few. They are great! They hold a lot of groceries and they have insulated ones for cold/frozen foods. I’ve been good about bringing the bags with me on grocery trips until the other day. I was halfway through shopping with both kids, when I realized I didn’t have my bags. I felt like such a ditz.
I guess 3 out of 4 times using them this month isn’t bad.
I am really glad that places are moving to reusable bags. Earlier this month, IKEA moved away from plastic/paper bags altogether. Only reusable bags are offered in their stores. You can purchase one of their bags for $.59 or don’t use a bag at all. I think that is so cool and a big move for them.
Loving the reusable idea, just hope my memory will kick into gear when it comes time to head to the store!
