Love my reusable bags!

Back at Christmas, I bought a really pretty reusable bag at Barnes and Noble. I love it, and I tote it with me a lot, and my Trader Joe’s red-and-pink Hawaiian print bag.

But it’s so frustrating! At least once a week I forgot to take a bag with me, and have to use disposable bags. I had a clerk tell me the other day, “Well, just throw it away when you get home,” when they didn’t put my stuff in my bag, even though I told them I didn’t want any plastic bags!

People just don’t get it. What, does she think it just disappears? It has to go to a landfill or be recycled; neither is good for the environment. Even if I reuse it as a trash bag (which is preferable to going out and buying trash bags when I have grocery bags already), it ends up in a landfill sooner or later.

I’m going to buy the Eden Mini Maxi Shopper by Rosenthal. It will clip on my knitting tote, so I never forget it! And it’s cute…

Publix sells them for $.99 and they're way better than any other store's!

No, I'm not biased.... ;p
