I've been telling myself for months to get reusable bags. I do need a few plastic bags now and then since I use them to line small trash cans. But I have plastic bag overload, and I figure I should do my little part to help the environment. I am not sure why I kept putting this off since I see the bags for sale all over the place. I just never could commit to buying them. Then a couple of weeks ago I found the perfect reusable bags at Kohls. They are slightly more expensive than the $1 apiece bags I have seen everywhere...these are $1.99 per bag. But they are worth every extra cent. Look how neatly and compactly they fold! Oooooooh.
There's even a little snap to hold it together.
Then it opens up into a giant bag with nice long handles. I was able to put about 2-3 plastic bags worth of groceries at Target into one of these bags. It wasn't too hard to carry because the handles are so long. In fact, unloading the groceries is much easier using these bags than the 1,000 small plastic bags I used to bring home.
