Happy Aloha Friday!
In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So on Fridays let’s take it easy on posting, too. Ask a simple question…nothing that requires a lengthy response. It’s a great way to make new blogging friends!
Isn’t amazing that we’re already more than halfway through the month of February? I don’t know about you, but it seems that time flies by faster every day. Still looking for that pause button – if you find it, let me know.
As I was heading off to do my bi-monthly grocery shopping yesterday, I was running through my checklist to make sure I didn’t forget anything (you know, like the grocery list, since shopping on the fly usually warrants forgetting something important). One of the other things I make sure I remember are my reusable shopping bags.
I didn’t always remember to bring my reusable bags – which then caused purchase of new ones whilst shopping, resulting in a major stockpile of reusable bags. Sort of like forgetting to bring coupons – which I tend to do more often than not. Or I bring them, and forget to use them at checkout.
I love the bags I’ve gotten, especially the insulated ones that are nice and roomy and boxy with a zipper closure at the top. I like the ‘boxy’ ones because they tend to pack better, and won’t slide around in the back of the vehicle. I like the look of the Target ones:
Cute, right? But so inefficient. They aren’t boxy, they taper to a single seam at the bottom, which prohibits packing very much into the bag, let alone it won’t stand on its own filled. So I don’t use them. Even though I bought two of them.
Some cashier’s tend to have an attitude when you present your reusable bags for usage (hello, Wal*Mart) but for the most part they’ve gotten used to the trend of reusable bags. My question for you this week is:
Paper, Plastic or Reusable?
Do you have your own stash of reusable bags? Any that are your all-time favorites?
Have a great weekend!
