I hate going to the grocery store.The entire process gives me a headache every time I have to do it.If it weren't for the fact that we would all starve to death without it,I would probably never go.My trip to the store goes something like this..
I check the ads for deals on things I will need anyway.I get to the store,shop for at least an hour and finally get in line.Here the fun begins.Do I want paper or plastic bags for my purchases.Paper would be better,except that every time I get them, they shove too much into at least one and it rips open in my car or somewhere between the store and home.This leaves me to carry those items into the house in my arms or make another trip inside to grab a bag for them.I get plastic,hating that so many will end up in the trash because I can only reuse so many plastic bags in my house.I get home with my 30 plastic bags of assorted household crap and start to carry them inside.Before I can even make it in the door,the handle to one of the bags rips and my items come tumbling down my steps and into my flowers.Nice.This happens every time!
Baggu Large Reusable Shopping Bag in the blue stripe pattern.The blue and tan striped design works well for anyone and it fits into a provided slim zippered storage pouch when not being used.
I can keep this in my purse and even toss in a few extra for big shopping trips without stuffing my purse or having to carry them in the front of my cart while shopping.I can even keep some in the little mesh pocket in my van for on the go needs for the whole family.
I will not hate going to the store as much now that I have a ReUseIt bag to take with me.My Baggu bag has worked much better for me than those little bags you can buy at the checkout of some stores.You know what I mean,the bulky canvas bag that never goes flat again after you have used it a few times.Yes they do hold a good bit of weight,and they do last for awhile,but if you get them dirty and have to wash them,they seem to start unraveling and falling apart.With the Baggu bag,I can simply wipe it off and am good to go.The 100% rip stop nylon bag holds up to 25 pounds and the size is great.I can fit a ton of items into one of these bags and make my day a lot less stressful.
With the Holidays rapidly approaching,these would make a great gift for the college student on the go or the "green" person on your shopping list.
