Since Earth Day is approaching this weekend, my Works for Me Wednesday tip is good for the environment and makes life easier! I use reusable grocery bags instead of choosing “paper or plastic” at the check-out. These bags are sturdy and open up fully, so they hold much more than the plastic bags do. They have nice long handles, so they are easier to carry. I am able to fit all of my groceries into five bags, and best of all, those five bags can be carried into the house in only two trips! No more trip after trip to unload the car. No more recycling the tons of plastic bags we accumulate or finding a place to keep them until I get a chance to recycle them.
I bought my bags at Ecobags, and I paid about $15 for all five bags. I see that now they come in more colors.
So that I don’t forget them when I leave for the grocery store, I keep them in my vehicle at all times, putting them back after I put the groceries away.
