Really Doing It

A few weeks ago I told you about those t-shirt bags I conned my sister into sewing up for me, right? Well, she got them finished and brought them to me while we were all in Kansas City last week. Here they are in all of their glory (all ten of them!):

So today I got them ready and loaded them in the back of my car and headed to the store. Then I promptly forgot to take them inside with me. I decided that I would just tell the clerk to put my stuff back in my cart with no bags (like at Aldi's or Sam's) and then bag them in my own bags when I got to the car. I've never gotten such a funny look in all my life--apparently I'm the first person who's ever asked her to do that. I explained that I'd left my *new* reusable bags in the car and asked her if there was any special procedure for bringing those in with me. I wondered if she would think I was a total freak at that question, but she seemed quite familiar with that scenerio and told me all about how easy that was. So we'll see if I can actually remember to take them in with me the next time around!

They are quite handy bags though and seem very sturdy (obviously stretchy!). Here they are with all my stuff:

Wow! How "green" of you! I have one reusable bag and I have actually taken it in to Kroger's twice now. Actually, they were giving them away with a special purchase on Green Day. It's huge and holds a lot of stuff. And they take 5 cents off your bill when you bring it in to use. I wish I had several more. I'll have to look through my old t-shirts!

Well, considering most of my wardrobe consists of t-shirts, I don't think I will be joining you. It's a marvelous idea though!

What a great idea! I have a ton of T-shirts, so maybe one day I'll get around to doing this, too!

Those bags are way cool! Great idea!

I always forget to use my reusable bags. I like them better than the plastic ones at the store; you'd think I could remember.
