This morning my friend Angela and I went to do triple coupon shopping.
Whenever I do my grocery shopping I always try to take my reusable bags. I have a good few of them… but by far my favorite bags are called Envirosax. Mainly because they fold up into tiny little rolls that fit into my purse. 🙂
The bags though are fantastic… and fit a TON! Not to mention the straps are long enough to fit over my shoulder… so I can carry 4 FULL BAGS of groceries (two on each arm), and still have my arms free to open a door.
During triple coupons I was able to get almost all my groceries into 4 Envirosax.
I didnt get any plastic bags.
Tonight though Travis and I finished up the grocery shopping locally.. I had to get a good bit of stuff that I didnt get while shopping the triples.
I sadly forgot my bags…
And when I got home was just SHOCKED at how the woman packed our groceries (I wasnt in the line watching her do it… I had walked off with Caleb while Travis paid and she rung things up).
1 plastic bag for 4 bananas
1 plastic bag for a can of coffee
1 plastic bag for a thing of coffee creamer
1 plastic bag for calebs goggles he picked up…
DOUBLE bag for 1 gallon of milk….
Double bag for Orange Juice
get the point?
It was ridiculous.
So PLEASE! If you have 25 dollars… go out… buy you some reusable bags and save this planet some waste… I am not the most ECO friendly gal… Yes I used cloth diapers… yes I use reusable bags… and try to give my kids organic milk and meat… But I am by no means “super eco” hah… but to me it is just good common sense to use a nice set of reusable bags… that last over… and over… and over again.
I think if you use the coupon code: greenapple over at www.reusablebags.com you can save 10%
*THE PHOTO ABOVE: Was taken last year.. I only had 2 envirosax at the time… as you can see 2 wont do it… you need atleast 4 bags. Most reusable bag sites sell them as a set of 5.*
