So, the other day I went grocery shopping and I came home literally HATING plastic! Okay, maybe not hating all plastic as a whole but strongly disliking the icky plastic bags they give you? Yes. They're just so wasteful in my opinion! And they're pretty flimsy...the one housing my eggs broke on my way inside...3 eggs died an unnecessary death :( Plus you really can't reuse as many as you take home so you have to get one of those grocery sack catch-alls thingys that keeps piling up higher and higher...at least mine does. So, I was thinking why not make some reusable tote bags to take on grocery trips?
Like the New Leaf Folding Tote by Heather Bailey! What's great about this pattern is not only is it perfect for carting your groceries but each reusable bag folds into a compact wallet for easy storage! How great is that? I'm hoping to get a few made this summer to keep in my car at all times! Because I, for one, would love to never see a plastic grocery sack again!
Have any of you gone to reusable bags for your shopping adventures? If not, do you have any good ideas for reusing plastics sacks? I have about a million that I would LOVE to find a use for!
