Remember to bring your bags when grocery shopping?

noway noway
I frequently forget to bring my canvas bags into the stores. I put them in my trunk, but I'm usually already in the store by the time I remember. Then I'm just too lazy to go back out and get them.

I don't find it necessary unless I have to PAY for a bag!

Usually I remember it but I still have times when I forget them. It's just not a habit yet I guess.

I keep some in front of the back seat of my car and a couple on the seat of my "errand" bicycle. I'll go back to the car and retrieve them if I get to the carts and I don't have them.

When i go on my own, there are very few instances i will leave the house without them. Ive never forgotten them in the car, but if i did i would for sure go back and get them, other wise carrying all those groceries becomes too much a chore since i can carry 4-5 bags on each arm at once from my car to the house, unlike pastic bags where i can only carry maybe 3 at a time.

Mostly we do remember to take them in - but not 100%

I usually don't buy very large amounts of items at one time, so I just put everything in my purse to carry in and out.

I only have a couple of bags and usually buy way more than that. I always forget them though. :/

I forget so often! Then I always have a hard time convincing the cashier that I would rather pay 5 cents each for twice as many bags than have them all fall apart because they were packed too heavy!

I forget quite a bit so I chose occasionally. What helps me remember is that I get a 15 cent refund.

Never! I prefer new and uncontaminated plastic grocery bags from the stores. If there comes a day when all the stores are not allowed to supply plastic grocery bags, I'll buy my own at Costco and use those instead. I always recycle those used plastic bags as garbage bags afterwards, so I still consider myself green.

I gave up on them as I could never remember them. I do reuse the plastic ones though as garbage bags in the car and bathrooms.

I generally do, unless I'm making an unplanned visit to the shops. I don't drive, so I actually have to actively plan a shopping trip, and that includes bringing the bags.

Though I also have one of those little personal shopping cart thingies, so I mostly use that one instead of the bags when I do.

I try to bring them but sometimes I forget. I got a lot better about remembering my own bag when I started shopping at a store that didn't have plastic bags

98% of the time I remember to take my bags with me. For the other 2% I actually started storing a couple in my car "just in case".

I LOOOOOVE using my canvas bags at the grocery store!

I'll pay the .10 for the paper bag, make sure they fill it to the top and then use the paper bag for fire starter at home. I refuse to haul bags back and forth. Then I will go home and drink a 32 oz soda, put extra salt on my chips, take an extra long shower and flush my toilet twice.

Yes I am kidding, but I hate to be told what to do.

I never remember. I reuse the plastic bags for bathroom trash cans or when I scoop out the litter box.

I used to be way more into it, but I stressed if I forgot them. So, I decided to let it go.
