Hai, whenever I go for shopping, I always carry a bag with me. Some times, you will get some fresh vegetables or fruits. Some times, good stuff, which you always wanted to buy, will be available by chance. Better to carry a bag with you. How about you? Do you carry a bag or comfortable with the bags that the shop keepers give?

We are encouraged to take our own bags especially when going to the supermarket because of recycling, so many bags used up is not good on the environment. I never take a bag out with me because I don't intend to buy much, I don't shop much anyhow, I prefer to shop on the internet. I am happy with the bags I get if I do buy anything.

Internet shopping is very convenient. But vegetables and provisions like groceries have to be bought in person is it not? Or may be in your country, if you send a list, may be they will deliver it home I suppose. Thanks for responding.

Yes. If we have car, that advantage is there. We need not carry all the bags with us.

Hi buchi_bulla, i always carry two bags with me , when i will go for shoping. In one bag i keep soft stuffed so that heavy on will not comes over them and get damaged while in other i will collect heavy or hard stuff. I feel that bags i will carry are much safer than the shop- keepers bag.

You are correct. But usually in shops the security will keep our bags. Then we can enter the shop free hand and select things. If you are shopping on the pavement, then it will be inconvenient.

No i do not carry a bag with me, but when I was living with my mum and I went to hopping I would always took the bag with me, because my mum was saving them. One reason because of enviromantal and another because you don't need to buy it. But you are right sometimes when you go to the market it is good to have a bag for fresh fruits or vegetable, I just forget about it all the time.

Some times the carry bags will be more, if we buy many items in different stores. Then carrying too many bags will be cumbersome. If you carry a medium size carry bag made out of cloth or plastic etc., you can keep all these bags in that one bag and carrying is easy.

No I try not to carry any bags. It sounds as if you mean store grocery bags. These I don't need to carry with me. I do take my shopping cart for heavy items. I have learned this with cat litter. I don't buy vegetables that much fresh.

Hello buchi. When I go shopping, it depends on the place where I am going to buy before I make a decision if or not I have to bring a bag with me. If it is for vegetables, I have to bring with me a big one as the farmers don't have big bags, but some small ones, which cannot hold enough vegetables when I buy a lot. But if it is in the supermarket, I don't have to as they always offer bags. I usually recycle the bags as trash bags or for some other uses. Thanks for your discussion, dear friend. By the way, I am very happy to see you mylotting around today. Have a good day, my dear friend.

You buy from farmers directly is it? Then you must be getting fresh vegetables. Thanks for the wishes. I was not well for some time so mylotting was less. Now I am better. Have a nice day friend.

Hey Buchi, me I dont remember to carry a bag with me when I go shopping. I am used to the bags that are given by shopkeepers. Sometimes I just pop into the store and do shopping without planing hence without carrying a bag. In our stores we are given bags according to the size of what you buy.

If the bags are given as per things that are bought, then no problem. You can as well carry them. You need not take bag with you. Have good shopping with shop keepers' bags and enjoy friend.

God day, I go for shopping on a daily bases, I only take my wallet with me. I do not like to carry to much things. Therefore I do not bring a bag with me. I normally do not shop that much, that I need one. I am ok with the bags that shop keepers give me.

If you go for shopping on daily basis, I think, you have to carry only few things. Well, for 287 posts if you get star ranking '9', then your posts must be really good. Congrats for star '10' soon.
