Do you use your own grocery bags?

I take my own fabric bags to the store with me everytime I go. Not only does it contribute to a reduction in plastic in landfills but you can use it toward money off your grocery bill! Of course, the grocery store isn't going to let you in on this fact but several of them do give you a 5 cent credit off your bag for EACH bag you bring. You have to remind them or they won't give you the credit! Go ahead, be a pest! They shouldn't offer it if they don't follow up.

that sounds great. I use mine to shop at save-a- lot and they make you pay for bags. That sounds great 5 cents credit for a bag
