I don't bring my own bags. I shop for seven kids, two dogs, and two adults. There is no way I would bring my own bags for that much shopping. Besides, I get the plastic bags that can be recyled or used as the smaller trash can liners. The trash is easy to change in the bathrooms and office with you use the grocery store plastic bags as liners. :)

GROCERY SHOPPING BAGS - Paper or plastic bags; which are better?
Always paper IN plastic bags. I know that's a pain for the cashiers sometimes, but the plastic bags are just so cheap now that they tear easily, and paper bags alone are difficult to carry. Besides, I need the paper bags to use for recycling the newspapers and junk mail!

I bring my own bags. If I know I am getting lots of heavy stuff, (milk, juice, soda etc) I even bring a box with handles. Makes it easier to carry. Recycle, Reuse........

I usually have them do both. I used to go to a store where you had to bring your own bags and then I used the big, sturdy plastic ones. I wish our store here would give us credit for using your own bags I could save alot, but they don't do that here. How about you???

I use the plastic bags sometimes the double bag them with the paper bag if i get alot of canned goods. I also reuse them as trash bags at home
