That's 'b' for b-a-g.

Some speculate that the average person gets 500 plastic bags per year. YIKES. While I was visiting my mom, I read about how California law may require retailers to sell reusable bags soon. She had one at her house, but forgot it on our grocery store trip!

I figured I'd do my part too, so when McAllister and I went grocery shopping 2nite - I planned on buying some reusable bags from Wegmans. I'm already off to a pretty forgetful start (and they wonder where I get it from ;-). After checking out, I realized I FORGOT to buy them. So I had to stand in line again. My plan is to keep a couple in each vehicle, hopefully in plain sight. Not that we're not environmentally conscious - we already reuse all our plastic bags for doggie duty.

Yes, I finally remembered to get it to the car; but left it in the car...

It came in handy at the Tailgate Party (Albany vs SU) remember! So when I finally got it to the store the clerk was very nice to clean out the beer bottle caps, asking me if I was saving them... Cute Kid!

I must buy more, one/car and one/office is a very good start.

At the very least, if you continue to prefer plastic over paper; save your plastic bags and once the trunk is full, take them back to the grocery store. The all have drop off bins!
