Those are really popular here too for the old folks that can't carry the weight anymore. They sell them at all the shops.

Re: Do you use your own bags at the grocery store?

i was so tempted to get one of those carts when i lived back east and had to walk the 4 blocks from the store to my apt! i got a lot of bruises from groceries banging around my legs w/ frequent little stops in between...hehe the old ladies are smart!

If i think of something clever to say, i'll put it here...

Re: Do you use your own bags at the grocery store?

I have three of the Aldi grocery bags that I bought for five cents each and use when I shop at Aldis. However, I also shop at Krogers and Wal-Marts and get their plastic bags. I also use them for bathroom trash can liners, taking smelly food to the garage trash cans, throwing them in suitcases for the dirty clothes, but most importantly for cleaning litter boxes for our five cats!!! I don't know what we would use if we didn't have those plastic bags. I agree, please don't take away our plastic bags.
