You know, I’ve never thought about it before. When I buy groceries, I take my reusable bags. I hate having the plastic bags in the house; they just take up too much space in the cabinets and in the trashcan. But yesterday, I stopped by Target to buy a cardigan, and came out with two cardigans, one short sleeve sweater, and two short sleeve tops, and a necklace. I also came home with another obnoxious plastic bag. I’ve just never thought about taking the reusable bags clothes shopping before. They certainly aren’t fashionable, and I wonder if clerks would treat me poorly in their store, but I like the idea of not having the plastic bags, or the giant banner’s that say “I just shopped at ______, I am SOO cool.”
Today, I have to buy a new pair of shoes. Maybe I will simply take a large leather tote, so I can be fashionable and green. Lets hope I don’t come out with more than I am going for this time.
