WFMW: Remembering Reusable Shopping Bags
Be sure to enter my giveaway by clicking here.
For years, I loved the idea of reusable shopping bags. There are so many benefits to using them. They are better for our Earth, many stores will give you a small discount for using them, they are cute, and the hold a lot more than those flimsy plastic bags. The only problem I had was remembering to bring them into the store with me. Even when I kept them in my vehicle, that did not guarantee I'd remember to take them in to the store. That all changed a little over a year ago, when I figured out how to trick myself into remembering.
Before we leave for the grocery store or farmer's market, I grab our stash of reusable bags from the back of the vehicle and place them on the passenger seat on top of my purse. When I get to the store, I have to pick up the bags to get to my purse, and that is all it takes to remember to bring them in.
