Bring Your Own Bags

Many grocery retailers plus Target will credit you 5 cents for each bag used for your purchases. This often saves at least 50 cent or more per trip to the store. This adds up over time, and is a great step for the environment.

    I cut apart a plastic grocery bag and used it as a pattern to make reusable bags out of denim fabric I had on hand. My grocery store credits me 7 cents per bag . Buying a 99 cent “reusable bag tag” at CVS Pharmacy saves 25 cents for using my own bag! For every 12th time I use my own bag instead of a plastic bag – I get $3.00 Extra Bucks. That’s free money!

    My family has several INSULATED shopping bags, in addition to the regular cloth bags. We live in Texas, and the insulated bags mean that our cold items will stay cold on the way home from the store. Now we can buy ice cream and it will stay frozen rather than melting.

    At most stores, we do have to ask for that five cent rebate…but you might as well ask for those nickels. We like to put any savings that we can get into a special fund, to have fun with.
