Do you have a cabinet dedicated to saving all those plastic or paper shopping bags you have collected over the months/years? Sometimes I save my bags, sometimes I don't. I don't save every single one of them because there is no way I would ever use them or have the space for them. I reuse the plastic ones in the small trash cans in the bedrooms & bathrooms just so it makes gathering up trash on trash day easier. Jonathan saves the paper bags for work. I have never bought a reusable shopping bag before yesterday. The ones I have seen with store logos on them for the most part are UGLY, and I couldn't see spending a small fortune on designer shopping bags. I found this cute shopping bag at Sally Beauty Supply for 99 cents! I'm planning on going back next week & buying a few more with my February $5.00 coupon! My plan is to start using my shopping bags (although I will on occasion ask for plastic bags when I run out of "trash bags") and my challenge for you is to start using them too, even if it's only for small purchases!
