What kind of bags do you use when you grocery shop?

Do you like to bag your own?

I use the reusable when I remember to take them and usually ask for paper when I don't.

I don't like or dislike bagging my own groceries.

I use reusable all the time, except for my meat. I put it in plastic bags and then throw them away, too big of a chance to spread some funky germs with meat. lol I know, I'm a weirdo.

I don't like or dislike bagging my own either.

I just use plastic.

I dont like bagging my own... I Would rather pay the extra $.10 per item to have them do it for me and save me the hassle of fighting a kid, paying and bagging.


edited to add, we do save the plastics though, and re-use them... just not for grocieries

plastic

I actually feel really bad about it because we have reusable bags, but I haven't gotten in the habit of using them. When I go to Whole Foods or Trader Joes we get paper bags, and no matter paper or plastic we always save them and reuse them. Underneath my kitchen sink is FULL of bags.

I think I could wash mine too but I'd probably forget. It's just easier to toss gross stuff in plastic ones.

Plastic for the smaller stuff. We reuse them for other things. Bigger stuff doesn't go in bags. Bagging my own? Uhh that's the check out chicks job.

we use a little bit of all.

I like to bag my own cause then I can put the cold together and all the cans don't go in one bag.

When I go to Aldi's we use the reusable bags. I bag my own groceries there, since that's what's expected. They don't have baggers or anything of that sort.

At walmart I use what they have which is the plastic grocery bags. The cashier bags them.
