Reusable shopping bags

I don't have a whole lot to say about this one. I mean, they cost like a buck and are ridiculously useful. The ones we got from Whole Foods are huge and sturdy. The Stop and Shop ones are pretty small, and we have gotten a few at other places and they all seem to be made by the same company or the same template or something. I'm talking about the ones with a plastic insert that goes at the bottom of the bag and is kind of a pain. I much prefer the Whole Foods ones. I'm not going into grocery stores here, just saying that using these bags is a great thing, costs little... Some stores even give a small discount if you bring your own bags, which after 10 trips or so has paid for the bag. You just have to remember to carry them into the store with you. I have left mine on the back seat of my car way too many times, only to have to abandon my shopping cart, run out and get them and then proceed with the transaction.
