DUMB.

I'm gonna start carrying around a burlap sac... just in case.

Aar_Canada 06-06-2012 10:45 PM

I'm going to do the basket on the head like in Africa.

Personally I got used to bringing my own bags to the grocery store. However; their should be an option to at least give me something to carry my groceries if I forget my bags

use the bags from the produce section, they're free!

This is great. It's such a shame they wasted a year pretending Rob Ford was the Mayor.

I imagine paper bags will be available for purchase.

Aar_Canada 06-06-2012 11:04 PM

Try carrying more than 2 paper bags full of groceries on a walk of more than a few feet. What will happen is people will buy boxes of plastic bags - for groceries, kitty litter, dog crap - and we're right back where we started.

I refuse to use reusable bags because they're disgusting. The bag fee in St.Catharines magically disappeared after a few months.

"Do you need bags?"

"Yes, thanks!"

"Here you go!"

The Superstore I go to recently had a 'spend $150 get 3 PC bins free' promotion.

Bins have changed my grocery shopping life. It's so much easier to stack groceries into bins then bags, and they're harder to forget then bags. The ones they have now have straps

Ya Longos outside the city never bothered with the 5 cent bag. You get a good quality bag that you can reuse for your kitchen garbage or does city council want us to carry trash to our waste bin


I dunno who is dumber the city council or the mayor himself.

I've got 3 of these from Longo's and i'm good! Love them...

Three bins is good for $150-$200 in groceries and it's so easy to organize.

I throw all three bins on the checkout counter - produce in one - grocery in another - meat and bread in another.

Bins make checking out more enjoyable, as well as putting groceries away.

Windex 06-06-2012 11:19 PM

there's also the added benefit of your groceries not falling out of the weak plastic bag :cookie:

LX 06-06-2012 11:19 PM

Reusable bags are disgusting?

The mass of plastic that is covering the earth is what I consider disgusting. There was a time I can recall when there were no plastic bags. It wasn't a great burden in any way.

We spend 200 bucks a week on groceries and we'd probably need 5 or 6 bins instead of the 8 or 9 bags we use. I'd find them gross to begin with and they'd take up more than a trunk's worth of space.

Don't knock it until you try it. You would probably take 4 bins max. I never thought about using bins until they were given to me - life changing event.

You set a bag down in your trunk it sinks and changes shape, then you're putting other bags slightly on top of that bag, and everything shifts when you drive.

Doesn't happen with bins.

I'm an expert bag layer.

I'm only knocking the fact they'd get gross and simply stating that I know we wouldn't have the room.
