I was happy and surprised to see reusable grocery bags at Safeway for only $.99. The bags are black and made of recycled plastic. They are as spacious as a regular paper grocery sack, but they have handles to make carrying easier. I have been recycling plastic bags at Laurin's school for money for the school, but I would still rather not use as many of the plastic ones as I do. Now if I can just remember to leave my spiffy new reusable ones in the car.
