Frugal Living Tip #9 - Bring Your Own Bags

Bring Your Own Shopping Bags


Bringing your own shopping bags is not only environmentally friendly, it can also be friendly to your wallet. Several stores will give you a discount if you bring your own shopping bags to the store. It is generally a discount of $0.05 for each bag that you are able to use for your purchases. If you are not interested in the small savings, there are several stores that give you the option to donate your savings to a local charity. CVS has a tag you can attach to your reusable bag and have the cashier scan, after four scans you earn a $1 ExtraBuck.

For those of you that have trouble remembering to bring your bags into the store write it at the top of your shopping list, or place your shopping list in the bag before you leave the house. Those are two things that work for me.

Do you have any tips for remembering to bring your own bags?
