    YUP! Forget the handles!

    We do have a few stores around that give you a nickel off if you bring in a bag.


    I do not use a cloth bag often as I forget to take it with me most of the time.

    ( and FYI, the plastic bags are great for holding Pheasant guts and skins when field dressing birds. No sense in using a trash bag when you can recycle . OMG I said it again.)
    A double of those plastic grocery bags are useful for cleaning out the cat's litter box. Scoop, tie, and toss in the trash. Yup, I just recycled them.

    Just be careful on any size bags you buy. I bought a couple from Sams's. They are not cloth but very sturdy and I clean mine with a wipe down of a mild beach solution. Anyway I have found that grocery baggers tended to load these large heavy duty bags up with heavy items. Think piling in dozens of cans or maybe 8 2 liter soda bottles in one bag! I don;t take those into stores anymore . I use them to load my sams club purchase in at my car or I use them to contain those plastic bags in my trunk.

    When I was in the 9th grade the school Superintendent went through all the books & decided we needed to pay for the damage. Full price for every book. My bill came to $23.68 which in those days was a significant sum. When i handed him the check for the books I said I wanted them, he asked why, & I said I planned to organize all the other students & we would put the books in a pile in front of the school, pour a jug of Kerosene over them & have a bonfire. Everyone in school got there check back .

    At the time (the 40's) I did not realize the significance to an educator & their career of that act.

    He moved on that year but tried to recruit me to come to their school as a senior to play sports. Fortunately I really liked my coach so didn't do something stupid.

    While I recognize the need for authority - I have an inherent distrust of misplaced authority & over the years have exercised my constitutionally granted right to challenge . & at the time did not know the significance of what I was planning to do.

    That's why I never will consider Snowden anything but a traitor - he failed big time to go through the checks & balances built into the system, & they exist.

    This is semantics but my wife, being in the waste/trash business her entire career, tells the died in the wool tree huggers. This is actually not recycling it is reuse.
