    I held up the line at the grocery store yesterday because I forgot my bag and asked for paper instead of plastic, which was not the easiest thing for them to track down. Lesson: don't be afraid to ask for paper AND avoid eye rolls from everyone in line by just keeping a reusable bag in your car at all times.

      It was the Mid City Winn-Dixie. Nice to see they are keeping a level playing field by both not having paper bags.

      Was this the Mid City Rouses per chance?? If so, what is the deal with them not consistently carrying paper bags at every line?

    Did you know you can bring a reusable drink container to many coffee shops and they will fill it up? Sometimes they even charge you less! Saved money at PJ's this AM AND prevented plastic from going into the environment. Everybody wins!
