I am continually forgetting to bring my re-usable grocery bags to the store. So I end up with this:
Previously, my paper bag successes consisted of turning the bags inside out and using them as wrapping paper at Christmas and putting them through a paper shredder to create free, eco-friendly Easter grass for our Easter Baskets. The problem with these endeavors is that Christmas comes but once a year, and the Easter grass never really panned out. I was never able to convince Brad of the moral neutrality of bringing my bags to his place of employment and using their paper shredder. He was worried the thick paper would brake the shredder. I'll admit that I considered purchasing a shredder to shred the bags myself, but I realized by the time I did that I might as well have bought some plastic Easter grass from the dollar bin at Target and planted a tree for less money. So, we still had that annoying plastic grass that is impossible to clean up, and a plethora of paper bags.
But yesterday, I came up with this:
