Preparing for the end

Not of the world, but of the time when grocery stores will stop bagging my purchases in plastic sacks. It’s coming, faster than we thought. And I’m not opposed to the move. Sure, it will save grocery stores money, but it will also produce less waste and start curtailing the microplastics which are now becoming an environmental problem.

The problem is … me.

Long ago, when we shopped at Fresh and Easy, we used our reusable cloth sacks to ferry our groceries to and fro. But when the store closed, we stopped.

We started up again at the beginning of the year by bringing a crate into Sprouts to lug everything into the house in one trip. But our main trip to the store, we relied on the plastic bags.

Now they are going away.

We thought we’d be proactive and purchase some reusable bags and they worked great. Fewer bags, fewer trips between the car and house. Too bad half the time we forget to bring them into the store.

Ah, well, we do have a year or so to train ourselves into the habit. And given the hubbinator’s rush out to the car, while I checked out of the store, we may need the time.

Until Wednesday!
