OTHER Green Bags?

I have enough shopping bags that I can usually take care of all my grocery shopping, especially since it is now more often split up between the Commissary and the Farmer’s Market… Did I mention that the most wonderful ones ever are on Etsy, from Hillbilly Creations? She has listings with new as well as upcycled fabrics, or she can custom-upcycle from your items!

ANYHOW, I’ve almost gotten into the habit of always having the bags with me, and that’s all feeling pretty settled.

So now other things are starting to occur to me.
