LOOK! Can you guess what this is? (Besides the two pink Crocs up in the air. That was A. climbing head first into her seat.) Yep, it's a whole lotta green in the back of our SUV. Last Thursday I decided, as I approached the checkout lanes at HEB, that I would invest in a few reusable shopping totes. After reading so many green themed SPTs and making greener pledges of my own, I figured the moment had come.
HEB sells them for .99 each, since I had a cart full of groceries I grabbed 5. One of the managers was helping to sack groceries in my lane when she noticed the bags. She told the checker to scan a coupon. Guess what? I got my reusable bags for FREE and I am helping our overworked planet.
That was so nice of her! I was prepared to buy them anyway, but FREE is just a bit sweeter. Thank you HEB!
These totes really do hold a lot of grub. I also like that they have large handles to carry them over your shoulder if needed. All in all, I ended up only using 4 plastic bags instead of 20. That felt good! And a bit greener.Hmmm...is composting in my future? A worm farm?
