Good grief... Have we come to this?? I always get plastic bags. Why? Because they are easier to hold and moisture will not compromise their integrity. I also get them to double bag my milk and sometimes triple bag my wine. I sometimes shop at a supermarket that lets you rent a shopping cart for a quarter. The trick is you have to unload your groceries in your vehicle and bring the cart to the front of the store to get your quarter back. Do you realize how this simple system could save WalMart millions of dollars? People will not give up that quarter. This takes away the need for cart-return areas in the parking lot, people who gather the carts, and the fancy remote motorized machines that help push the carts.
