I have been using reusable grocery bags from the time I began doing my own grocery shopping. Not only are the so-called “eco bags” better for the environment, but they are also more convenient, and can help to save money.
Reusable Grocery Bags
Being sturdier, reusable grocery bags can be filled with more items than plastic bags can, which means fewer bags for me to carry. Win!
My frozen foods begin to thaw out by the time I get them home and in the freezer since I live a good 20 minutes from the nearest grocery store. I have had more than one leaking melted ice cream incident, and those are no fun at all.
Certain stores will take money off your order for each bag you provide. Even though this only saves me maybe $.30 cents or so a trip, that savings adds up over time.
Ok, so you get it. I love reusable grocery bags. I am all about them.
But why, you ask, do I need 10 more reusable grocery bags when I already have reusable bags? Well to put it simply, my reusable grocery bag situation is a hot mess. I have an unorganized bag of bags, all mismatched, covered in different store and brand logos. They do not spark joy.
CarryWell Reusable Bags
CarryWell offers a reusable grocery bag system of color-coordinated bags. The set comes with 6 grocery bags, 1 insulated freezer bag, 2 produce bags, and a bag to hold and organize all the bags.
I was super excited to replace my current chaotic bag situation with the CarryWell system.
When my package from CarryWell arrived my first thought was “waaaaaaaait a minute… there is no way 10 bags are in here.” The package was so small. Even when I opened the package I was sure the company had forgotten to put in some bags or something. Once I began removing each bag from the chevron bag and laying them all out I realized they did indeed send all 10 bags.
When I brought the set of bags to the grocery store for the first time I realized how thoughtful the company was when designing these bags. The bag has a little loop at the top which can be opened and closed, allowing you to attach the bags to your shopping cart! I thought this was totally awesome – no more wasting valuable shopping cart space with my mess of reusable grocery bags!
Checkout was quick and easy with this set of grocery bags. Seeing my cart filled with matching reusable grocery bags was awesome. It may seem odd to you, but I love organization and order – it gives me a sense of calm.
Loading and unloading the bags from my car was easy as well. The bags are all well-made and have sturdy handles, so I didn’t have to fear that they would tear.
After unpacking all the bags I had no problem folding them back up and getting them back in the organized “bag of bags” state they arrived in. It is remarkable how they can be so easily folded up and stored in one bag, making them neat and easy to bring with you to the store, as well as convenient to store in-between trips to the grocery store.
I would recommend CarryWell’s Reusable Grocery Bag system without hesitation. These are high-quality bags. They are made well and will last for years and years. You can purchase the CarryWell Reusable Grocery Bag system on Amazon, in your choice of color or pattern.
