Go ahead. Hate me. Call me a polar-bear killer. Whatever you want. It's probably well deserved.
It's not that I didn't want to use cloth, it's more like, I want a bag that will be strong and actually be able to carry stuff for a family of eight. Not a wimpy bag.
When I recently bought some canvas bags, my mind started swirling. These bags would be heavy-duty enough for my needs. But, they were ugly. And plain. Then Christmas came and I really didn't have time to think about it anymore, so I pushed it aside. Until a trip to the store left me with a wad of plastic bags.
It was time.
I bought some canvas bags and personalized them with appliques. Some with L's. Some with fruit. Simple. Pretty. And quick.
Since most of my shopping is done at the wholesale club (without bags), these will be for my trips to Walmart (don't criticize me -- I have a large family to take care of), Target, and my once-a-month-or-less trip to the actual grocery store. I think they'll be just fine.
