Going Green ...


Recently started "going green". Bought some cloth bags from Wal-Mart and been using them. Now since buying those bags have paid attention to other stores having their own. I, for one, am not going to buy a bag from each and every store. Went to Safeway with Wal-mart bag ... lol Hey, there you get 3 cents off your purchase for using your own bags (a bag costs 99 cents, so 33 times going to Safeway will buy one bag ... haha). Not sure if I was frowned upon for using "another" stores bag but got to thinking about it. Had some orphan blocks scattered around here so got a few out and sewed them to front of the bags. Now no one will know what store they came from. TA DA ... problem solved. 1. Used up the orphan blocks. 2. Hid the identity of what store the bag was bought from.
