Reusable Grocery Bags

I'm doing a research project about reusable grocery bags and people who most often use them. Do you mind answering a few questions?

1. How often do you go to the grocery store each week?
2. Do you bring your own bags?
3. Age/Marital Status/Ethnicity?
4. City/State?

Thank you for your help!

2. Do you bring your own bags? No - I use the provided plastic bags at home for trash bags, packing for mailing packages, etc. I do take my own bags to Aldi's as they do not provide bags.
3. Age/Marital Status/Ethnicity? 26/S/W
4. City/State? Plainfield, Indiana

I was wondering the same, Mimi. I'm also wondering if this person wants to participate in DC, or just ask personal questions. I think I'm "testy" today.

It's a project for my Anthro class, the paper isn't necessarily about reusable grocery bags but about the individual most likely to be found using them. Our hypothesis is that the majority of those who bring reusable bags when shopping are married, Caucasian women between the ages of 25-45. Like I said, it's just a guess, and we're very excited to see what we find out!

Again, thanks for the help!

P.S. These questions are for research purposes only, nothing personal intended!
