Unless you worry about cat hair on your produce of course.

My problem is that I FORGET THE BAGS AT HOME when I shop.
Just like coupons.
They get the hair inside and out. I ordered some of the planet bags. Thanks for the link sattie.

I did the special 6 bags and two water bottles. My daughter runs Cross Country so the bottles will come in handy. No more plastic bottles that shouldn't be reused.

While I'd love to be able to do my shopping with nothing but cloth bags, I do frequently need & use those plastic grocery bags. With 4 cats & geriatric dogs, I find them invaluable for litter-box scooping (have several boxes) as well as cleaning up after the elderly canines. Adding that sort of refuse to the regular household can simply doesn't cut it, nor is it sanitary.

All of the stores I shop in give back 5 cents for every cloth bag they fill with my order.

You may be joking but let me tell you that is a great idea! You can't imagine how many you might sell if the price is right. You can make them in many designs, with initials, special custom bags, etc. As long as the fabric is strong and the price is right I think you could be on to something. Get a bag from a grocery store and take a good look at how it's made (gussett width, strength of fabric, size, etc. )

I would rather have a bag that is more of a fashion statement than one that says Walmart, Safeway or whatever. Think about it. These grocery bags are becoming very popular which is why I asked the question in the first place.
This is how fortunes are made.

I use a basket and cotton shopping bags to carry my shopping in.

I pay anywhere from 99 cents to 1.09. These bags hold a lot more groceries than you think so may will only need a couple. I find that they hold almost as much as 3 plastic bags. I've had them for several months and they still look like brand new.

I think I just might try making some for myself and see how they work, then maybe I really will sell them. How much would a person be willing to pay for a "designer" one, I wonder? I'm guessing durable, stylish fabric will be a little pricey. I'll have to take a trip to the craft store next week and check.

Martha Stewart did a thing one time with old t-shirts where she sewed the bottom, just off the neck and sleeves and, BOOM, shopping bag.
