Thanks guys! She needs washing as she hangs out in the laundry room. It's a half doll body made of stuffed muslin. She has yarn hair, and a dress with a slit in the back to stuff the bags in, and a drawstring at the bottom to pull them out. She's pretty handy. Or baggy.

She's really cute, Dawg!

I have Trader Joe bags that I try to remember to take into the grocery store with me. Three of them are flat bags and one is an insulated square sided one that holds quite a lot.

I WANT a bag lady! I WANT a bag lady! And I want her now! Ouch!! I hurt my foot stamping it.

Where did you get her? And what is her name? This is one of those days when I regret giving my sewing machine away.

Well there is no grass growing under my feet. I went to etsy and found an adorable doll bag holder. She will be in my kitchen very shortly. Thank you for the idea.

Cheryl, check out the clip on bags. They weigh absolutely nothing, stuff into 3x4 inches, and hold a lot!

Shoot, Addie, I would have made you a bag lady!

Love her! Maybe I can sew up a favorite scrub shirt that's wearing out to make a bag holder.

Thanks! Why not? It already would have the right openings! You could even have the bags coming out a sleeve!

I sewed a loop in the back for hanging.

It has taken a while to remember to bring the reusable bags into the car when I go shopping, but I'm pretty good at it now.

My vent? "Uptalk" If you are making a declarative statement, say it like you believe it.

Yes, my internal editor DID want to remove the space between the "S" and the rest of the word "Sometimes.

Right now I have a very large heavy plastic bag hanging on a nail in the kitchen and all the smaller grocery bags go into it as Spike puts the groceries away for me. It is ugly. In spite of the fact that I use them to line my trash cans throughout the house, I often run out of them and have to get some from Spike or my daughter. I wish there were a more environmental safer means of lining my trash cans. I certainly do not like the idea of all of these bags going to into landfill. When I look back, my mother had a metal trash can in the kitchen, and my father always would take it out and empty it, then put it in the hall downstairs. I would go and bring it up. Then she would wash it out and let it dry.

Without the grocery bag liners, I would have five waste baskets to empty down the hall and then wash each day. Considering I dump my coffee grounds into them, and the baskets are plastic, they would easily become stained and hold odors. So the grocery bag liners unfortunately have to be my answer to my problem.
