    039About a week ago, I ran a pilot by sneaking a single reuseable grocery bag into our regular purchases at Trader Joes.

    I had seen reusable bags available for a while at Trader Joe’s and had been hesitant and skeptical whether I had the coordination in my life to remember to bring them when I go to Trader Joe’s.

    Well, the pilot was successful. For only 99 cents a bag, switching over from disposible plastic and paper bags to reuseable bags was completely painless. We just toss the reuseable bags into the trunk after we’ve unloaded the groceries, ready for the next trip to Trader Joe’s.
