I sewed up a bunch of grocery bags out of remnants or fabric I got at Goodwill. I originally did this because a bag holding cans of soup broke, and not only did I end up with bruises on my foot I had to get down on hands and knees and fish the cans from under other vehicles. So, since this was the second time it had happened, I felt that it was time to put my sewing skills to use and sewed up a bunch of bags.
a community group does something similar, they make bags out of donated fabric and distribute them to points in the community (supermarket, greengrocer and library to name a few places) https://boomerangbags.org/

Sarcasm dear, sarcasm. I’m well aware that dealing with civilians in any capacity will skin your faith in humanity alive, then pickle anything that remains so as to watch it shrivel up into an immortal husk thus reminding you of how dead inside you now are.

I never even told mom if that's what I wanted, I just grabbed one because I knew the debate that would ensue.

Years ago, even before shops charged for carrier bags, my Father would go shopping with a load of plastic bags stuffed into another bag - and to my embarrassment he would pull out the plastic bags that once held 9 toilet rolls... he didn't see a problem with it! In his eyes it was just another plastic bag with handles that would hold groceries!

I'm so frustrated that I can't find 3 of my bags. Two were made by my mom so though they aren't the best for holding groceries, they have a bit of sentimental value. The third is one that I really just like. It's from Bath & Body Works and they don't sell them anymore. It's a gorgous teal and green design. They are not in the car, not in any of my purses, not in storage, not in my grocery cart, not behind the storage cart in the hall closet... I honestly think I accidentally left them in my old car and they went to Car Heaven with it. ugh
