Options are Limited With 5-Cent Fee for Grocery Bags

When you shop, do you prefer paper or plastic? Buy or bring? Either way, you’re paying for the bag. Does that make sense? Of course it does.

According to NJ.com,

Grocery stores are stuck in the middle.

They typically pay $1,000 to $6,000 per month on bags alone. They do this because they think I will stop shopping there if I don’t get “free” bags, thus feeling compelled to keep on buying and distributing the bags and hiding the costs. The money the grocery stores spend goes to the plastic bag manufacturers, who make tens of millions of dollars on plastic bags alone.

If you had the option of simply paying for the bag or bringing your own and not having to pay that cost, you could actually save money. You know how you feel about saving money! You would also be helping the environment. How many of those bags do you already have in your home right now?
