…don’t put it in a bag! There is some disease out here in Colorado that has infected just about every grocery checker I’ve encountered. I call it: overuseofbagsitis. Let me help you out here, Coloradoans and anyone else who suffers from this illness. A gallon of milk has a handle for two purposes: 1. Aids pouring, 2. Allows carrying. I don’t need a flimsier bag with handles when my milk already comes with an easy-to-use, more sturdy handle. This same rule applies to laundry detergent. A half gallon of milk is a gray area in my view: although the handle is sturdier, it’s rather small, and the half-gal can fit into a bag with other things.
Let’s save ourselves some effort and bags here, everybody, and sack only those things that require it.
