I really like using my own bags at the grocery store. I hate having all the plastic bags around the house that I have to take back to the store at a later date. I forget and then they pile up and are terribly messy. I have made grocery bags in the past and I seem to give them away to family and friends. This year I am making a much better effort to make and keep some for myself. These are the first two of many. All from my stash!!
