Here is what I do.

Wait for it.



I bring my own bags which are better.

A plastic toe could have saved her life.

I'm ancient enough to remember when groceries were packed in paper bags. As a kid we always had a kitchen drawer full of them which we re-used for various errands and school art projects. Why don't they bring them back?
Aldi have the right idea.They don't even use disposable plastic bags.You either buy one of their re-usable bags for 20c,their sturdier material ones for $1 or you go without & they pack the food loose in your shopping trolley.Cuts down on so much waste.
We still have brown paper bags on the East Coast of the US.

The 24 oz. Soy Sauce is in a glass bottle.

Re: Widower Sues Wal-Mart, Says Bag Caused Death

If the cashier should have been able to tell the bag was too heavy then the customer should have also. If you accidentally cut yourself with a knife you buy at Walmart, are they responsible for that too?

Also, it's not Walmart's fault the woman got an infection. Walmart is evil but I don't see this as being their fault.

I think part of the reason their bags are so flimsy is because they have been recycled too many times.

Theyre too shallow for the width. I used reusable just because half the damn things are ripped.

Most have at least one small hole in them at the seams on the bottom.

I guess so the contents can breathe

It doesn't take much to rip them.

I don't think you can blame Walmart for the infection... Maybe she didn't bother cleaning it properly ???
