    Ladies & gents,

    Here is a link to free patterns to make reusable tote bags. These bags would also make great gifts. Ooh and swap gifts (thinking). I use my resuable bags just about everywhere I go to shop: at the grocery store, fabric shopping, to the market & at craft shows.

    My reusable bags also helps me to control my spending; once my bag is full, I am done shopping. So I can say that my reusable bags help me to save money in more ways than one. Smile.

    Those are great bags. Thanks for posting

    I NEVER thought of bringing reuseable produce bags to the store. Those plastic ones are only used to get things from the store to home anyway...hmmmmm ? will have to look into that one.

    I like this idea-at our store when you take in your own bags you get 5 cents credit. I always keep my bags in the trunk of the car, so they are not forgotten at home when you are out shopping. I put meat in the plastic bags just incase they drip. -- J

    I've made one of the bags from a tutorial in this round up - the singlet style one - I love it! It was an easy to follow tutorial and produced a great bag. Thanks for sharing the link - I'm going to try more of those!
