    reusable bags.

    I like canvas tote bags, which wash well and easily, and as I shop at Aldi's, they sell a heavyweight plastic bag that can be reused readily, as well as sturdy paper bags.

    The small plastic shopping bags get reused as liners for the bathroom trash cans and for things like putting the comfortable shoes in in the bag for the club, so the dirt on the soles doesn't get on other things.

    With meat and things that leak or sweat....Meat goes in a "disposable" plastic bag in its butcher paper, and then into a canvas bag due to its weight. (I buy a month's meat at a time.) Cool or frozen goods go in the heavy plastic bags, which are washed, dried, and refolded. Dry goes in either a box or in a heavy canvas bag, with care taken to not make it too heavy to pick up.

    I'd probably find it a little annoying to deal with a total bag ban on the small plastic bags, but I could adapt.

    When you come to find how essential the comfort of a well-kept home is to the bodily strength and good conditions, to a sound mind and spirit, and useful days, you will reverence the good housekeeper as I do above artist or poet, beauty or genius.
