I have a couple of these exact bags from Whole Foods. We don't even have a Whole Foods in our area. So the answer - do you carry bags from different stores? You betcha!

I'm also guilty of forgetting the reusable bags at home or even in the trunk of the car. So for those of you that do that, you are not alone. I actually tend to use my reusable bags more for things such as toting things to & from places i.e., the winery or friend's house for a BBQ and less likely to carry groceries in them!!

I also adore the lululemon bags -- they are perrrrfect for toting stuff all around. Returns into the mall, random stuff for roadtrips, even carrying stuff to the gym & they last FOREVER.

    You have NO idea how hard I am laughing right now and how much I wish I could attach a picture to this comment… I just ran errands with my pup in the car and it was just a tad too hot to leave her in there while I ran into Whole Foods, so I stuck her in that larger sized Lululemon bag and smuggled her in with me. Hahah, so there’s my answer- yes, I use bags from different stores for things OTHER than just food! :)

    Oh, and after we checked out, I stuck my baguette right in the bag with Miss Pepper.

    I am SO guilty of leaving my bags at home, where I’ve inevitably carted in something from the car and then forgotten them. Love seeing some new options, though!

    i have some great bags that i got at the container store…they fold up into little pouches – they are fantastic and don’t take up too much room in my purse so i can keep them with me all the time! they also have little clips to you could put one on a keychain (for the non-purse carriers :)

    I love the Whole Foods bags. It took me months to get trained. I always walk the bags back to my trunk right after I put the groceries away and then when I get in the car to drive to the grocery store I put them in the front seat next to me.

    I love using my bags. I have these: http://www.reusablebags.com/store/chicobag-colorful-compact-reusable-shopping-p-450.html and they fold up so small, so I toss 2 in my purse, and keep the rest close by. That way, I have them if I need them :)
