Mom Chronicles #44: In 2007, San Francisco banned large grocery stores and supermarkets (Safeway, Walgreens, etc.) from using plastic bags. Then in Oct 2012, all retail stores (Target, Macy’s) began charging 10 cent per paper bag. This was a huge hit to my mom’s lifestyle choice – hoarding bags went from “resourceful” to a necessity of life.
Hoard your plastic bags and put them in re-purposed containers and jars.
