Tote-ally Tuesday: Week 2

Week 2 of my personal challenge to ban the plastic bag and utilize a reusable tote.

Let me begin with this clip from the IFC show Portlandia. This skit is how I imagine our world would be if everyone brought their own bags to stores. (I watched season 2 this weekend. Season 1 is on Netflix. I hope you find it as hilarious as I do.)

As a self-confessed chronic store browser, this week I stopped at Walls Bargain Center in Grenada, Miss. to peruse any bargains.

I found a couple of Buff Headwear headband things that you see on Survivor that I couldn’t resist (75 percent off). When I’m having an epic bad hair day, a Buff can instantly make me look kinda cool (or that’s what I tell myself). So I checked out, got to the car and realize my bargains were in one of those stinking plastic bags!

Scrunched Tote in Purse

My solution is to carry a tote in my purse so it’s always with me. “Like when I wake up in the morning, I don’t forget to open my eyes. Or my heart doesn’t forget to beat.”…(reference to video clip above).

Missing the last two Tote-ally Tuesday Posts? Initial Post is here and Week 1 is here.

Overall the challenge is going well. Even Mr. Delta Moxie is carrying a reusable bag.

Do you have any suggestions?

    Kellee, I have two reusable bags that fold up about 4″ x 6″ and snap or velcro shut, that I got at trade shows… see if you can find any like that, they’ll fit in your purse!
