Who is buying 10c bags?

Original post made by Shopper, Palo Verde, on Dec 20, 2013

Like many other people, I have been doing more than the regular amount of shopping over the past couple weeks. My purely unscientific study is that most women are taking bags into stores. Some men are taking bags into grocery stores. But the vast amount of 10c paper bags are being bought by teenagers doing their Christmas shopping and also in grocery stores. Men may take bags when buying groceries, but not for gift buying.

I think this 10c charge is being paid mainly by kids who probably can't afford it but have no choice, and men who are not into shopping in general.

Any comments?

Do what I do: If I forget my bag(s), just get some veggie bags out of the produce department . . . Taaa Daah!

How do you know that the kids can't afford the bags? There are some pretty well-heeled young 'uns in the area.

We mostly bring bags, and sometimes we have to buy them.
