To Market, To Market

I’m not sure about the rest of the country, but a couple years ago, DC started adding a “bag tax” for using grocery bags + Montgomery County, MD quickly followed suite, even in retail stores. It’s not much- 5 cents a bag- but those 5 cents add up and a lot of places actually offer rebate if you bring your own bag. I think it’s kind of great, to be honest. Not only does it encourage shoppers to be more considerate to the environment, but it’s an excuse for MOAR BAGS. If I’m running to the grocery store after work, I rarely have my bags with me, but on weekends, I always have a big tote for my shopping. This comes especially in handy for excursions like Eastern Market. Come to think of it, I should probably get there pronto to stock up on pearl earrings, fresh veggies, and cheese from family owned farms. Maybe a loaf of fresh baked bread. Annnnd now I’m hungry. How do you shop on weekends? And where is your favorite place to purchase?
