Use Reusable Grocery Bag as a Gift Bag

Sustainable, reusable shopping bags, that all stores now offer with their logo, make great and very reasonable gift bags. The grocery bag costs $2.00 or less, decorator gift bags can cost as much as $7.00 to $10.00. The best part is the grocery bag can be reused many more time than paper. The proposed tax on traditional paper or plastic grocery bags makes this gift idea even more economical.

Use Reusable Grocery Bag as a Gift Bag

I have done this several times. First time was when I bought a baby gift at BabysRUs and saw their reuseable bag. Bought the bag and put the gift in it and gave it to the new mother at the shower. I told my daughter and she's done it also since then. Great at a wedding shower too.

Target's bags are really pretty. Makes a lot of sense and saves money to boot. (06/20/2010)

I have done this for years, first with the paper and now with the plastic. If I don't care for the logo, I make something fitting and glue it on. Looks better than bought! (06/20/2010)

Use Reusable Grocery Bag as a Gift Bag

Great Idea! I've been making my own reuseable grocery bags from crocheting, making some out of Tshirts and other things which would normally be given away or tossed. Your idea has given me a way to share what I am making. Two gifts for one! (06/20/2010)

This is a great idea. I am a reuser at heart; can't believe I never thought of this. Especially good if you are bringing groceries to someone's home to cook or bake something for them. (06/20/2010)

Use Reusable Grocery Bag as a Gift Bag

Such a good idea. I will definitely use this tip! Actually, I quit buying the gift bags last year. I started buying the clearance tote bags and started putting the gifts in those. They can be reused and are great for picnics, overnight bags, book bags or whatever and cost the same as a gift bag. I hated paying $5-10 for gift bags, using them once and having them thrown away. This store bags are an even better idea. (06/20/2010)
