When Shopping Together, Tie Purchases To Tell Them Apart

When my daughter and I go shopping or to garage sales, I tie the tops of my bags in a knot. That way when she brings me home, it is very easy to recognize my purchases. Bread bag twisties work great too.

When Shopping Together, Tie Purchases To Tell Them Apart

Hello, Anna. That is a great idea! I often go with friends and family shopping, and usually end up looking inside each bag, trying to recall what I even purchased! So, thanks for the tip! By the way... I've never seen anyone online from Urbana! I grew up in the area (Woodstock, technically). I went to and graduated from Triad (as did my dad), and my grandparents (and other family members, and friends) are long-time Urbanians. Go Sparky (mom and other family/friends graduated from UHS, mom was even a cheerleader there)! Nice to see someone from "back home!" (10/22/2007)

That is an excellent idea! I will try it out next time my sister and I go shopping together - which happens often! Thanks for sharing and God bless you. (10/22/2007)

It also works to put your bags behind the seat you are sitting in, on the floor. (08/25/2008)
