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.

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)
