Grow Your Small Change At The Supermarket

At most supermarkets, using reusable bags can earn you 5 cents per bag. With 4 bags, that's a 20 cent savings each time you shop. If you shop once a week and use 4 bags, that works out to about $12 per year. That equals several midweek lunches, new shampoo and conditioner, or a new shirt for your little girl. Return bottles and cans for an additional savings and the same "small change math" applies.

It's good to point this out. Some people ignore these small savings, and one should not.

Yeppers, every penny helps, especially in today's shaky economy! Reusable bags are also more environmentally friendly. Just remember to remove the cardboard bottoms and wash them once in awhile.
