In Praise of Funny Reusable Shopping Bags
Is there a plastic bag ban where you live?
New Jersey’s plastic bag ban kicked in a few weeks ago and it’s broader than most because it includes paper bags and foam polystyrene. There are some exceptions for some stores, but the rules are still fuzzy to me.
All in all, I’m in support of this change. It makes me feel like we’re all working together in this small way to help the planet.
I was already in the habit of bringing my own reusable shopping bags to the grocery store. I do have to remember now to bring a bag when I’m going to a place like Target or Home Depot. I really did like using those Target bags to line my bathroom garbage cans.
All this to say, the topic of reusable shopping bags has been on my mind lately. That means the internet has found out and has been serving me up all sorts of ads for reusable shopping bags.
Did you know there are funny reusable shopping bags? We could all use a little more laughter in our lives, especially while running errands. Here are some bags that made me chuckle.
This funny reusable shopping bag made me laugh and is also one of the reasons why I do not have a Costco membership.

I can relate to this taco tote bag. Ha!

This reusable shopping bag perfectly captures that feeling when we forget the ONE thing we really needed. Happens to all of us.
Happens to me even when I have a list!

This corny one made me chuckle! I enjoy a good pun.

I shouldn’t admit to laughing at this one, but I did.

If you have chickens, this funny reusable shopping bag is a must. Or gift it to someone who raises chickens. They’ll get a kick out of it.

I told my kids about this shopping bag when I was serving them chicken tenders for dinner one night and they didn’t think it was funny. Hahahahaha!
This one was silly and made me laugh. That is all.
Also, I like the pockets in this bag.

I say this in my head (okay, sometimes out loud) every time I remember my reusable shopping bags.

This last one is not a funny reusable shopping bag. It is just practical.
I don’t have these exact ones, but I do have some similar foldable box totes. You can’t fit more than two or three in a shopping cart, but I love that they don’t tip over in the back of your car.

What did you think of these funny reusable shopping bags? Cute? Lame? Something in between?
Bottom line, I love that there are Etsy shops out there putting some humor into the mundane.
Do you have any reusable shopping bags that you love? Or is your collection as ragtag and mismatched as mine is currently? I’d love to hear about it. You can always leave a comment (I have to approve it before it appears.), send an email, or reach out on Instagram or Facebook.
