    My wife is responsible for opening the front door so that I can get to the kitchen without interruption

    Is that what wives are for? I gotta get me one.

    The beauty of having children is making them carry the groceries. They're 5 and 7, so we're working on them carrying 2 bags each.

    10/10 for also carrying a human being and an unweildly diaper bag. That one is the hardest - I'd do the single grocery run, then come back for the kid. Especially when there was two.

    But did you carry all that uphill, in a blizzard?

    Pff, my older sister gets so mad at us whenever we ask her kids to bring down some of the bags. It's part of the reason I don't offer to watch them more.

    I'll take em all down at once, but it's never a whole lot. I only shop for myself and stick everything except for raw meat and ice cream into reusuable totes, like these:

    It's less of a mess than plastic bags.

    All of them, especially in the summer when it's hot enough to make the devil sigh.

    It depends. If I remember my reusable bags, I can usually carry all of them at once. If I have to use Whole Foods' crappy paper bags I can only take one or two at a time because if I lift them by their handles, they will tear straight off leaving me cleaning broken (overpriced, organic) eggs off my driveway (can you tell this has happened to me?). When I go to Publix I get a ton of plastic bags. I swear they like to put each individual item in its own sack. At least I use them to line wastebaskets. I do tend to stock up on a lot of groceries at once, since it's a schlep from my house to the supermarket, and I have there growing boys. I would need to sprout another arm to get all the plastic bags from the car to the house at once.

    I'm reading a lot about bringing your own bag. Do all of the groceries fit into one big bag, or do you just not purchase that many groceries?

    @_incogNEATo_ most reusable bags are comparable to the size of a paper bag so you can expect to fit as many groceries in one of those that you would a paper bag or large plastic bag. People that usually purchase these buy more than one bag.

    I work in a grocery store. Some people bring one bag and buy six bags worth of groceries which is just silly. Some people bring a crap ton of the reusable bags and buy a crap ton of groceries. Those are fun orders. When I shop I typically could fill one or two reusable bags. If it's just a couple items I will just throw stuff in my purse and forego the bags altogether. You really can fit a lot in the reusable bags, though. They are very handy and environmentally friendly. :)
