A shopping solution

-A A +A

The purpose of this letter is to provide a suggestion in response to the recent article concerning the unsanitary condition of many tote bags. For standard size cloth reusable bags, keep a paper grocery bag in each one. It will be obvious when the occasional leakage requires that the paper bag be replaced.
The combination cloth/paper bag will fold normally and has the added advantage of remaining upright and open for easy loading and unloading of groceries. And, speaking of shopping, there is a safe alternative to hauling around a heavy purse over your shoulder. Place the purse beneath the child seat in the shopping cart and secure by clicking the child safety strap around the handle of the purse. Happy shopping!
