- a 5 lb. bag of potatoes
- a 5 lb. bag of sugar
- 2 5 lb. bags of flour
giantcan of stewed tomatoes
gianttub of sour cream
gianttub of cottage cheese
- plus some other random stuff like a bunch of bananas
So I weighed the bag when I got home: 33 pounds! That's heavier than my youngest child!
While I'm on the subject, I should also mention that while I'm all for helping the environment, the two biggest factors in me using reusable grocery bags are:
- not having the under the sink cupboard overflowing with plastic bags from grocery stores
- not having stores (especially Walmart!) pack approximately one item into each plastic bag so I bring home 20 items and 15 plastic bags. It's like the store didn't train them, so they figure one item per bag is pretty safe.
