How do I remember to take my bags with me?

Creating this new habit may take a little time and practice. Some simple suggestions to help you remember to bring your bags are:

  • Keep reusable bags in your car and/or purse;
  • After unpacking your purchases immediately return your bags to your car, or leave them where you will see them the next time you go to your car;
  • Place your car keys in one of your bags;
  • Write a reminder at the top of your shopping list;
  • Go back to your car once you realize you’ve left your bags there;
  • Ask your retailer to post signs in the parking lot and near the store entrance.
