On November 1, Target joined Whole Foods and CVS in giving shoppers cash back for each reusable shopping bag they use. Although the discount only adds up to between 5 and 10 cents per bag depending at which of these stores consumers are shop, the incentive is one more great reason to bring a reusable bag when you shop. Unfortunately remembering those green bags when you head to the store is harder than you think. We asked the iVillage and GardenWeb community how they make sure to bring their green bags to the grocery and the secret seems to be keeping those bags out in places where you can't miss them on your way out the door.
"My laundry room is connected to the garage where I park my car. For me it's the most logical place to store [my bags] in the house. I've had them in the kitchen pantry and in the hall closet nearest the kitchen, but I could never remember them on my way out the door. Out of sight out of mind." —kathec
