25. I used baskets back in Boston
until I found a street vendor selling heavy Naugahyde shopping bags. I still use them, but after 20 years, the handles are getting iffy and will soon need repair. I have canvas bags I've gotten from wool and other fibre growers and I'm not a bit embarrassed to advertise their ranches. I always keep a string bag or two in my purse. Since I don't smoke, wear makeup or have a cell phone, I have plenty of room.

I'm seeing more rebels, too, and the grocery gives everybody a nickel for every bag they bring and fill.
