    I bought some at Dollar General, 15 bags for $5. Our WalMart

    Supercenter has one area with restricted access to tobacco, and along

    the outside of that they have the "as seen on tv" products. I've

    seen a lot of items there that I have wondered about, and have on

    occasion bought some.

    My local WalMart has them available for purchase right at the check out lanes that are manned with cashiers.

    I just seen in yesterdays Big Lots paper they have them. 16 count for only $4. I've also seen them at end of checkouts at Walmart. You can find alot of things there that when advertised says ONLY BUY ON TV!! Do these bags really work. For the price of $4, I am thinking of trying them.


    Laters,

    I am not sure about Walmart having them. I do know that Bed Bath &

    Beyond has them here in IN for about $10.



    Have a great day!

    What do you mean by green bags? Do you mean the "cloth" bags instead of paper and plastic ones?! If so, they're at our Super Wal-Mart right as you walk in the door. I have bought 5 of them and they're awesome (only a dollar). But, for some reason, this one cashier didn't want to bag my stuff in them. I was holding it open on the turn-style bagging thing so she could just put them in and she said that she was just going to hand my items to me. Ha, I just held the bag open for her. How is that different than using the plastic bags? She boggled me!

    Oh, some of them have the hook on them so they'll stay open on the turn-style bagging thing. Only two of mine have the hook so keep an eye out.

    At Walmart in Kokomo, IN they are on a huge display with many other

    items that are also advertised on TV. Most of the things on the

    display are TV items advertised by that man, I can't remember his

    name!!! It seems like both first and last name begin with a B. Like

    Billy, I don't know. Anyway they are all together. Ped Eggs, the

    extended reaching device that reaches about 3 feet and other stuff

    like that. Good luck finding them. I don't know anyone that has ever

    used them. Do they work as good as they are advertised?

    These REALLY work!! I make sure my produce is DRY or I wrap it in a few paper towels and they make my poroduce last 3-4 times as long. I have green peppers in my fridge that I bought 4 weeks ago and I checked and they are great.

    The Green Bags, I believe are the plastic bags that keep produce fresh for a long period of time.


    I ordered these online about 3 months ago. I will never store my fruit, veggies or meat any other way. I haven't thrown one bit of food out since I started using them. Totally worth every cent.

    They are also sold on HSN. Reviews were very good for the vegetable and fruit

    bags. Not so good for the Gold bags for bread, rolls and snack items. They are

    made in the USA.

    I had a cashier at WalMArt try that with me. I have always used

    cloth tote bags for groceries as to try and do my part to save the

    erath. The cashier said she would hand my items to me. I asked if

    I would get a discount for bagging things myself? I then made her

    bag them for me...IN my bags.



    Next time they do this, have a manager come over and in front of the

    cashier, ask the manager "Why do you sell these bags if your

    cashiers won't use them?"



    As for the Green bags (for produce), I bought 20 for $10.00 at

    Walgreens. It was my rebate money so basically they were free.

    I work at Walmart part-time, we bag all the items whether in plastic

    or the customer own cloth bags, I have had a few customers help me.

    The cashier must have been having some kind of bad day for or not very

    experience in being people friendly, for her to do this, and you are

    right, when this happens you ask for a manager. Our job as cashiers

    is to make sure the customer have a great shopping experience.



    Walmart was giving away green cloth bags, when the green day started,

    but they sell the black cloth bags where I work at, and they are

    wonderful, for only $1.00.

    Not that I am pushing one company over the other but I think the Walmart Bags

    are trash. We actually gave ours away. They are light weight and fall over

    just like the plastic counterparts.



    The ones I find to be the best are the ones that Meijer sells. The cost is 99

    cents and the are so good we use them for day trips, grocery trips and traveling

    (we always take our own food rather than restaurants).



    Totes from other stores are just that totes. They are okay for carrying books

    to the library, etc. but groceries, no.

    I usually don't bother with reusable shopping bags at WalMart. I do

    need a certain amount of plastic bags of that type, if nothing else I

    use them to bring home my dirty undies from work. I work in a

    graphite factory and I do get dirty. We have showers so we can clean

    up after work, and our uniforms go to a laundry service. Anyway, I

    do need some bags coming in.



    The cloth bags, I use them when I go to yard sales, the mall (big bag

    to put smaller bags in), the used book store, the farmers market. I

    take a plastic basket with me when I go to the Mennonite produce stand, too.



    We used to have a store called Save A Lot. I bought a number of

    tote bags for a quarter at the local resale shop so I'd have them for

    shopping at Save A Lot. They charge extra for bags for there, but

    people could reuse their bags or use boxes the store placed in

    front. It was package/bag your own after check-out.
