Step 1. Realized that I was powerless over my addiction -- that our lives had become unmanageable

Step 2. Came to believe that a power greater tahn ourselves could restore us to sanity. . . .

I too am an obsessive bag collector. I have even been known to ask other people for their bags. I used to decorate my antique store with them. Whenever I sold something, I would let the person pick which bag they wanted from the wall of bags. Now I no longer have an antique store, but I am still obsessed with bags. The lady I work for recently came home with a Manolo Blahnik bag. I was overcome with bag envy!

I save our plastic grocery store bags and get one re-use out of them: doubled up, they make a good container for ferret poop.

That wine bag, though. Way too good for ferret poop.

Do you own a chinchilla?

The wine bags cost more than my Trader Joes three buck Chuck.

Maybe grocery bags can be biodegradable. What's up with cellulose? I reuse them for Garbage.

the bag made of canvas with wooden handles could make a nice purse! i mean, hipster chicks have been using old lunch boxes as purses for years, so maybe you can start a new trend?

This so normal~bag clan member .I can not stand to spend money on wine bags and gift bags .I recyle them & use inventive ways to re-wrap. It makes it fun and somewhat enviro-friendly. Viva'la bag.
As for grocery bags.They are getting phased out here in BC so....I am not sure what to do for garbage.Any ideas?

The black and white striped bag remind me of jail and the large DSW insignia makes me think of the Department of Solid Waste. ;-)

I kinda wish you were my neighbor. I could skip work, and we could drink cocktails on the porch.

It is way to cold in Cleveland for me though.

Eriiiiiiin! It's like my bag of bags and your bag of bags - well, they are soulmates. I too have a bag of those annoying blue plastic ones. I too have a big huge bag of Macy's bags and bags from expensive shops and bags that will be useful when you take things to the charity shop and paper bags you can put your papers in and then just dump the whole thing into the paper-recycling bin...

Agh. I feel we understand each other.

We too have a gift bag full of gift bags, EOB. What I don't get, though, is bringing wine over to a party in a gift bag. The bottle already contains the wine. Why does the container need another container?

Careful Erin, there's a Goat at the door ready to pounce!

Please recycle all your bags.
