    Ciel has a wonderful sense of humour. LOL. I just saw this now -- thanks for the chuckle.

    I'm often seen with a backpack...but, I'm getting weaker in my old age. I may have to bring along a wheeled cart on my treks. The backpack's handy because it's usually for, "oh, wow, what a deal! I have to buy it," trips where I'm out for exercise more than anything else. But...when there's a great deal, it can be hard to carry things home. But...I hate pulling a cart along if I don't use it, which would happen, too. Hmmm...I need to find a donkey...

    Thanks for the heads up on the $0.05 bags coming to xxxx store near you.

    Want to buy me a coffee? You can! But, you don't have to! In fact, I encourage you not to. ('Cuz postage is ridiculous). But, if you insist on it...well, you can drop a buck, or two, here: paypal.me/cyn88canada I emphasize, you do NOT have to -- a coffee icon tossed my way is gold. + =

    I was on Twitter checking some accounts and noticed that McMaster University Campus stores won't be giving out bags in September. Students and other customers will have to BYOB-bring your own bags. Might be tricky for computer peripherals but that is what fold-up totes are good for!

    Might be a good idea to ensure any family or friends going back to campus has about three different size totes plus a sturdy one with fold-down cardboard bottom for that detergent jug deal or heavy book buy (or maybe it's time for a shopping cart!).

    Kitchen Stuff Plus has a foldup tote with two wheels that might be closer to what you currently tote. But there's no solid handle, just two braided fabric straps.https://www.kitchenstuffplus.com/ksp...g-trolley-blue

    I saw someone with this brand of shopping cart at a bus stop-pretty swish! https://www.rolser.com/en/4-shopping-trolleys
    I did not know that DeSerres art stores sold that brand of trolleys! https://www.deserres.ca/en/home/shopping-trolleys

    I didn't realize the carts can be so expensive!

    Beer Stores in Ontario have a counter card indicating that (5cent) plastic bags will no longer be available as of January 2020. Remember to carry sturdy totes for purchases-the flimsy nylon bags won't do. I bought some bags today as they are shorter than the grocery store bags but perfect for can collecting (they don't drag down to the ground).

    Global News on Friday Jan. 31 stated that Sobey's will be selling paper bags for 10cents a piece as the single use plastic bags are discontinued. Bring your own recyclable totes too! Store sells some kinds of totes but the heavy stuff needs those cardboard reinforced black rectangular totes (I was told they sell for $5.99 each).

    Current Farm Boy flyer shows the different bags that the stores sell. I saw the 99 cent tote-is that the same kind of black fabric that is used for the PC totes? If so, I know where to get more totes!

    My PC tote can get 6mo to one year's of use depending on how often I lug pop cases or just heavy goods.
