Listening to the radio this morning, there's a lot of talk about the 5p (or there abouts) price on plastic bags in the supermarket, specifically M&S who have just started this. Now I've been complaining about the price of just about everything lately and a price being attached to something that used to be free should probably get my blood boiling... but I really don't seem to mind.
I generally always bring along a couple of re-useable bags when I go shopping, folded up (the ones that have a button) and in my bag.
I often shop at Lidl where they've always charged 3p for bags, which gives me more of an incentive to bring some re-useable ones with me. Hell, I've even resorted to picking up an empty box and using that to carry my goods back to the car!
I understand it's going to be inconvenient for some, but I can't see it really affecting me much. If I'm gonna be charged for bags then I'm more likely to try and remember to bring my own next time I go shopping at Tesco/Asda/Sainsburys.
What's your take on this?
