Cheapest "supermarket bag" alternative?

The traditional supermarket bags is the ideal size for our daily kitchen waste. Having tried several alternatives in similar size I've found them much weaker in comparison, especially the clear ones, and much more expensive than 5p for the black thick ones which I don't need.

You've found bags weaker than the 'used to be free' **** you got at asda and tesco? That's shocking considering they where literally as thing as feasible.

Anyway if you're obsessed with having carrier bags for your little ban try a Market/Carboot. Usually a guy on every market who sells packs of carrier bags. They work out about 2p a bag usually so a fair bit cheaper for you.

I have found rolls at home bargains, plain white carrier bags with red label, 50 for less than a quid, ideal replacement.

I use normal blag bin bags from Aldi ato 45 for 99p or there's some at asda bin liners 15 litres are good price but to small they kept popping off the bin so use the I think 30 or 40 litre pack of 80 for 1.30

I've read this about four times and it still doesn't make any sense.

Cotton, cost about £1.50-£2.50 each and last basically forever; I have totted mine around SE Asia, and other than a suspicious irremovable blood stain* on the bottom of one, they are still going strong 8 years later.

*Might be Labrador, they were unloading them at the meat market in Nanning, Christmas Day 2010.

The Sainsburys bags are made from a much thicker material. I don't even think they qualify as single use carrier bags under the legislation

They don't, they do not have to charge for them and the money does not have to be given to charity.
Shortly after the rule came in it was in the news about them profiteering from the bag charge. They have e however announced that they do give profits from bag charges to charity still.

​I think the op wants use them as bin bags so but pointless buying them all the liquids will drain out

200 for less than a fiver on ebay. You can buy a 1000+ if needed. We use the the green biodegradable bags you can get anywhere

No business is required to hand over any of the money from bag sales to charity.

Fairly sure you're wrong, the idea is to not profit. It's up to the retailer in which good cause to give profit to tho.

Edit, seems not officially required but advised to. Still every large business does.
And they are required to report where the profits go etc.

I wouldn't try correcting other people's misspelling if I were you. It's "they WERE", not "they where". Please learn the difference.

uh-oh ..grandma police are owt. I'm going to sit in the corner and where a dunces cap.

(Incidentally I wasn't trying to actually correct anything, I was merely trying to clarify things fit the person who seemed confused by it. Oh, that was...errr...you. )
