In the fruits and vegetables section, spin off extra flimsy transparent bags.


Use them as throwaway gloves.


And I keep my pinkies from getting frostbite when I load up on Marie Callanders chicken pot pies.

I've found with arthritic fingers an insulated bag is much easier to handle cold stuff.

If your vehicle has to be parked distant from your rig a children's toy wagon saves the day.

Good idea - thanks. Additionally, I have found that arriving when the store opens means a clean store with fewer people - and occasionally some of the harder to find items are stocked.

That is a good idea
.
I just saw on the news (television) that the virus can live on plastic grocery bags for up to 3 days. They recommended you take your own bags.

I went to the news website (same station) and it said Wise Markets do not allow reusable bags.

Who do we believe?

In this case bring reusable bags that could have contained who knows what, been stored in who knows where is not a good idea. I’d go with the plastic bags.

Now there will be produce bag shortages, bring your own bags/gloves.

Drive in groceries.
Order on line and they put them in your truck.

I agree with taking your own re-useable produce bags. I have been doing this for a long time now in an attempt to cut down on the amount of plastic being used on our planet. In fact, I often use the plastic bags that our newspaper gets delivered in - it sits on our front doorstep, not in a gravel driveway so it is relatively clean. I feel not much harm can be done putting something like apples in it - they are going to be thoroughly washed anyway. Every little bit helps.

I agree, disposable bags are the best choice. I was just pointing out the confusion being broadcast by the news media.

Yeah. Who knows who's touched those bags.

I disagree with using single-use plastic bags that way, especially when you could bring your own real gloves.

That's just my opinion though.

Putting my Moderator hat back on, this really isn't a "RVing with Disabilities and General Health Issues" topic, so I'm moving it.
