Target stores, a favorite shopping location for many families, have started giving a $.05 credit for each re-usable shopping bag you use.
Simply take your own shopping bags and you'll automatically receive the credit for each one used at check-out. It's an easy way to save a little money, nice when every little bit counts. It's also a great time to use this as a teaching exercise when shopping with your children. Not only are you saving the environment a little by not taking a plastic bag, but you're saving money and showing how efficiency can pay off.
Happy family shopping!
