If you are a crazy eco maniac, I mean no offense. :) If you have some tips for me & my readers, please let me know- I would love to share them!

I have been using reusable bags for a while. When I first started using them I would forget to put them back in the car after I unloaded them in the house so I got some extras & now there's normally a group in my car & in my house at all times. I also try to keep one of the really compact bags with my coupons as a backup.
Did you know that if you take your own reusable bags to Target, you will get a .05 credit for each bag you use?
CVS offers a bag tag. Buy your tag for $1 & have the cashier scan it each time you shop. Once it's scanned 4 times, you'll get $1 ECB. This is a rolling offer. (Since I have so many bags, it's easier for me to keep my bag tag on my keyring with my CVS card.)
Bi-Lo gives you .05 per bag
Fred Meyers gives you .05 per bag
Shoprite gives you .05 per bag
Whole Foods gives you .10 credit per bag
Winco gives you .05 per bag
I'm sure other stores will follow sooner than later.
Do you know of any other stores that offer incentive to use your own bags? Please share!
