Close, but no cigar

Dear Wal-mart,

Despite some less than stellar past experiences, I am a faithful Wal-mart shopper. There is just something so convenient about being able to complete your grocery shopping while getting your oil changed and then picking up a few plants for the garden on your way out the door.

However, the new thinner plastic bags you are using to bag groceries have got to go. While I appreciate your company's commitment to sustainability, I think you've made a mistake on this one. In theory using less plastic is a good idea. Unfortunately, the bags are so thin, everything has to be double-bagged, which kind of defeats the purpose, don't you think?

Nice try, Wally World. Better luck next time. Bring back the good bags, please.

Sincerely,
Sara

They're trying to get you to buy those reusable bags for a buck!

I'd rather they all do away with bags. Either bring your own or pony up a dime a la Aldi.

I know! I hate it when I forget my reusable bags and then get a million super thin plastic bags, all doubled! Totally defeats the purpose!
