Aldi bags cost 10 cents per bag here but they do have bags.

If they have the Aldi's logo, then they would be status symbols, compared to the cheaper places with free bags. I can't afford a dime everytime I need a bag.

That is pretty ridiculous. But then again, I do sometimes hide my Alko bag (State booze shop) inside another shopping bag so I don't look like a drunk...

Exactly. I can't say that I have ever watched closely enough to tell what another person is doing with grocery bags in the back of a car.

Makes no difference to me.

For most people those reusable bags are absolutely filthy inside. If you aren't washing them frequently you are putting your groceries in filth, which is why I don't use them. The ones you can buy don't hold up to frequent washings.

A friend of the family even saw Robbie Coltrane do this at the Lidls carpark.. Theres no shame in having to shop at a cheaper shop but why bother to go to all this bother for the neighbours..

Um, you have to bring your own bags to Aldi's. We don't have Lidl's in my part of the U.S. but it is possible they have the same policy.

And maybe Mr. Coltrane only meant to pick up a few items and went in without a bag, then saw a great sale and bought more than he had intended. That would explain someone putting groceries into other bags in the parking lot.

As a cashier I have to agree with you. I'm afraid to actually touch some of those reusable bags! I have to say, though, that the majority of people DO keep them clean whether cloth or plastic. I LOVE the Trader Joe bags. They are stiff plastic and so much easier to handle and bag stuff in. I wouldn't think you'd have to wash the bags all that often, like maybe once a month. I think some I see are just really OLD and need to be replaced.

I've actually had people tell me to just bag their stuff 'any old way' because they are going to transfer it all to different bags...or ice chests...at their car. Why don't they just bring in the bags to begin with?? I sometimes wonder about these people who "see" so much going on in the parking lot. I don't even notice and all I want is to get to my OWN car and get gone! lol
