Reusable Shopping Bag Explosion

Do you have as many cloth shopping bags as I do?  
And how do you keep them organized?  Once folded.....
I counted 18!  And with the ones I have in the car, my purse, and office I probably have 25 of them.  It seems that nowadays they have almost replaced plastic bags.  In the last year I've probably been given half of these at stores and at conferences.  I assume I am not alone in this.  Since the point is for them to be durable enough to reuse over and over again in place of disposable bags I don't need anymore!  I wish that businesses and organizations would realize this.  Stop the insanity!

It's not just you... I thought I was overloaded with reusable bags... but I don't think I have THAT many.

Yes I am with you. I keep one bag I put them all in one bag and I have to say I am never organized enough to use them all the time.

Eighteen doesn't sound excessive to me AT ALL. One good grocery shopping trip to town, I'd use all 18, easy.

We have a lot of Budweiser ones that my husband snagged when his company went out of business (Bud was a former client), plus a few miscellaneous ones. And then I just made 9 more out of upholstery samples/swatches. I probably have enough now, but not too many.

My sister and I have made a few fabric shopping bags and we love them.

We have them everywhere also.

I don't have that many bags. Most of my reusable bags are bought by me from the stores. I can say that I just have enough. I have 6 of them
