Reduce, Reuse, Recycle with Target

In Sunday’s ad, Target offered a mail-in form for a FREE reusable shopping bag in exchange for five plastic Target bags.

And did you know that when you bring your reusable shopping bags to Target, you can receive five cents off your purchase for each reusable bag?  Talk about saving some green for being green!


But if I mail in my Target bags, what will I use for my trashcan liners?

And my shower caps?

Living life as a mom on the run between races and raising three beautiful, brilliant children (ages 11, 7, 2). Before a blissful life as a SAHM, I taught elementary school for 7 years. In 2007, I discovered a passion for running. I'm currently training for a fourth marathon as well as a variety of other races and triathlons. In my spare time, I am the lead organizer for the Tampa Bay Bloggers on Facebook. I'm currently training for two marathons as well as a variety of other races and triathlons. From start to finish, I'm a mom on the run trying maintain an easy pace through it all.

    Or to wrap up stinky poopy diapers. That’s what we do with them lol. Heck mailing in the bags will cost more than the dollar bag at the dollar store .What are they nuts.

    The shower cap, awesome! If we turned all of ours in, The Dudes would be lost come winter as we’ve been known to use them as shoe covers (in the absence of boots) and mittens (because they usually can only find the cloth ones that are no good in the snow). Yes, we are that family.

    Target makes good bags for reusing. That’s the only bag I’ll put in my car for trash.

    Have a great day!

    You crack me up. I LOVE using my target bags as liners in my bathroom.

    While I think using reusable bags (the fabric ones) is great….I am not sure about using them at the grocery store anymore…they harbor many many germs…ewwww.

    Well…save some, and mail some in? LOL. Target gave these bags out this past Sunday here in my neck of the woods. I really love the design on them this year :)

    And I say it’s not a waste if you’re actually *using* the bags, instead of just tossing them.

    Happy WW!

  • Tracy AKA The Mayor! says:

    Too funny! Oh SO TRUE! Despite the going green aspect, which I’m totally on board with, every garbage can in my house has a plastic shopping bag in it!! AND I’ve used them as shower caps many times LOL! Whatever shall we do once they are gone forever??! Teehee! :-D

    Shower caps are super sexy!
    I give my daughter target bags with string. They make perfect kites for toddlers!

  • Gayle in Alaska says:

    They definitely are handy for trash can liners. Also, lunch bags for too cool teenagers. I do like the bag Target is offering though. Too bad there isn’t a target near me.

  • Krystyn says:

    We use reusable bags, too and love the savings.

    But, I’ve noticed I don’t have any trashbags or lunch bags anymore. What’s a girl to do?

    21 April, 2010 at 12:52 pm
  • Chrissy says:

    They were giving out those bags free in the stores too. Mike got one.

    I love reusable bags. They’re so easy to take along and the ones I have can really take a beating.

    P.S. I love the shower cap. :)

  • Katie @ Why Bother? says:

    Yeah, I saw that at the bottom of my receipt the last time I went shopping there. Going to start keeping my plastic bags in the trunk!

  • angie says:

    Hey, that’s cool, although it’s too bad they won’t just give shoppers a free bag to reuse each time they shop in person rather than mailing in for it!

    Very cool, and I love the shower cap! Happy WW!
