She writes: ‘My simple, cheap and (hopefully) effective hack to make sure we have a shopping bag with us at all times. $0.50 pencil cases from Kmart!
Jaime adds: ‘There’s 4-6 reusable plastic bags (the 15c ones form Coles/Aldi) in each. Not enough for a big shop which I normally remember to take my big canvas bags for. This is for when I decide to just pop in to the shops and often get caught out! 😉’
Don’t we all! Adding that you can fit four to six pages inside if you fold them tightly - Marie Kondo would be proud - Jaime’s hack got a big thumbs up from the other Kmart Mums Australia members.
‘This is SUCH a good idea!’ wrote one. Added another: ‘That’s such a good idea! We are forever forgetting bags then buying them.’
Said a third: ‘What a good idea! I don't know how many times I've gone to pick the kids up and go into the shop without a bag. Off to buy a pencil case ... thank you for sharing.’
Added another: ‘Fabulous idea mumma! You really are going all Marie Kondo out aren't you!’
