Last week’s poll asked whether you were staying at home or going away for vacation this year. The majority of you, even though the economy is still tanked and ‘staycations’ are now becoming more popular, are heading out-of-town. However, the biggest surprise for me were the number of people who consider any time away from home/work a ‘vacation’.
This week’s poll comes after I read this article in the MSP Business Journal about Supervalu’s new rules regarding bagging groceries. Instead of bagging heavy items in plastic, they’re training staff to keep them out of bags and place them in the cart separate in, “an effort to save millions of dollars a year on bag costs.”
The most surprising thing here is the statement that they’re training their staff to do something with bagging of groceries at all. While I know that Supervalu owns more than just Cub, I am still to this day surprised that Cub doesn’t bag your groceries for you. While bagging my own isn’t a huge deal, I hope they realize that I’m in no way going to conserve their bags for them–especially when I’m in need of a restocked dog poop pickup bag stash.
But the real question here is do you use paper or plastic when you shop? Do you use one solely over the other or do you do a mix depending on the items or the need for the bags at home? Whatever you have to say about this one go ahead and comment on and then vote on the sidebar. After you do both of those things feel free to check out our expired polls in the archive or read through the previous posts about polls here.
