Default How does one shop with a tote bag?

I don't care about the eco crap. I know it's a stupid question.

Sometimes I shop at a store like Target or Walmart and they never have any baskets. I go there to buy some essentials, so maybe 4-8 items at most.

I don't want to use a wagon when I can fit everything on the top part of the wagon. It gets too crowded in the stores a lot of the time and it's just a pain in the ass weaving around people or having to leave the wagon one place and walk down the aisle. Plus I like to shop in mid-day (still crowded, I know...) and there's so many slow, fragile, and rude old bags or stay-at-home mothers with their bratty children/babies.

I also don't like to carry the items around like some hobo dumpster diving. Mostly because some stuff can get bulky and if I have to hold the crap up against my chest when I'm walking, it's time for a basket of some sort. But I do that anyway.


So I just bring the bag with me and throw stuff in there? Couldn't women have big purses and achieve the same thing? Except they would just be stealing the stuff. But who would know the difference?

And checking out... Throw the bag on the conveyor belt or take the items out like you would with a wagon? How does the cashier not know you aren't hiding something in the bag if the former?

I know, I know. But I would rather look like a dumbass on here than a tote virgin in real life. And someone on here must be that douche bag who walks around at Whole Foods with their tote bag. Give me the procedure, please?

i ****ing hate when stores don't have plenty of hand baskets. I started driving a couple blocks further to a Ralph's cause Albertsons didn't have anymore ready to go when I got there.

I like to have all my stuff separate too, not too much shit crammed in just one or two bags.

Anyways, I think most of those tote bags you're talking about are mesh and see through?

You could just use the tote bag after you pay for stuff.

But if you enter with an empty tote bag and fill it up and then take it to the cashier and unload it most stores wouldn't have any problem.

You might have problems if you're shopping at a couple of places. Then you be mixed unpaid for items with older paid for stuff.
