Grocery shopping on a regular day can be a hassle. And in some states, stores are no longer providing plastic bags for free. Though social distancing makes shopping trips longer, it doesn’t mean you have to keep lugging your items in bags that might break.

Sustainable living benefits you and the planet, and this BagPodz Reusable Bag Set from The Grommet is just one example. In my family, plastic tote bags are constantly reused, but the handles are always breaking.

If that’s also you, the Bagpodz could be your fix since they hold up to 50 pounds, and you get 10 bags in the set. Besides being reusable, they make for a great plastic bag alternative because its flat bottom helps big beverage items stand up — not to mention they’re made of rip-stop nylon.

Plus, the BagPodz is easy to carry since the bags are tucked away in the top of the drawstring. You can clip the pod to your shopping cart and when you’re finished with checkout, you pull each bag out of the side like tissues. The BagPodz of 10 goes for $34.95, but you can also shop the BagPodz in a pack of five, too.

The BagPodz set of 10 has more than 300 five-star reviews while the set of five has almost 500 five-star reviews.

One shopper wrote “I absolutely love these bags. I purchased the smaller set initially and just recently purchased the larger set, so we have one in each car. Because they’re neatly organized in this bag, I just keep them on the passenger seat and now I never forget to grab a bag when I run to the store.”

One review explained that the person thought the bags looked small from the product description. However, a different customer commented “While the same general size and shape as the old plastic grocery bags, these hold a lot more and don’t spill out the way the plastic bags did. This has made going green a really pleasant experience!!”

Another review explained the bags were compact, strong and held just as much if not more than the plastic ones.
