Mini Shopping Bags

Did you know you can get free mini key chain shopping bags from Publix? Oh. You did? Well, no one told me!


Story Time! I'm checking out and the cashier lady says, "Did you catch any good Pokémon?" All I think is, "Huh?" I look around and my phone is put away, I'm not wearing any Pokémon merch, nor did I buy any Pokémon related grocery. Meanwhile, the checkout boy says to the cashier, "Pokémon?! Nobody plays that anymore. That came out ages ago. Why would you even mention that?" She responds, "I saw her playing it the other day."


I'm like, "daHeck?! I haven't been here in days so where did you see me and why the eff were you so close that you could look at what I'm doing on my phone?" But, I'm just thinking this because I still haven't said a single word. The two of them carry on talking and I'm just eyeballing them with the stinkeye. Her because she's a stalker and him 'cause he's a Pokémon hating punk!

Anyway as she hands me my receipt she's got it wrapped around a little green thing. I didn't stop to see what it was until I got to my car. And then I was all, "Oh, that's cute! That girl's still creepy though."


So, next time I went to Publix I asked the cashier lady (a different one!) if she had any of the mini bags. She didn't but said they get them randomly and give them to people who bring in their own shopping bags (which I never have). She flagged a manager and asked if they had any in back and they did and now I have 4 of them! Huzzah!

The End.

  1. Oh wow awesome! We just lost our Martin's here in Virginia which are being replaced with Publix markets, and I carry my own shopping bags. (I really hate those plastic bags because like the hoarder I am, I 'save' them and they build up into a pile) so I wonder if you can get one for every shopping bag you bring in??lol. I get a discount at Krogers for bringing my own bags, hmmm..

    1. Lisa, I like getting the plastic because I always use the bags for taking out trash. Sometimes I get paper when I have a project to work on. My sister though, she LOVES fabric shopping bags and must have thousands of them in her car.

  2. Cute bags, and perfect for environmentally conscious dolls (not sure if any of mine are, though). Too bad there aren't any near me.

    And, wow, that cashier was being a total creeper! I hope you stay away from her line from now on.

    1. Champagne, I think I have problem with cashiers in general at that store. I'm always like, "Nope, that one's too slow," "That one licks her thumb."

    2. Licks her thumbs ... ick, major ick! Unsanitary ... just sooo nasty.

  4. Those bags are cute! We don't have any Publix anywhere near us, though.

    Is that a Liv dress? If so, I think that was the best dress made for the Liv dolls. Seems to work on everyone!

    1. Barb, I'm pretty positive that dress is from the Liv Hayden and House set. Ah the good old days when you could get Liv clothing.

  5. The bags are cute and we don't have Publix. But the important thing here is, I have to know: Were you playing Pokémon? Because that stalker cashier was certainly paying attention.

  10. Worth being stalked :D No Publix in my area, I thought it was a European chain.
    What happened to you reminded me of something:a girl who was supposedly my doppelganger moved into the neighborhood where I'd lived for most of my life. People who'd seen me hundreds of times regularly got us confused. So did some students who went to a nearby university with her. It was weird but I assumed they were right and was dying to see her for myself.
    So, one day, we're in the same small shopping center and a storeowner points her out to me.
    Muff, essentially, we looked nothing alike and we didn't dress in remotely the same style. We both had light tan skin and auburn hair, that's it. Even on that last feature, her hair was cut in a bob with bangs and mine was all hip length. We just cracked up that anyone could mistake one of us for the other.
    Ever since then I've thought eyewitness identification shouldn't be used by the justice system.

    1. LOL, Maricha! That happened to me twice. Once at community college I met a girl who everyone insisted was my doppelganger. The same thing happened at university and this girl became my roommate. The only thing we had in common was that we were all overweight, wore glasses and had short hair. That was all it took I guess. I have two sisters and we don't think we look anything alike, but people who see us without the other will say correctly, "Aren't you so-and-so's sister." I think we just don't see what other people see.

  11. What awesome bags! Wish we had a Publix!

    Sheesh, that cashier's a creeper, though. And the bag boy is worse as a Pokemon-hater!

  14. I don't think there is a Publix in my area or I would go directly there! Cute! Congrats! Your blog has disappeared from my reading list again. Drat!

  15. This is such a great resource that you are providing and you give it away for free. I love seeing websites that understand the value of providing a quality resource for free. It is the old what goes around comes around routine.
