    I actually like the plastic grocery bags. It saves a bit of $ on buying trash bags. Going back to the USA days, I don't think I bought any plastic trash bags in over 10 years.

    A good point. Since my local supermarket here, Janet's, cut down on the double bagging, my supply of trash bags is dwindling fast. I don't think there is a good alternative to plastic bags for those.

    And without plastic bags what would the locals use to put on their head when it's raining?

    Or cover the top of the Rice Pot with after the aluminum lid gets all bent out of shape?

    The “stylist” ones use the disposable shower caps you find in hotel bathrooms.

    I also go to Playero a few times during my stay of 2-3 months. I find the baggers very helpful No complains in packing stuff. They are very polite. Since I usually buy about a $100 of groceries I tip them about 100 pesos. I think it is a shame that they are taking away jobs from honest hard working kids.

    Thanks for this information. I shall start taking some with me.

    This thread - and my empty fridge - might call for a trip to Playero....

    scout the situation

    Girl baggers are a good idea
    I always thought a topless car wash would do well - certain hours of the days

    Toronto had one but it was shut down...
    Traffic jams at bar closing time....

    It was a wet - T-Shirt situation..... true story
