Everything on that thread is too extreme for me! More power to them, but I'm really lazy <g>. Heck, I don't even remember reusable bags the vast majority of the time. And I don't use the plastic ones in my small wastebaskets either because I don't like the way they look. And I refuse to be uncomfortable in my own home so I won't turn down the thermostat in the winter or up in the summer. I know I probably SHOULD care more, but I just can't seem to make myself.
