"Target and Feathers"

It is the Official Policy of this website to NOT link to retail websites unless I’m going to get a cut of the revenue (hey, I’m honest about it), but when I saw the following printed on the side of a Target shopping bag, I felt I had to give them some serious acknowledgement for (a) environmental awareness and (b) humorous awareness:

REUSE

10 WAYS TO REUSE YOUR TARGET BAG

  1. Tiny Trashcan Liner*
  2. Doggy Duty*
  3. Water Balloon**
  4. Roadtrip Rubbish*
  5. Soggy Laundry*
  6. Ice Pack for Head Lump***
  7. Toiletry Tote*
  8. Kitty Litter Liner****
  9. Tomorrow’s Lunchbag*
  10. Care Package Padding*****

* I can personally vouch for having used Target shopping bags for this purpose. They are larger and made of better material than your average supermarket bag, so I generally save them for uses #5, 7 and 9.
** Oh dear. I wonder if the corporate liability lawyers know about this one.
*** I feel blessed that I haven’t used one for this purpose yet.
**** Never had a cat, wouldn’t know; I guess they need to provide equal time after #2.
***** Warning: Recipient may resent not getting any bubble wrap to pop.
