    New to me. Thanks for sharing.

    Of course, I just bought a bunch of those re-usable bags, so the timing is poor.

    MyGreenGuns, the grocery store will give you a stack of the bags if you just ask when you're checking out. They don't care if you put your groceries in them or not. We use 'em for all sorts of stuff around the house. Disposable cutting board is one of my favorites.

    Neat, too bad that around here paper bags are right up there with dodo birds in availability.

    Really? They're usually stacked in the checkout stand where it's kinda hard to see. Ask about it next time you're in Kroger's.

    The little girl in the video is precious. I'll not be eating in households with small children for a while.

    It's a three-year-old's reflex: point a camera at one, and his or her finger immediately enters the nearest nostril.

    Will have to start getting the in-laws paperbags again. They are all the local commissary uses.

    Cool trick with the stock of paper bags I have sitting in the garage, and the peanut poking her head in the scene is adorable.

    Can't watch video currently, but the paper bag trick is a great one if you have big target backers to staple onto.

    I just ask politely for paper bags at the grocery store once in a while, and let them pile up in the trunk next to the bag full of targets, misc. range stuff and the staplegun. No reason you can't hack up the bags on the range tables, at least at my range.
