I like bringing my day pack with me when I go grocery shopping. It's a bag that I know is durable and something I already have. I also tend to work on my juggling skills when out for just a literal handful of items and carry them without a bag. Give it a shot and work on your grip strength! 

I found reusable mesh bags on Amazon to avoid using filmy plastic bags for things like apples. I heard that filmy plastic can never be recycled.
