Just got out of the grocery store, after spending $225 of cash. The store had 4 (10 items or less) and 12 (regular) checkout lines running; but only 2 baggers for everywhere.

Do I just have a cheap grocery store or are all the grocery stores acclimating us to bag our own groceries? I would much rather watch the cashier ring up groceries so I have no double charges or surprises of prices of groceries.

What do you guys do? Bag your own or just stand there until someone comes along?

All the ones ive seen have been self bagging for 9/10 years.

Most grocery stores have it so the cashier bags while ringing everything up.

Sav-a-lot doesn't bag at all. puts your stuff right back in the cart. You box your own on the counter at the front, with the boxes you gathered as you go down the aisles. Definitely cheaper but no name brands.

My local independent grocery store does that. Not just Wal-Mart. The major grocery chains like Kroger and Publix are the only ones I've ever seen that have dedicated baggers around here.

I shop at Safeway, and the cashier bags. I have been using the self checkout lately though.

I won't bag my own unless I go to Aldi's.

If you're gonna charge me $3.55 for a gal of milk, $1.70 for a dozen eggs, and $2.99/lb for ground beef you're goddamn right I'm not bagging my own shit too. When I get old I'm going to be a crotchety old man.

If you had used a Dignity/EBT card, someone would have bagged them for you.

I refuse to bag my own. I don't get paid to work there.

This is where Aldi kicks ass. You stand there with your cart and watch your items get rung up quicker than Aimless swings a banhammer. All your items go into another cart that you take to a separate bagging/boxing area and you box/bag your shit up the way you like it. I prefer boxes because they insulate and Aldi usually sticks them out there for you to use.

Aldi needs to get their shit together not me
