Chicago STARTS 7-CENT BAG TAX ON FEB. 1 2017! Options for portable bags!

Starting February 1,2017 stores will charge all customers 7 cents for a plastic or paper bag if you do not bring your own.
The 7 cent 'bag tax' puts five cents into the cities general fund and stores will get to keep that extra 2 cents but of course they will have to pay sales tax on the tax every quarter.

Here are some bag options that will save you some money in the long run.Bags come in all flavors and sizes. We like the ones that come in multiple packages.

Here are three different ones available from Amazon.com,one of our favorite online stores.
