Pack a Perfect BagGrocery Bag

Packing groceries….1st real job….at Plumb’s Super Markets….and $ .75 per hour.

Most people remember their first real work. Packing groceries was a great test of doing work well….if not excellent. No plastic bags in 1958.  A paper grocery bag had three distinct layers….all done with precision….on a busy Friday night and all day Saturday.

The perfect layered bag:

  • Bottom – Cans to fit the rectangular bag
  • Middle – Boxed goods – cereal, etc
  • Top – Soft goods – bread, produce   

To just throw items in the bag was unacceptable 

The lesson learned from “grocery store 101”  – do the best at whatever task is at hand.

Note: I still  prefer to pack my own grocery bags.
