Is anyone really surprised?

If you don't have a reusable bag yet you might as will give in and go get one now. Make sure you tie it your belt so you never forget it. If you walk into a store here in New York and don't have a reusable bag you'll either have to buy one or cradle all of those groceries back to your car.

According to the New York Post, some experts believe we should brace ourselves for a paper bag shortage.
