Same, rather irritating that the grocery stores were able to push the county governments (and are trying to get state) into this asinine bag ban, where the stores can't carry "single use" bags (that few use as "single use", and it isn't like the "reusable" bags have to be used more than once) and now charge 10 cents a bag.

Yup, and I always have, but because not enough people did, it now costs to get bags...

Yes, I line my little bins in each room with one. Then the full bags get emptied into the big bin outside. Some places here charge 5p per bag so I make sure I reuse the bags a lot before they end up in the bin. The rest goes in the recycling bin with other recyclables.

Same here, over in the just as green New England Hippie areas--

I still use actual trash bags, which have handles and antiseptic odor control, for the trash, but those big 10-cent biodegradable grocery bags are perfect to put the recyclables out for collection, so getting a dollar's worth has me set for a few months. No breaker.
Either that, or I have to go five miles out of town just to get some more big Target plastic bags.

What, you don't get one of those big homestyle-kitchen double-open-ended socks with a handle to put on the kitchen door (and stuff the plastic bags into one end or pull them out like Kleenex at the other), like most quaint kitchens over here?

Yes, and for other miscellaneous things, such as herb-picking.
