It's interesting to see that you will need to purchase a "disposable" bag for 5 cents or you can buy a Big Blue Bag reusable for 59 cents. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/17507534/site/newsweek/ Here is a link for the IKEA deal.

Honestly, it is such a simple action to do. On the flip side of your post, I wanted to tell you that I've met some very nice grocery staff at Trader Joe's, Vons, Henry's, Jimbo's and Whole Foods as well as Target that thank me for bringing my own bags. Trader Joe's enters you into a raffle if you recycle your brown bags or bring your own and Jimibo's has a wooden nickel program allowing you to either get $.05 back or better yet donate it to a local charity (Shameles plus for Girls On The Run as I think we are eventually going to have a box). Target has a bag recycling program so if you have more "trash can liners" than you can possibly use, bring them by your local store- there is a receptical outside of the entrance. That’s great.

This is a great first step! I think the price will need to be higher for people to start caring about it. Also a lot of stores offer rebates when you bring your own bag, like Trader Joes and Henry's/Whole Food. I think it's like 5 cents.
