A recent study found that people tend to purchase paper bags when it’s a good deal, not when it doesn’t cost anything.
The study found people tend toward buying paper bags because they’re less expensive than plastic bags and they make it easier to store items in.
Paper bags are also more durable than plastic.
“Paper is very durable,” said Lisa Gagnon, associate professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business and an author of the study.
“But people tend not to buy paper bags.”
Gagnan’s study surveyed more than 5,000 shoppers across the country to see what factors influence people’s buying habits.
Gagnen found that the top three factors were the value of the items they were buying, the price and the type of bag they were looking at.
“The best way to tell is to ask,” Gagno said.
“What do you want in a paperbag?”
Paper bags have long been used to hold food, paper, clothing and other items.
They were first introduced in the United States in the 1950s.
People were more willing to pay more for paper bags after they saw how easy it was to keep their food, clothing, furniture and other personal belongings organized.
People also began using paper bags to keep small items like shoes, shoeshine bottles and small paper grocery bags in their homes.
Paper is also a great option for keeping small items such as shampoo, soap and detergent in their house.
“It’s great for small stuff,” Gaguen said.
People in her study also liked to keep a few items of personal property in their paper bags.
“I don’t buy a lot of my clothes because they are in paper bags,” Gondo said.
Gondo also likes the idea of storing things in paper as well.
“Sometimes I buy clothes in paper because I have so much stuff, and I think if I have a little stuff, I’m less likely to want to put it in a dryer,” she said.
The paper bag has also been used as a storage container for small electronics.
“A lot of the electronics we use for our everyday lives, like cameras, can’t hold that much stuff in their bag,” Ganga said.
While most people will prefer to keep items in their personal bags, there are also people who would rather keep their clothes, personal effects and other valuables in their own.
“You can’t take your things out of a paper wallet or a paper pen,” Gagne said.
When Gagnons study was published in March, the National Retail Federation (NRF) announced it would offer paper bags at lower prices.
The NRF said it would lower the prices of paper bags by 75 percent to 75 percent.
Ganga believes that will be a positive development for the paper bag industry.
“People are buying paper, paper bags and paper products because of their convenience, convenience, durability, cost,” Gagos said.
