Back when I was young, I remember pretty much the only time you were given a bag or paper wrapping when you bought something in Mexico was if you purchased feminine hygiene products. I used to kid that the wrapping around your purchase was a dead giveaway that it was that time of the month. When we went to the market, we brought our own sturdy reusable bags made out of either ixtli or plastic, and for smaller purchases, it wasn’t a problem to carry them in our hands until we got home.
