Thanks for sharing this - I recognize the feeling of stressful frenzy that can sometimes creep into our everyday, mundane activities, and as you (or the cashier at Trader Joe's) point out, it isn't necessary! When I do manage to notice I am getting into this, I sometimes tell myself, "You have plenty of time", but "Mindful Bagful" is definitely a nice addition to the toolbox!
