A: Once you have your sold items tagged, it will save you a ton of time at your drop-off if you have them alphabetized by shopper order number. If you have some extra brown grocery bags, it is really helfpul to label them alphabetically and then put the appropriate items in the bags. For example, have a grocery bag for A-E and another grocery bag for F-L, etc. Once you have those bags ready, it’s easy to drop the tagged items into the bags.
