reusable shopping bags

IKEA has recently started to charge five cents per plastic bag, but they sell HUGE reusable blue bags for, like, 59 cents each or something like that. So I bought one. And I like it. But it's HUGE. (See a picture of one here.)

So it got me thinking about reusable grocery bags. I would love to have my own reusable grocery bags (you know, the small, standard grocery-bag-size kind) to take with me to the store instead of using plastic or paper bags. So I started looking around on the internet.

Unfortunately, I can't seem to find anyone selling canvas grocery bags for less than $6 each, and I'm sorry, but that's just way too much. I'm not going to spend like $60+ buying reusable grocery bags when I can just use the free ones and then save and reuse them for other things. Yeah, I'm a tightwad.

Does anybody know where you can buy reusable grocery bags for no more than like $1 or $2 each? Anyone know where you can get them for free?

How is it that IKEA can sell HUGE bags for 59 cents each? Do you think it would be OK to use the huge IKEA bag as a grocery bag? (My only fear is that it's so huge and wide, groceries might fall out. Anybody out there have any experience with this?)
