Shopping Bag is the fifth album by The Partridge Family released in March 1972. It reached #18 on the Billboard album charts in the US and spent a total 17 weeks on the chart and was certified Gold. The vinyl release of the album contained a novelty plastic shopping bag. It is available on CD and iTunes.

As with most Partridge Family albums, several well-known songwriters contributed songs to the album. Perhaps the most famous were Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart, who gave the album the track "Girl, You Make My Day." Tony Romeo, another prolific songwriter, contributed several tracks to the album.

"It's One of Those Nights (Yes Love)" was released as a US single, peaking at #20 on Billboard's Hot 100. It spent 8 weeks on the charts. "Am I Losing You" was a second US single release, peaking at #59 on Billboard's Hot 100 and staying on the charts for 7 weeks.

Partridge Family lead vocalist David Cassidy wrote "There'll Come a Time" for the album, which would be his third songwriting effort to appear on a Partridge Family album. It would also be his last, as Cassidy's later songwriting efforts would all be released on his solo albums.
