If you have trouble remembering your bags, I find it helpful to keep one bag in the car at all times. That way, if I make an unexpected stop, I have it.

Ooh, that drives me CRAZY! Luckily, it's only happened twice. But still. In both cases, I said "If you're just going to throw it away, give it to me and I'll recycle it for you." They were pretty flustered, but I don't care.
