    Hmph. The question was "Approximately how often do /you/ remember to
    take your own bags (or backpacks etc.) *into* the the various food
    market(s)... i.e. not whether you remember once you're in there
    (and 'exploit' your offspring to go back to the car to get them)...

    However, as your D-u's do this service for you, Alpha is quite welcome

    {Superiority complex on}
    I've been using my own bags for over 30 years. Got some cloth ones,
    and fought the store personnel for years to be allowed to
    a) bring the bags into the store, and
    b) use the bags to stow my purchases.

    Most of them I got for free or $1, and they lasted for ages.

    I will admit to taking a liking to the insulated bags, as my cooler
    was getting to be a pain to cart around...

    They are integral parts when I go out shopping. Besides, it's
    not exploitation if they willingly assist their ailing
    father-unit! (Especially when it provides them such rich
    opportunities to pop off with relative immunity.)

    The nearest Albertsons is at least 20 miles down the coast and Costco is
    another 20 minutes past that and Trader Joe's is another 10 minutes past
    Costco. I carry 2 things. First is a cooler with a chunk or 2 of Blue Ice
    for the really frozen stuff. Secondly Costco makes an assortment of 3 large
    bags, very large bags. One the bags is insulated with 3 Velcro strips on
    the top. I try to make a major trip every 2 weeks or so. Both of these
    items have been very useful in keeping the frozen goods frozen. For the
    local store a while ago they had a coupon for 2 free canvas bags which I
    almost always use.

    Since this is geriatric heights if you have more than 2 bags of groceries
    the box persons at the "Cookie Crock" local store who bag the groceries
    actually wheel the basket out to your car and will load the trunk or back
    seat for you.

    Service. no tipping is expected or accepted.

    Truth be told, it's somewhat comforting to know that other
    people have trouble remembering to bring the bags with them.
    Other people who seem to have their act together find themselves
    at checkout thinking, I didn't bring the bags.

    We probably remember our bags 70% of the time or so. When we don't, I
    just get paper ones and use them for things like collecting paper
    recyclables, setting out Freecycle goods, and draining fried foods.

    It took me a while before I got into the habit of talking my bags
    with me to do the shopping. I started putting the bags into the car
    right after unpacking the groceries. Now that it is summer I run
    most of my errands by bicycle or by motorcycle and always take a
    back pack with me.

    I have put them in the back seat, I still don't think to bring
    them in. Thing is, they're especially handy since you don't
    have to worry about how much you load them up, they are so
    sturdy. There is no downside to bringing the bags, which makes
    is so ridiculous that I forget. I'm going to start putting it on my
    shopping lists, bring bags.

    I grab my shopping list (if I remember it!) and stick it in my pocket.
    When I pull it out, in the store, it wouldn't be helpful for it to say
    "Bring Bags".
