I had the same problem, a ton of reusable bags at home and none with me at the store when I needed. So I got one of those foldable bags that come inside a tiny pocket of sorts (whose purpose is just to keep it folded). The bag when folded reduces to about the size of a cigarette pack more or less, but unfolded is big enough for an impromptu shopping. And ...

Instead of shopping bags, let me introduce you to my replacement solution: The Bin Unlike with shopping bags, you can carry all of your groceries in one trip!

This also saves time in the parking lot, because you can just carry the bin instead of wheeling a cart out and putting it away ...
