Thanks for the warning - I wouldn't normally cycle with carrier bags, so this was just a case of "Oops, bought too much stuff, how do I get it home?" Now that I've done it once, I have a better idea of how much I can fit into the bag.

I used to have a big camping rucksack when I was in the Scouts, and that would potentially be a useful thing to have again, e.g. for holidays, so I'll keep an eye out for any sales.

As for multiple trips, the main disadvantage is having to slog my way up that huge hill. Ah well, it's good exercise, and hopefully it will get easier with practice; I used to struggle with a couple of hills near work that I now race up in 2nd (middle) gear. I'm not too concerned about hitting weight limits: I've lost 10kg since last October, so I can carry extra luggage now.
