I hate having to remember picking up things, so I'm modifying how I buy non-perishable items. Right now when I run low I buy a few of whatever it is; instead, I'm going to buy a year's worth at a time for all my non-perishables on the same day. I've started writing the date on packages with a sharpie when I open them so I can track how much I use (I'll add some safety margin). It's not going to save me trips, really, since I just pick things up when I get my perishable food, it's more about having one less thing to think about. There aren't as many items I can do this with as I'd like, but every bit helps.
