I'm with you on all that guilt (as you know from my emails) but I can pass on one tip: Keep your reusable grocery bags in your car/truck at all times and then you'll never have to guess. I have 9 bags and they are easily the equivalent of 20+ plastic bags. They sit upright, and very neatly stack next to each other. Plus up here, they give you five cents off your purchase per bag and bonus points for rewards programs at the stores.

The problem I ran into before I kept them all in my "trunk" was that I'd underestimate how many I needed. Now I just haul them everywhere I go and I don't have to recycle all those horrible bags. I hated those!

It's harder for me to remember to take them TO the store to recycle them --they're made from a type of plastic that our curb side recycling won't take-- as when I'm going to the store I'm thinking of what I need to purchase, not what I need to take in. Working on it though.
