I don't. If I can't find a parking space right next to the cart return I just load all of the groceries in the car, and take DS with me to return the cart. Now with another baby on the way it seems like I am going to be parking in the boondocks to insure I get a space right next to the cart return LOL.

ETA- kids, as in babies, as in not able to get out of the car say under 5.

No I don't, but I also don't return the cart to the cart return area.

If the cart return is very close, yes. I hook her in and lock the door then return. If I had to walk like back to the store to return it, I'd take her with me.

 If it's just me and my son, he goes with me to return the cart.

Well that is why they have cart pushers :]

I worked at walmart and honestly the more work the cart pushers have the faster time passes.
