When you are vacuuming, tie a plastic grocery bag to the handle of your vacuum cleaner. That way, you can pick up any large items that your cleaner won't, then make only one trip to the trash can to throw it out.

That's a good idea. It's also good to have a plastic bag handy when mowing grass, especially when mowing near the roadside.
Since I have allergies, I love the idea of keeping the plastic baggie for large debris. Then for our vacuum, you'd just dump the contents of the dirt cup in with the rest and into the garbage pail it all goes!
I'll also pass on the hint about keeping a bag handy while working in the yard. For some odd reason, people seem to hit our yard more than others with their "car trash." :P
