That's what we do! Not only food store bags but also produce bags, bread bags, newspaper bags, product bags - any kind of plastic bag that's big enough and doesn't have holes in it.... then by each litter box, I have a giant plastic bag (like when we go on a Kohl's shopping spree haha) and put all the smaller bags inside - grab a small bag, scoop, tie it up and chuck it in the trash cans in the garage (well we put each bag on the back steps and next person to the garage takes it out)
In college, I had to take my trash up to the dumpster - so I had a small trash can with a lid that was the kitty can and I'd put the bags in there and then just take that bin up to the dumpster when I was emptying the rest of my trash (about once a week)
Flushable litter is another option if you're not on septic - or you could start a compost pile (not sure if you have to use certain kinds of litter with that or not though)
