When I've finished my knitting for the day, I untie the bag and put my work along with the needles into the bag to keep it all together. If I'm working on several projects at once, it allows me to put them all into my storage tote without the yarns getting tangled together. The shopping bags are also portable so you can grab and go if you're knitting outside your home.
I have a special simple tote I use for the same purpose. (Actually, I have several, but I have to keep them full and demonstrably 'in use' or the DH complains about clutter. :P ) Awesome excuse to knit when and where ever.
