A bit of social engineering: instead of letting the security droid at Wal-mart (otherwise known as the "greeter") tell me to leave my bags up front, I was proactive: I said "mind if I leave my bag here?", to which he assented, and I took both bags off my shoulders. I left only the Akona bag, which now has only my sleeping bag and some other less expensive stuff, and put my new Otterbox with my laptop back over my shoulder and walked into the store. Sure enough, he didn't challenge me on it.
