I have a station wagon so I just put all my gear in the back of my car. I have a sheet of cardboard down in the wagon that everything lays on. I have a old school cafeteria lunch tray I throw on the ground to stand on while getting waders on.

When I get back home my car goes in the garage, I hang my waders up on a hook right next to the car and the tray with the wet/dirty wader boots go on a shelf right next to the car also. My garage is heated so even in cold weather my gear is dry in a couple of hours. It's gotten to the point that I don't use the taco bag anymore. The taco bag for me is just an unnecessary item that serves no purpose.
