How do you distribute the lemons?

You have 1023 lemons and 10 bags. You have to distribute these lemons in these 10 bags in any way you choose. But when I ask for a certain number of lemons you have to give them in terms of bags without transferring the lemons from other bags. How do you distribute the lemons?

Starting with 1 lemon in a bag, each bag contains double the number of lemons as the previous bag. ie 1,2,4,8,16,32,64,128,256,512. That way whatever number of lemons I would ask for you would just add up the bags to equal the number asked.
