How do you keep a toddler in the stroller when she knows how to unbuckle herself?

My daughter is the worst at running off! I try to hold her hand and let her walk but she wont just walk nicely, it's a constant struggle so I bring the stroller. We're walking along and next thing I know she's unbuckled herself, stumbles out of the stroller and runs off on me. I always catch her, give a strong NO and put her right back in which case she does it again a few minutes later. I have tried snacks, drinks, toys you name it and they hold her attention for a few minutes maybe before she throws them on the floor and is out again. Often times I end up carrying her while she struggles to get down and just pushing an empty stroller but she is heavy and I cant get anything done this way. I have no choice but to take her with me everywhere as my husband is always to busy to watch her so I can do anything. How can I teach her to walk nicely or stay in the stroller?

BTW - She is barely 2 1/2 and has been doing this for at least a month or so.
