I see a counselor, what a surprize! She is concerned that I could end up throwing my whole life away over shoplifting if I get caught. I'm going to make sure I don't get caught. I need to stop, but it's so hard. I might end up lying to her about it so that she gets off my back, but then that defeats the whole purpose. You shouldn't lie to your counselor.

Snagged a Bag

I went to the mall because traffic was really bad. Well, not that I need much of an excuse. I found a cute bag that I really like. I bought it. Not without switching tags for a lower price, but I did buy it. I also bought two shirts. However, I stole 2 plus a scarf. I really like the bag.

Jail--The Musical

It seems like a great idea since they make a musical out of everything. I ended up watching a little bit of a live camera TV show called jail. They arrested a guy for not shoplifting, but burglary. He didn't understand since he had lost all of his money in Vegas and really wanted this TV that was only worth $268. Burglary is a felony. Wow!! I don't think that would happen with clothing. They didn't say anything about breaking and entering, but definitely burglary. I don't understand either.

From what I saw, from having been fingerprinted for work and seeing it all first hand, it really made me think about what I'm risking. I'm risking alot. Not only that, apparently I'm also risking it being a very public affair. Not only might you end up injail, you might end up on TV. That's not the way I would want to be famous. Wow. Something to seriously think about.

Suddenly I Did

I went to the store to pick up a dress that I had bought pre-sale. It was less now, so k I also tried on some jeans, but they were a little bit tight. I bought them anyway because they didn't have my exact size. I can always order from online. I looked around the store and I really thought I was done. I reallydidn't feel like shoplifting. ANd then suddenly I did when I saw two cute silk shirts. Lo and behold, they didn't have security tags.

If it doesn't have a tag, it's going in my bag.

Then I went to petites and I found some cute shirts there too. I bought two shirts, I lifted two more shirts. It seems fair if you ask me. But you didn't ask.

Bought: $217.89

Lifted: $115.00

I feel bad, but not that bad.

Just When I Thought It Was Safe....

Here we go again. I didn't meant to do it. It's just that I went to the store to take advantage of a couple of coupons for a free bra. I needed a strapless bra to go with a dress I bought and a shirt I lifted.

I also switched tags to make a return, returned a ring I had worn and decided I didn't like, and returned a pair of shoes I didn't think I would ever wear.

Then as I was trying on lingerie, I couldn't resist taking some panties that didn't have security tags--especially when one of them was a pair of DKNY panties that I thought were really cute.

I am going to be doing some online shopping from now on so that I don't do this. Maybe by the time I go back to a store I will be cured. The other thing I'm thinking about doing is shopping with a friend so that I don't do anything bad.

Liberating to Just Shop

It feels so liberating to go shopping and just shop. I was SHOPPING. Not shoplifting today. I tried on jeans, I tried on shoes. I THOUGHT about stuff, but I was really actively searching for jeans. Also, it helped that everything had a security tag. I needed to get alterations done, but ran out of time with the jeans. Gosh, jeans can be such a pain!

Yesterday was a little bit different of a story. I went to an outlet store for a department store. I found a cute Theory top for only $24.00 andthought about buying it since it was about 90% off. I didn't really need it and I was trying to meet up with my friends. I spent too much time shopping and was late. I didn't buy the shirt, but I didn't steal it either because it had a security tag.

I did, however, make off with two Oscar de la Renta scarves. He's my favorite designer for scarves. I should have just bought them, but the line was taking too long. Plus they were already in my purse from when I was tryingstuffon in the dressing room. I feel a little bit quilty. There is one person who knows about myhabit and I have been promising her I will stop. It's hard.

Now that i think about it, I wasn't so innocent today either since I returned something with a switched tag. But that's the lesser of the evils I engage in. I don't think they would cart you off for that, they just don't let you return the items.
