The best feeling: browsing a different store after already doing a good haul, knowing that even if you don’t get anything here, you won’t be empty-handed

The worst feeling: the nervous twinge while walking by the bleepers at exit, even when you haven’t concealed anything with a tag.

Best feeling: Throwing all my old junk away finally because I know I can replace it for free. Saving for a free vacation with resold goods. Getting to literally have new hobbies and interests because I can collect everything for said hobby for free.

Other good feelings: Not having buyer's remorse with shoddy goods. It was free, so just throw it away; not having to stand in a long line of paying customers, not having to pay tax on these already overpriced items.

Omg, yess. Somebody finally said it! I can't tell you how many times I've lifted a product I found to be shitty and then told myself "this is what I would've been paying for"

I'm with you there 100% as well. Leaving aside that these sales taxes go mostly for government employee salaries, benefits, and pensions we can only dream of, the sales tax is actually a form of false price advertising: example, in the Canadian province where I live, retailers collect 13% sales tax from customers but actually only have to remit 4.4% to the government.

Yesss love that I’m not attached to stuff or rather, don’t have to be when I know I can just easily replace it!

Best feeling: deceiving the greedy corporations that think they're collecting absurdly high prices while stealing working class wages. The joke is on them. Every day!
