Story time! Just got back from a local, small town dollar store run. (Pretty much the only store that isn't mom & pops.) Was bored so thought I'd case the place out and see what, if anything, was both safe & worth flipping. Which, sadly, doesn't appear to be too much. Maybe some supplements, face cleansing, etc. stuff if I sold multiples at once? Unfortunately the ones I would have picked only had one of each in stock at the moment so passed this trip.
Grabbed some pens, gorilla glue, and eye drops. Things I could actually use and would inevitably need; maybe flip the glue if it was worth it. (Seriously, every cent counts at this point.) Bought some candy to satisfy my sweet tooth and headed out the door right next to where I checked out. And then it happened. The dredded "beep. beep." of the newly installed towers (and no, it wasn't because of me... this time.)
Continued walking as if nothing happened, had some difficulties getting the right key on my chain due to some nerves (haven't triggered any towers anywhere in quite some time so startled me a bit), glanced up (no one came out; to be expected though right? have to be seen to be pursued out the doors/while on property?), and calmly drove off. Probably wont go back to this particular store for at least a month and only after a shave & a hair cut after that.
For the life of me couldn't figure out what set it off though. Waited to get home to check everything. Feel like an idiot now, but it's what I get for nabbing something outside of my norm. Big yellow box on the glue: "Electronically protected. If found call..." 😖#fml
Bit of a rush. So that was fun, but no longer really seeking that rush. Just want to get ahead on bills for once. Just a little ahead, yknow?
So anyways, anyone have any advice besides "be more observant"? lol 😅 Maybe item suggestions to flip that shouldn't be source or otherwise tagged? Should try flipping the tagged items or no? And would magnets work on their tag? It's behind the sticker, yeah, since I don't think they have them on the same item at like Walmart?
