Just wanted to thank everyone in this community. There's a lot of excellent advice here, and many friendly & helpful members looking out for one another. I don't trust many anymore, but it's really great knowing there's at least one place in the world where there's still honor (among thieves). Sad I'd probably trust most of y'all than someone local. lol...
Anyways, thanks to said advice I had my first real haul in a long time. Beyond everyday items/groceries and simply not scanning (which I also did but still.) Just got back & pretty excited. Little shaky from the rush.
14 cans of cat food ranging from $.68-$1.08ish each for my senior kitteh, 3x $19.99 hair spray, and a $75ish Lego X-Wing that if I didn't need the cash would probably assemble, spray paint gold, and use as a trophy of sorts. (Would have had a bitchin new shirt, but used it as a "this isn't scanning" to throw off some attention at the last second.)
Baby steps for me, but it certainly helped build confidence. Maybe I'll graduate to electronics sooner rather than later. Maybe not & stick to toy or misc. reselling, but either way definitely re-finding my way again. For better or worse, for the first time in a long time I feel like "me" again. (Yay Chaotic Neutral alignment! 😅)
But yeah, thanks again. And I wish you all the best on your hunts. Live long and prosper, fam. 🖖
