If you are lifting by yourself...

Go on the busiest day, try to catch a fitting room door just as someone exits, detag and conceal the merchandise and then leave immediately afterwards. Do not go wondering around and don't leave in a rush. Just make a steady path to the exit.

Either hide the tags on the way out of the exit, put them in a pocket of another clothing, or double stick them on other clothes.

I am going to guess most store cameras run a private network that is isolated from their point of sale and corporate traffic. At a minimum I would assume they are on their own vlan. Thus, you would need access to their communication room or if you can find a rogue RJ45 network. And after that you have to figure out what software they are running and how to crack the feed or get access to their storage device.

It will depend on the kind of tracker.

If it is an active tracker that uses a cellular signal I would assume any device that detect CDMA or GSM traffic should help you locate it. If it is a passive tracker I do not believe you will be able to locate it other than a good old manual search.

Same as every store:

  1. Someone goes in and checks the store and makes notes about location
  2. Another person goes in and gathers the items into one area and detags if needed
  3. Last person walks in with a store bag, picks up all items, and immediately leave

Honestly, skip the phone call trick. LP are well aware of it. Keep your hands free so nothing can be grabbed out of your hands or you accidentally drop something. Best to not block your peripheral vision, have all your senses unobstructed so you can bolt with maximum effort if needed.

Not in Canada but in the states: Construction: framing, concrete, deck building. Back of the house at a restaurant: dishwasher, bus boy, maybe bar back. Landscaping: tree trimming, wood chopping, stump grinding. Depending on city you might have bike delivery. If you work in a restaurant you can pocket a good bit of cash and just never declare it unless you are tipped via credit card. The best positions are bar tender and delivery. Strip club as either dancer or shot seller. And sex work.

I few more things I would add:

Cutting, shaping, and welding metal.

Woodworking... cutting, sanding, joinery, staining, painting.

3D printing

How to cut, break glass, and smooth the edge. You can learn this in 20-30 minutes and only need $10-15 worth of tools that last you the rest of your life.

I think you have to strike a balance between all things.

Yes, you do need to learn technology to get by. Most all jobs require some level of basic tech at the OS, network, SQL, scripting, and applications. Even if you run your own company you are going to want/need these skills.

You want to learn basics about your car. Be able to can change all the basics: oil, oil filter, air filter, flat tire... the more you know the less you have to pay and it also helps if you don't feel like doing the work you will at least have an idea if you are getting ripped off. I personally dug a bit deeper and learned to replace my brakes, just about every fluid, timing belt, CV joint, O2 sensor. The downside is you will need to acquire a good bit of standard and metric tools.

You should learn as many stages of home building as possible. You don't need to can build a home but understand framing, vapor barrier, insulation, basic electrical, plumbing and how to replace most of the standard items: faucet, sink, switch, outlet, AC filter, garage door, garbage disposer. You will also need a few tools here.

Learn to work the land. Either learn a little bit out soil or hydroponics. Once you grow your own food you will hate eating every fresh produce from the big box stores.

I am learning about animals and husbandry. I don't have a lot of advice as I just started acquiring book knowledge on this.

You should learn the basics of law and the political systems for your area.

Learn how to navigate.

Learn the basics of first aid.

I am sure this is way off from what you are asking... but you can go deep into technology and it easily becomes all consuming. I am have been heads down in Linux for three months and I still feel like a newbie. But, the other side of tech is if you are able you can live off the land and only need enough tech to go off grid and can get access to knowledge.

u/ziq had a post where they spoke about building their home and all the things they learned along the way. I will search and see if I can find the post.

Why would you use a zip bomb? Wouldn't it only crash one system and after a reboot they would be back up?

You could try renting a storage unit. You will likely need to be over the age of 18 and have a debit or credit card.

There are always other options that will depend on time, money, and complexity.

You could buy a waterproof and pressure proof container. Find a remote area you can access, dig a ditch and bury it. Straight out of being a pirate.

The next option is locating space. Maybe a locker at a gym, company, or school. I do not know your age so my recommendations are going to be all over the map.

I am going to assume apartment/flat is a structure that you rent and thus can not make any kind of modifications to. Not knowing the layout of the domicile makes it hard to make any physical structure recommendations.

  • You could remove a ventilation grate and hide a safe or the materials directly in the tunnels.
  • Check out the furnace and see if there is enough space to safely store items in a cavity there.
  • You might have a boiler or other large mechanical systems where you could find a few hiding places.
  • If you have a drop ceiling there are numerous place there to store lightweight equipment.

It may be worth finding a trusted person who does not have the scrutiny that your home has. Pay that individual to store items for you.

Do you have access to a keys and a vehicle. There are places you could hide small items in the boot.

I do not have a lot of good advice. I have only lifted from there three times over the years. They do have good camera placements but blind spots still exists.

My advice is to go when they are crowded. Saturdays tend to be the best day. If you can plan your trip when a vendor is onsite I feel it is a little easier if you are not lifting any of the vendors products. They put a lot of emphasis on showcasing the vendors material and ensuring the booth setups are watched. I grab a competitors item and ask the vendor what are the pluses and minuses of their product vs the one I am holding. After their speech I ask them to hold one of their products for me while I put this other item back.

You will never be able to do a walk-out in these type of stores. There are way too many staff present and vigil. Don't try walking out with a backpack either. Those are heavily watched. Do not grab more than four items. I would roam around the store and learn the layout a little. Figure out what item(s) you want, where you need to go to get back to the vendor, and which path you are going to take to conceal. Once you are ready try and grab two of the items you want, go ask your question, conceal one item, put the other item back on the rack or in the case and then walk out.

Just be aware that this is TN. It is a red state, very cop friendly, and you are lifting at a store that sells weapons. I would guess that 50% of the customers and most of the retailers are conceal carry.

You know.. the more I think about his I would not go with this plan. The risk is pretty great for a $100 knife. I would go lift some easy items and resell them. I myself feel very confident because I used to visit these stores twice a year when my old church did youth retreats.

If you do want to proceed reply and I will PM you the stores I would try this at. Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg are the two areas you would want to do this. Do not do this outside Chattanooga, Franklin, or Murfessboro. I also would not this if you are dark skinned. You will be watched the entire time you are in the store.

Do you currently have a job? If not, you should get a small part time gig or 'create' a job.

If you go the create a job route... Setup an Ebay account, Craigslist, and any other virtual market place app. Buy something cheap at a thrift and resell the item to yourself on one of the marketplaces. Be super excited and share it with your parents. You will now use those proceeds to continue to 'buy' items that you also flip on the marketplace. Everytime your parents ask it is either something you just bought and getting ready to sell or something you bought with profits from flipping items.
