My first thought, and maybe this is dumb, but I was thinking put a gallon sized ziplock baggy in your purse and put the yarn in that then squish it, pushing as much air out of it as possible (even sucking the air out? Hahaha). I’ve done this when trying to pack bulky things smaller for traveling or craft storage and it helps a bit. Anything else I can think of would just be more inconspicuous than having a bulky purse. Lots of women do.

Scary that basic levels of respect you learn in elementary school are now considered “far left” hahaha...you have freedom of speech, but that doesn’t mean other people have to put up with your bullshit. Go sit around in your house with your bros and bask in each other’s testoerone, maybe that’ll finally gain your father’s approval.

I love going places that don’t have people counting your items. If there is someone counting them though, or even if there isn’t in case someone is watching you on camera, I collect a messy pile of things in my arms that’s impossible to keep track of especially if they’re all black or the same color or whatever. You can lose track of an item or two or three in that pile easy. One thing I did recently too at Walmart was come out and say, sorry one sec I need to grab a different size, and then I grabbed a couple shirts instead of just exchanging them and tucked one in my purse. Because I grabbed an extra the number of items still matched the number they’d written on the door. It seems like something someone would notice if the were paying attention but the fact is they’re doing a lot of other stuff and didn’t even give me a passing glance on the way out, and a lot of the time they’re gone when you come out. Besides, even if they noticed they could assume that you were out of their sight while going back and forth and could have easily exchanged things, put them back, for another one or whatever. It’s confusing a little for me to even explain it lol so I think it’s a good technique in a pinch.

Wish I could figure out how to get things out of tjmaxx though omg...

That’s a fair thought. If it’s in a plaza I wonder if it would help to run, say, from Wally World to a couple stores over with your car parked in that lot. But then the reasonable thought would be that the cops could just be like, hey let’s ask the pet store if we can check their cams. I dunno. Still learning.

Thanks so much, that’s brilliant! I’ll definitely look into it. Admittedly I’m kinda afraid if I do the headphone thing they’ll see it necessary to grab me to get my attention, but I’ll think about it, smart. I know they’re not allowed to but people be crazy. Don’t think they would. The fishing line and fake plate thing is like...wow. I’m stoked about it. Thanks!

Thanks so much, that’s really sweet. Wondering if it’d be okay to do this without false plates and instead just park at the back of the lot. Some people seem to say park way up front and use a false plate but others say parking far away at a Walmart is fine. If you or anyone else has thoughts on this I’d love to hear it. Thanks.
