“I don’t do it anymore, but, I used to go to thrift stores, size up the selections, and if I liked something, I’d rush home, find something similar in my wardrobe, wear it back to the thrift store. Then I’d grab the similar-looking item from the rack, go to the change room, put on the item I wanted, and then put MY old piece of clothes on the hanger and hang it back up. No staff would notice I swapped the lookalike items, and it was a way to upgrade my clothes without actually stealing, since I left a similar item in its place! But … then the best thrift shops started putting those dam security tags on things.” – Thrifty
