I some times Hide Items in the Store

I some times hide items in a store.  In a few stores.  I know what days a section has its items Marked down to Clearance.  If I find something I want, but dont want to pay the price it is.  I will Hide it. 

Week one on Clearance items go 15-30% off, 2 weeks later if still there they get marked down to 50% off.  then a week or 2 later they will be marked down to 70% off. 

I have hid items in places people will not look in the store to keep the item i want safe until it is marked down enough for me to get it. 

Example.  Kids socks 1 set is $1.00.  Marked down 30%.  Well I still dont want to pay .70ยข for the socks.  So I grabbed a stack of like 15 of them, and hid them.  They have been at 30% off for 3 weeks.  So i am hoping they will be 50% off next week.  I will then purchase them.

I know I am not the only person to do this.  I have read about couponers that have hiding places in Drug stores for the big Sale items.  They go in on Friday or Saturday when they find out what the big sale/Money making items are and Hide the items in the store so they can make sure to get the deal.

Ok. I've never done anything like that, I can afford to pay $1 for socks.

I used to hide books in the library when I was at university.

Both so I could have access to them when I wanted, and just for the sake of making things harder for others, if it was a curved class.

*runs and hides*

How weird... And just so you know people are usually facing in stores so they will find your stash and put them back where they belong LOL
