This is what I stole from Target this morning. Yep, put them in my pocket, and walked out without paying. Of course, it was an accident- I had put them in my pocket instead of the cart because I didn't want Samantha to drop them.

I am writing this post about the incident to create accountability for myself; on my next trip, I must remember to pay for the lovely things.
Sadly, this is NOT the first time I've walked out of a Target with unpaid-for merchandise. Last winter shopping with my mother and sister I had tried on a dress over my clothes and forgotten to take it off. I simply walked out of the dressing room and out of the store before I noticed in the parking lot.

Lesson learned: it is really really easy to steal.
Other lesson learned: It isn't worth the guilt to not remedy the situation ASAP.
