One form of shoplifting is called box stuffing. This is when you take different items from a store, place them all in a large box with another item, and pay for the item. This technique is covered here along with other good tips for shoplifting from Target.
The only other variation Ive heard is sticking the item you want in a paint can, this blocks frequencies given off by anti theft devices. However, Im assuming, you would get paint on the item and paint cans are too awkward to open and drop something into. There are easier ways to acquire an item.
A metal toolbox works a lot better. I just tested a toolbox to see if it blocks radio frequencies and it worked just fine. So, go into a store like Walmart, grab a metal toolbox, pick a few items with anti theft devices, put them in the toolbox, pay for your toolbox in the back of the store, and walk out through the gardening section.
Remember, even though you are safe from alarms, cameras are still something to be wary of. A customer putting items in a toolbox to carry around is a bit odd looking to someone watching the monitors.
In case you are wondering how to test a container to see that it blocks radio signals: place a cell phone in the container and call it with another telephone. If the cell phone doesn't ring, then the container can block signals.
Another variation would be to get a large metal filing cabinet or the like and stuffing it with various items.
