I did it the other day. Bought some vitamins and hid it under s bag in my trolley so the kids wouldn't want one and only realized when I got back to the car.
My daughter stole a Thomas train once. She put it in the stroller basket that is underneath the seat and I didn't know until I unfolded the pram next time I used it.

I've done this a bunch of times....usually with the pram!
Once was something totally boring like an onion or potato that had rolled out into the basket & wasn't worth unloading both kids and trekking to the other end of the shopping centre to pay for.
Another example was leaving the book shop (after buying some items) and about 4 shops down realizing that I had an item sitting in the folded back hood. Took it back and they were fine.
I'm waiting for the say when I have to shoplift an enuresis pram-load of groceries so I can take my toilet training toddler to the toilet! My options will be:
1) flee with the pram/baby/groceries
2) leave the pram/baby/groceries with store staff
3) get wet

I had a box of nappies in the trolley that the toddler was sitting on which I forgot about, I went back and paid for it.
He also took a Freddo frog from the local Spar once, I'd have taken it back except it melted in his hot little hand, and whilst I scolded him, it's entirely their fault for trying to get little kids to nag their mums for junk until mum (supposedly) gives in. Come on. I barely ever see the stuff that's at my knee height!!
We've had a few things turn up in the folded up hood of the stroller (oops) or just randomly in the back seat, but generally I see his sticky little hands and he generally knows you have to pay for things before they're yours.

I did accidentally once not long after DD was born. I went into the shop with the pram and I had the basket sitting on top, the small packet of disposable nappies wouldn't fit so I put them in the basket under the pram and then forgot they was there. Wasn't till 3 days later when I went to put something else in the basket I realised they were there!

DS has a habit for grabbing anything in his reach when he is in the pram, on more than 1 occasion I've had to go back in to a shop to return what he's grabbed, I now make sure I check before we leave a store

My sister took a mascara from the chemist when I was 10 she was only 1. By the time we realised we had already walked home. One time I got hungry jacks and they gave me too much change back, I dont remember how old I was.

I do it a lot with newspapers and magazines. I tuck them under my arm so I can carry other things and then forget they are there. I always go back when I realise though

Yeah, DD stole a banana she insisted on holding during our grocery shopping.
And after DS was born I had him in the ergo, with DD in the shopping trolley, I unloaded the groceries, paid and left and then when I got to the car to unload I realised that I'd stolen a packet of pads. When I was unpacking at the checkout I must have missed them as I unloaded while looking over the ergo.
