A Hastings woman wrote a shopping-list of things she intended to steal on a shoplifting expedition to Masterton.
Arana Maude Hawea, 31, also stole in front of her daughter on two trips to a Hastings petrol station.
On their second visit, the 10-year-old filled her pockets with chocolate bars while her mother took a block of cheese and a bottle of cream.
Appearing in Hastings District Court yesterday, Hawea pleaded guilty to 13 charges of shoplifting.
Hawea targeted Hastings shops during the past four months, taking seafood, rubbish bags, a butane torch, extension lead and a red hoodie.
But most of the charges related to shoplifting in Masterton.
On August 31, Hawea stole more than $1100 worth of goods from six Masterton stores.
Louana Lee Mokoare, 32, who accompanied her, yesterday pleaded guilty to receiving stolen goods.
Judge Gregory Ross sentenced Mokoare to 100 hours' community work and disqualified her from driving for six months.
Hawea will be sentenced on October 31.
