The National Retail Federation just released the list of the most shoplifted items in the U.S. last year, and apparently we Americans like to party and have sex, we’re materialistic, we’re vain, and we’re chubby. Overall, 96% of the 125 companies surveyed by the NRF say they were a victim of major retail crime in the past year.

Here are the most stolen items, broken down by their major categories:

Grocery.  Cigarettes, energy drinks, expensive liquor . . . and baby formula.

Pharmacy.  Allergy medicine, diabetic testing strips, pain relievers, and weight loss pills.

Health and Beauty.  Electric toothbrushes, lotions and creams, and pregnancy tests.

Clothing.  Designer jeans, designer clothing, handbags.

Electronics.  Cell phones, digital cameras, GPS devices, laptops, TVs.

Home.  Expensive vacuum cleaners, KitchenAid mixers.
