Go inside a store and wait until it closes. The shop keeper should disappear. Examine the shelves to remove the items.
Easy money hints:
-Go to a country where you never go to, then go to any bank in that country and borrow 250,000 coins. After that, go to another bank in a different country and repeat. If you go to that country again and want to repeat this, you have to repay the 275,000 coins to get another 250,000 coins.
-Break into a pawn shop, armory, or weapon smith and steal all the items. Place them on the ground or in your cart. Leave the shop, smith, or armory then reenter and repeat. Note: Do not drop the items if you do not intend to loiter. If you intend to go to an inn, your boat or house and sleep, don’t expect to see your dropped items.
Steal and sell:
Go inside a store and wait until night. When it is night, and the shop keeper is still there, examine the shelves to check what is in the store. To steal an item, make sure the side screen has the “Equip” option. Select the desired items and equip them. Then, approach the store keeper and click on him. This allows you to sell the items that were just stolen without being arrested.
If you plead “not guilty” and lie, you may earn reputation. It is possible to go from common citizen to respected just by committing murder and lying about it.
Free Daedric items:
It is possible to get free Daedric armor at the price of numerous guards. Any tavern that has an upstairs with twenty beds with chests at the end in a single room can give any piece of Daedric armor or weapons. A couple towns have them all over the Illiac Bay. When you find a tavern that has this kind of upstairs, save the game in the room and reload it. Check all the chests regardless if they want to know if you will go through private property. You might want to make a recall anchor outside the tavern if you do not wish to fight many guards. Note: This may not always work in every tavern. Make sure to save the game before checking the chests.
High-paying quests early on:
See Lord K’avar, Castle Sentinel, in the first door to the right. It is a small appreciated fact that his quests pay a lot better than others. At level 2, when the guilds or the average noble barely pay a hundred, he might give you sixteen hundred; at higher levels,
