    Yep, Target (the store) understands those of us who prep. Just look at their stocking stuffer section!

    I was just in Target Friday night. I didn't see the green beans in the stocking stuffer section ;), but they did have those mini LED flashlights for $1. I grabbed a bunch of those.

    I personally refuse to ever shop at Target. As a Marine I know that Target refuses to allow Marines to set-up a "Toys-for-Tots" box at Christmas times. Target is great for supporting LGTB and other liberal organizations. That is not the type of business that want to support.

    Just my two cents worth.

    Wasn't that long ago they were refusing to allow the salvation army and a couple of other charities from collecting donations at Christmas. They'll probably do it again this year.

    I only spend money there if I can't find an item elsewhere.

    Me too.

    As much as I hate to say it, I will not buy Girl Scout cookies, either. I will ask the den mother if she will keep a donation -- all of it -- strictly local, and if she agrees, I'll donate, but I will not send a red cent to the national organization. The GS leaders at the national level are, IMHO, despicable.

    Just for the sake of disclosure, I didn't take that pic and I don't shop at Target either. I keep my money local whenever possible and we are blessed to have a Target-like store in my community (locally owned chain store). The prices are a little higher and the selection is smaller than your average Walmart or Target, but the owners live here in town and they support the community. What I don't buy online I buy there whenever possible.

    I don't buy girl scout cookies, boy scout popcorn, tickets, cards, wreaths, magazines or anything else. We keep an envelope full of $5 bills and a receipt book by the front door. If anyone comes with an honest pitch and I am willing to support the cause I collect their names and personal info, write it on a receipt, have them sign it and then I donate $5-15 to their local cause / unit / group. From time to time I will call the leadership and make sure the money made it in to their coffers. I have been told more than once that my $5 donation was more profit than they normally make from a $30 sale.

    Well as someone who was super active in the Boy Scouts i have to agree. I once was sent to the council execs house for a recruitment pitch. I found out the guy made 180.000.00 a year. That was 10 years ago. Thats a lot of money for a non-profit. I was making $150 a week at camp to teach the kids citizenship skills. I was interested in the Egyptian art work he had on his wall, art work he had got on last years trip to Egypt. A couple years latter my wife brought me back some when the army sent her there, cost next to nothing in american outside of the costly upscale joints, take that rich boy. One group I was in had to set up a shawdow group because national said we wernt allowed to keep our own money, we had to go through the local council. The camp I worked at also had a shawdow group so that donations to it could stay there and not go to national. So Sentrys right.

    Sorry - but your wording is a little harsh there. Some of my good friends are very quiet about their sexual-orientation because of comments like that ...

    Well Crap! I really need to verify this new information on Target, but I can't find anything relating to it online. If I do, I'll also inform all my (both) friends about it.
    No different than me helping dozens close their Bank of America accounts forever over their anti - 2nd amendment policies.
    As in that case, I'd be sending a letter to their corporate offices, just to say Hi & what for....
