Do you buy from kids' fund raisers?

When kids (other than your own) come selling door to door do you buy? I'm talking things like school or club fund raisers.

  • They don't go door to door here so there's always a personal connection. I buy if it's something I like. :)

  • Yep, almost always. I can remember selling stuff when I was a kid and how grateful I'd be when someone ordered.

  • I never have anyone come selling door to door. I don't always buy from my own kids. It's a constant thing. Right now it's GS cookies. We buy a ton. They just sold yankee candles and we bought. We sold candy at christmas, we didn't participate. The hockey team sold poinsettias - no, pies - no frozen pizza - no. and beauty supplies - no.I would be in the poor house if I always bought.
