Hate it. I don't even like the Boy Scout popcorn or the Girl Scout peanut/cookies. It is the parent that does the selling. We too are a one income family. The stuff they sell is too $$$$. When I was a GS leader we tried a soup supper. The idea was for the kids to donate and help with the cooking. Ha. Myself and one other mom did almost all the work, none of the girls showed up, most of the food the girls signed up to bring didn't show up. But we made good money for the troop. I refused to do it again and neither would anyone else. Just a joke. I don't mind the car washes or bake sales. I really feel we should be teaching our kids to try to get by on less not always the need for more and more money and things.
Don't stay were you are tolerated, go where you are celebrated!
