    About 10 days ago I ordered a bunch of components, including 40 bags of mag. shot. At the time I ordered it, the shot price was $31.50 including tax and shipping, but the price was not guaranteed. The shot arrived today at $28.50.

    I saved $3 X 40 = $120. I rounded $120 to $100 and wrote a check to the Salvation Army. The person selling the shot is happy, I am happy, the Salvation Army will be happy, and someone who the Salvation Army helps will be happy. Merry Christmas.

    PS- The $100 donation is deductible so it will only cost me about $50. The IRS will not be happy but they are not on my Christmas list.

    Good for you, Pat. The salvation Army is on the top of the list as far as decent charities go.

    There are many not so decent, I prefer to help the Sal any way I can.

    I bring stuff to their thrift store instead of Goodwill. Also free service on their sound system.

    Anyone who can help this worthy organization should.

    Good work, Pat, and a good reminder that we should all give what we can to the SA, particularly at this time of the year,

    rwm12- Add up the IRS tax, Social Security (remember you pay all of that), Self Employment Tax, State Income Tax and you will find that 50% tax is very common.
