I've tried the local chapter, but gave up after a few weeks because of the constant begging. Crap like, "Two free pairs of used sneakers to give away, and BTW, I so desperately need a car. Anything 1996 or newer would be most appreciated!" Or begging for a free TV (27" or larger), or similar crap. A never-ending stream of hard-luck stories begging for handouts, which is a blatant violation of what the lists are supposed to be about. Tried complaining to the mods, but no joy there so I bailed.
You forgot one major expense: regular voiding of milk from Teddy's man-breasts. It ain't like you can sell it like you do when you milk the cow. All the work, none of the benefit.
