Any chance of sticking this for a while so it doesn't drop off the front page?

Wow Emma - did you put all of this together?  This is great!  I'm going to be doing this.  My sister and I have agreed that this year - instead of Christmas shopping for each of us and our families (we're all adults) - we will just have a nice get together and play games and spend time together instead of buying each other presents.  Her husband lost his job back in the summer & our business is down because of the economy, so it makes sense. 

I'm going to print our your information, and keep it with me.  I'm terminating my cable tv with Time-Warner & I'm going to be happy to tell them why - plus the fact that cable tv is mostly garbage these days.

Yeah, I was thinking maybe we could draw names and get a gag or keep it under a cheap amount.  That would be fun.  For me, just spending a couple of days with my family that I don't see very often, is the best gift.  We have had such good times just playing games, baking brownies and popping corn.  I would like to see a movement of Christians and conservatives that would just celebrate Christmas as the Birth of Christ, a religious holiday.  I think the whole Christmas Shopping thing has gotten out of hand, and now I see where Target is going to open on Thanksgiving Day!  Stop this ride - I want to get off!!!

Thank you, Emma, this is very helpful!

I've been doing this for a few years and come across new companies here and there that I decide not to support anymore.  Your lists are nice and helpful and a great resource :-)

I have an attachment.  Sorry I am having difficulty cutting and pasting.

33 total with some duplicates from your list.

Thought I was the only one doing this.

Thanks, Al! 

This list has been really helpful for me - I've been checking it when I make purchases.

I found a good alternative to google the other day, called duckduckgo.com
