I buy most of my stuff at Wal-Mart and Sam's Club. They kick a percentage of my purchases back to my kid's school, so it helps pay her tuition and I get the groceries, supplies and whatnot I'm going to buy anyway. Yeah, I wish it wasn't such a crappy store, but the benefits of the place outweigh the drawbacks for us. And they have a lot of good, smart people working there (you just have to search for them sometimes).
How 'bout them Huskers!
