Barbara Todaro - I think it's important for everyone to be mindful of these lists, and most important to assist people in need, such as elderly people who live alone or teens that go off to college.

That is an extensive list and everyone should make sure they check it.  With regard to licenses, association dues, etc., they all seem to remind me that they need more money from me, haha.
