    I'm happy to give to charities, and I do. But I admit, I am getting a little annoyed, I am getting calls most days - and when I get on the phone to a charity I find it really hard to say no, even though I can't really afford it. I feel guilted into giving money and I hate that.

    Same beebs, we also have no problem giving to charities. I do have a major problem with some of their underhanded tactics though.. including guilting people into giving.

    Easiest way to say no, is to just hang up on them. Hit the end call button on your phone and you won't have to tell them no.

    On the rare occasion, I get a phone call I just give them a sharp "no thank you I'm not interested" and hang up. If they knock on my front door, I don't let them get started on their spiel, I just say "not interested" and close the front door. At shopping centres, I don't make eye contact and walk straight past them. It might seem rude, but hey I'm not the one being guilted out of hundred's of dollars that I can't afford.

    It's not hard to say no.
