Buy Local

The 3/50 Project is another great idea.  A simple idea.  I have to say that I need to work on this.  I have a habit of running to the nearest, fastest solution which is usually a national chain; for a sandwich, for groceries, for certain commonly, repeatedly purchased necessities. Chains are successful because they've invested in locations, they've studied purchasing patterns, they've under-priced and over-marketed the market so that little local businesses are less attractive.  But, we still don't have to shop there.  

Visit The 3/50 Project, read their pages. Just this little change in shopping will make a difference.

And, do a search on our site in your county and see what you find.  There are a lot of really great local businesses to take care of your shopping needs.

Thank you.
