If you are anything like me you probably try to buy american made items. This is not the first time I have blogged about this subject but it means a lot to me.
I will not be showing sellers on OLA.COM that have items made in America as I have done that one already. I will be comparing what can be found by just looking on the same shelf or maybe in another store in the same town.
Walmart had a waste basket made in China for $6.99. I ask the clerk if they had any made in America and she took me to them. I got one for $2.50 with Made in USA on the bottom. Why it was in a different part of the store is unknown by the clerk.
I do not buy Hallmark cards anymore as they are made in China and are very expensive. I buy cards from the Dollar Store for $.50 cents each and they are made in USA
I was at Lowes in town and happened to remember I need a new hose attachment. They were all made in China so the next day I went to Ace Hardware in our town and there they were , cheaper and made in the USA
At the grocery store I also found bounce frabic softener sheets were made in China while the store brand was 1/2 the price, made in USA and worked just as well.
With the economy being what it is everything we buy or do affects someone else, maybe even someone's job.
So forget what is being said like "You just can't find anything made in America anymore". That isn't true as I have found a lot of items I us made in USA. You just have to look.
My challenge to you is to look at labels and see what you can find made in America. The more we buy from USA companies the more jobs we will be helping to save.
Please either come here and blog and brag about your finds. If you do not want to do that you can go to my ola store and tell me, http://ola.com/store/chateycathey or you can omail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will keep track and report here in the future.
Thanks for reading my blog and I will be watching my email or this blog for responces. If sending an email please put American made challenge in the subject line.
