Going shopping tomorrow?
Ask yourself what local, independe ntly owned businesses would you really miss if they disappeared and make sure to get into those stores tomorrow.
For every $100 you spend locally,
$68 stays in the local community. If you shop or eat at national chains, only
$43 stays in your community. If you shop on-line
nothing stays local, did you hear that? Nothing. Rather than suck up to the giant conglomerates drink from the fountain of pure and local and rest in the knowledge that almost $.70 of each dollar you spend will go back into your community.
I wrote about this in more detail a few days
ago and also here. P.S. Last year I wrote about
spending $100 locally. (So okay, maybe I did have this idea first.) But seriously, it’s pretty good. Read it. P.P.S. Obviously, this is geared toward Madison, but the same applies to any local economy. Just do it!
Let me know your three choices whether you are here locally in Madison or elsewhere! Ya'll, thanks for sharing.

I’m an overthinker and incessant seeker. I’m grateful for God’s grace. I write poetic thoughts and offer original photographs.
I hope you will stay and read for a while.
All photography and words are mine unless noted.

One thought on “Gonna catch some deals? Make them count.”
That sound’s so easy if you think about it.
