About Us
Made in America

This is so True ...

That is why I don't buy Hallmark Cards anymore. They
are made in China and are more expensive! I buy them at
Dollar Tree - 50 cents each and made in USA.

I have been looking at blenders available
on the Internet. Kitchen Aid is Made in US
Top of my list already ...

Yesterday I was in Wal Mart looking for a wastebasket.
I found some made in China for $6.99. I didn't want to pay that
much so I asked the lady if they had any others. She took me to
another department and they had some at $ 2.50 made in USA .
They are just as good. Same as a kitchen rug I needed. I had to
look, but I found some made in the USA - what a concept! -
and they were $3.00 cheaper .

We are being brainwashed to believe that
everything that comes from China and Mexico
is cheaper. Not so.

One Light Bulb at a Time...

I was in Lowe's the other day and just out
of curiosity, I looked at the hose attachments.
They were all made in China.The next day I was in Ace Hardware
and just for the heck of it I checked the hose attachments there.
They were made in USA

Start looking people. In our current economic situation,
every little thing we buy or do affects someone else - most often,
their job.

My grandson likes Hershey's candy. I noticed,
though, that it is now marked "made in Mexico."
I don't buy it anymore.

My favorite toothpaste Colgate is made in
Mexico... now I have switched to Crest.
You have to read the labels on everything.
This past weekend I was at Kroger... I needed
60W light bulbs and Bounce dryer sheets.
I was in the light bulb aisle, and right next to
the GE brand I normally buy - was an off-
brand labeled, "Everyday Value." I picked up
both types of bulbs and compared them: they
were the same except for the price...
the GE bulbs cost more than the Everyday Value brand,
but the thing that surprised me the most was that that
GE was made in MEXICO andthe Everyday Value brand
was made in - you guessed it -
the USA at a company in Cleveland, Ohio.

It's Way past time to start finding and buying
products you use every day that are made
right here.

So, on to the next aisle: Bounce Dryer Sheets...
yep, you guessed it, Bounce cost more money
and is made in Canada. The Everyday Value brand
cost less, and was MADE IN THE USA! I did laundry
yesterday and the dryer sheets performed just like the
Bounce Free I have been using for years, at almost
half the price.

My challenge to you is to start reading the
labels when you shop for everyday things
and see what you can find that is made in
the USA - the job you save may be your
own or your neighbors!

If you accept the challenge, pass this on to others in your
address book so we can all start buying American,
one light bulb at a time!

Stop buying from overseas companies -
you're sending the jobs there.
(We should have awakened a decade ago....)
Let's get with the program and help our
fellow Americans keep their jobs and
create more jobs here in the USA.
I passed this on ... will you?
