Each time you shop, add fifteen minutes to your planned grocery shopping time. Look for products, add these to your list of brands to buy, and use this list in the future. In the produce aisle, look for signs stating that the produce is a Product of the USA.

When shopping in your office supply store, look for tape, envelopes, paper, etc., which have been manufactured in this country, by our citizens.

Check health and beauty aisles for band-aids, toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, makeup, etc. that have been manufactured in our country. Look on your over the counter drug labels to see where they were made. Also, ask the pharmacist where your prescription drugs were manufactured.

Shop home and garden stores, and compare labels there, too. With a little bit of extra effort, you can find the item(s) you need that have been made in the USA. If building materials are not marked, ask the store manager to look up where the product was made.

Actually many countries are impoorting US goods due to the low USD. I just purchased a pair of leather shoes made in US.

It is really amazing when you start to look at the tags on things. Almost everything you find says Made in China. In my youth everything said Made in Japan! I remember when the first "Foreign" cars (other than Volkswagen and Volvo) came into competition here in the US. Now look around and see what's happened to Made in USA. You're right here. We need to support our own industries to help restore our economy!

Anytime I see a Made In USA on a product that counts for a lot. I even try to narrow that down and try to find more local or regional items.

Interesting article! What about Gas?

Gas, like many other products used in the USA, comes from other countries. We need to find a way for the USA to become sustainable. In turn, jobs for research and development of our resources will help our citizens and our economy.
