Pick 3. Spend 50. Save your Local Economy...The 3/50 project

Reblogger Debbie Walsh
Real Estate Agent with Shahar Management

 

This is so important!  As independently owned businesses around us are closing one by one we need to do something to help.  Please go out and frequent our small business owners and do what you can to help!

 

Original content by Michael A. Caruso

PLEASE, support YOUR local economy! 

The idea is to commit $50 each month to locally owned businesses. Maybe that means rethinking where you currently invest your money, opting to pick up that birthday card or pair of jeans in a locally owned business instead of the big box you’ve been going to. Or maybe it means eating out once a month because you realize slamming the brakes on all spending stalls economic recovery. And it means not shopping online, 99.99999% of online sales generate nothing for the community you live in. It’s just that simple.

Happy Birthday Debra.  A little birdy told us all. Quite the party line here at AR.  Now how that birdy found out your birthdate I have no clue.  Hmmm.  Maybe we have a Magnum P.I. amongst us.
