How well do you shop and do you try to buy American?..... just read this email......
READ ALL THE WAY TO THE BOTTOM! LOTS OF GOOD INFO HERE!
Costco sells Goodyear wiper blades for almost half the price that you will pay on the outside and they are made in the U.S.A.
Read and do the following..
Unfortunately our politicians and top CEO's (GE etc) have pushed for trade to China and Mexico for years so Americans are now out of work. Did you know that there is no electric coffee maker made in the US and that the only kitchen appliances made in the US is Viking?
I didn't know Hallmark Cards are made in China! That is also why I don't buy cards at Hallmark 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 the blenders available on the Internet. Kitchen Aid is
made in the 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.
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 checked the hose attachments there. They were made in USA.
Start looking, people...In our current economic situation, every little thingwe 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". 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 60 W light bulbs, 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 the GE was made in Mexico and the 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.
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 neighbor's!
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?
