Buy USA: Shop 2nd-hand stores

During this time we are looking for ways to save money. If we are spending consciously, then make our money count. Let’s all buy American.

However, buying stuff from other countries found at mega-retail shopping centers seems cheaper than locally owned stores. Let’s give local stores a chance to get our business, regardless.

If you’re still worried about costs, consider local non-profit thrift stores, consignment shops, and other various second-hand sales.

Even if the original item sold there came from overseas, once it’s resold, all the money stays here.

Before you go to the dollar store, visit The Salvation Army, One Roof and others.
