To All Americans... Very interesting - Buy American!
Costco sells Goodyear wiper blades for almost half the price that you will pay
on the outside and they are made in the USA .
Did you know that there is no electric coffee maker made in the USA and that the
only kitchen appliances made in the USA are Viking?
I didn't know Hallmark cards were made in China . That is also why I don't buy
cards at Hallmark anymore; they are made in China and 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 the USA . Top of my list already!!!!
Yesterday, I was in Wal-Mart looking for a waste basket. 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
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 the USA .
Smart 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 60 watt light bulbs and
Bounce dryer sheets. Right next to the GE brand that 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 the price. The GE bulbs cost more than the
Everyday Value brand but the thing that surprised me the most was that the GE
was made in Mexico and the Everyday Value brand was made in, you guessed it, a
company in Cleveland , Ohio , USA .
