Local Shopping

OK - I've been on this shopping/giving kick lately, and I would like to lift up one more. There is a relatively new think tank in Minnesota, called Minnesota 2020. They are trying to move us into a safer, healthier, and more stable future. They are pretty progressive. Last year, they put out a "local" shopping guide. Of course, if you don't live in MN, this isn't all that local. I'm assuming that you can find your own version of this wherever you live.

I commend to you, the Minnesota 2020 Made in Minnesota Holiday Shopping Guide.

Remember, the more money you spend on locally made products, and sold at locally made retailers will help your local economy. That money usually circulates six times around a local economy. If you feel you must buy things instead of giving, this is a great way to go.
