Pick 3; Spend 50

untitled-82 

It has been a great experience meeting the owners of the small boutiques and toy stores throughout California.  Some of these exceptional entrepreneurs have been in business for 50+ years.  Starting a business myself, I now know well what an accomplishment that is.  It is fun to see the differences in these small stores.  Owners and managers of these small establishments take so much pride in carefully selecting and displaying products they feel their customers will love, each store reflects the personalities of the business people behind them.  

So when I heard about the 3/50 project, I wanted to spread the word.  Think of 3 independently owned businesses you wouldn’t want to live without, and make an effort to spend $50 dollars a month in those locally owned stores.  The icing on the cake?  Knowing more of your dollars are staying in your local community through taxes, payroll and other expenditures.

You can find out more about this project at http://the350project.net/home.html.

Want to help spread the word?  Forward this blog post or the 3/50 link to a couple of friends.  Working together and helping each other will get us all through these times quicker and easier.  Happy Shopping!
