Have you all heard about the 3/50 project? This is a practical and doable way to return business to local businesses and communities. My family and I do this where we live. Maybe if your area hasn't heard of it, you could get it started!

Thank you for posting this! I downloaded the LookLocal app. I'm always wanting to patronize independent businesses, but it can be hard to find them. This should help!

What a great concept. I know I 'should' buy from independents to support my town and other local areas I shop in; doing it is another thing. I WILL make a better effort to do this in the future. Just another behavioral change, right?
