Keep The Money Close To Home

This video offers a simple summary of reasons why it is important to spend our money locally.

The money, the jobs and the taxes stay close to home instead of evaporating, and that benefits the community. Relationships are built.

When you buy a book at a local bookstore, indeed you might pay $2 more than getting it from a chain. But you are supporting an all local staff, and all the money they spend to run the business is spent locally. The marketing budget is spent locally, so the local newspaper benefits. The local accountant benefits. The cleaning service is local.

It is good to think about how those extra $2 spent benefit your neighborhood many, many times over.
