The 3/50 Project (or how to save local economies)

This morning, as part of my morning stroll on the way to the office, I ran into an unusual sign: one that asked me expressly to commit to spend at least $50 each month in independently owned stores to help save my local economy. It turns out this poster was not a stand-alone thing: it was part of a bigger movement, the 3/50 Project!

  1. I try to use local stores wherever I can. Especially local hardware stores, their prices are about the same as super-sized stores and they have people eager to help and knowledgeable. Same is true for local bookstores. Both are in danger of extinction.
