Buy American August 1st – Sept. 1st

Written by NSR News

Buy American.  A movement is on for Americans to buy products made only in the USA for one month.  This includes food, clothes, household products, etc.  Take one room in your home and remove anything that is not from the USA.  What do you have left?  I have taken one room in my house and did this. Here are the before and after shots.

Simply look on the bottom of every product you buy, and if it says ‘Made in China ‘ or ‘PRC’ (and that now includes Hong Kong), simply choose another product, or none at all. You will be amazed at how dependent you are on Chinese products, and you will be equally amazed at what you can do without.

If 200 million Americans each refuse to buy just $20 of Chinese goods, that’s a billion dollar trade imbalance resolved in our favor…fast!! Most of the people who have been reading about this matter are planning on implementing this on Aug. 1st and continue it until Sept. 1st.

Remember, August 1st to Sept. 1st! START NOW. Tell everybody you know. Let’s show them that we are Americans and we will not be taken for granted. If you complete this challenge send me your success story.  We would love to have before and after photos and stories of the changes taking place in your home.
