Buying American is easy. I read a lot of articles on the subject and I am forever seeing comments such as “I can’t find anything made in this country!” Well, those people aren’t looking very hard or they haven’t visited my blog. Look on my blog roll for the list of Made in America websites and then visit them. You can find American made examples of virtually any product you might want. But to get the pump primed, I am going to start a new weekly feature titled “three for the week.” Each week I will give you three Made in American options for things we use everyday. So let’s get started.

Who doesn’t need batteries? Everything I have uses them: the myriad of remote controls I have, flashlights, and the new wireless mouse I just bought. There are lots of batteries made in the U.S.
Ace Hardware brand
There is a lot of U.S. made computer paper available. The Office Depot premium multipurpose paper is made in the U.S.as is Hammermill’s Premium Multipurpose.
Now that wasn’t so hard was it? Three things you use everyday, and all of them manufactured by members of our extended American family. Now get shopping!
