Costco sells Goodyear wiper blades for almost Half the price that you Will pay elsewhere, and they are made in the U.S.A.
There is no Electric coffee maker made in the US and The only kitchen appliance maker in the US is Viking? I Don't buy cards at Hallmark anymore,because They are Made in China and are More expensive! I buy them at the Dollar General or Family Dollar, when made in USA, usually for 50 cents.
I have Been looking at blenders available on the Internet.
Kitchen Aid is MADE IN The US.
In WalMart,I found some Made In China for $6.99. I didn't
want to pay that much, so I Asked The lady if they had any others.
She took me to another department. They had some at $2.50 made in USA . They are Just as good. Same As a kitchen Rug I needed. I had to look, but I found USA made - and they were $3.00 cheaper.
Everything that comes from China and Mexico is not cheaper..
I was in Lowe's the other day. Just out of curiosity, I looked at the hose attachments.... all Made in China . The next day, I was
In Ace Hardware and checked the hose attachments...yep, USA made i
My Grandson likes Hershey's candy. I noticed, though, that it is Now Marked "made in Mexico ." I Don't buy it anymore.
My Favorite Colgate is made in Mexico. I've Switched to Crest.
I was at Kroger. I needed 60W light bulbs and Bounce dryer sheets
In the light bulb aisle, right next to the GE brand I normally buy was an off-brand "Everyday Value." I compared bulbs, and they were the same Except For the price ...the GE bulbs
Cost more than the Everyday Value Brand, but the thing that surprised me the most was that GE was Made in MEXICO. The Everyday Value brand was made in - you guessed It - USA in Cleveland, Ohio .
On to the next aisle: Bounce Dryer Sheets... Yep, Bounce cost more money and is made in Canada. Everyday Value Brand cost less and was MADE IN THE USA ! I did laundry yesterday. The dryer sheets
performed just like the Bounce, at almost half the Price.
Our simple challenge---read the labels when we shop for
is Made In the USA -
