Made in the U.S.A. – Scotch Tape

3M Scotch Magic Tape

Not all tape is made in the U.S.A., but 3M Scotch Magic Tape is.

It is currently on sale at Wal-Mart for $.75, along with other back-to-school supplies, which makes it a good time to stock up for all the gift wrapping this Christmas.

There are other generic tapes that are made elsewhere and are cheaper, but if more Americans were willing to spend a little bit more, then maybe we could save more American jobs.

I’m thinking about this a lot, since my husband has told twice in the last week that some of the people at his place of work have been laid off.

Please, buy American whenever you can.

Made in the U.S.A. – Dusting Powder Update

Update on the dusting powder:

While we were out this weekend, I looked again at Walgreen for dusting powder. They have Jean Nate and a few designer perfume boxes – all more than I wanted to pay. The clerk and I commiserated with each other about the dearth of the selection.

Good old Wal-Mart.

Spring Fresh Dusting Powder, Lavender scented

$1.68 and that includes a puff.
