Ever since I became interested in buying consumer goods made by members of my extended American family, I have discussed the issue with friends and family. I often get the comment, “yeah, I would like to buy more goods made here in America, but there really isn’t much made in the country anymore, is there?” The comment is understandable given the massive infusion of foreign goods into this country; just last year we imported $364 billion dollars of goods from China. But the reality is that there are a myriad of great firms in this country producing almost anything you could possibly need to buy. But where do find these firms? Follow me.
I have come to believe that the leader of the pack in made in the U.S. websites is americansworking.com. David Riley and Sarah Harris created the website for the same reason I am writing my book and this blog: to convince people that buying products made by Americans is a good idea. While in some instances U.S. products may cost more than an imported product, the U.S. product is a twofer. You get the utility and quality of the U.S. made product and you also help provide a job for a member of your extended American family.
Americansworking.com is a great website because it is so easy to use. There are several ways to find the American made product you want. First, the website has an A-Z list that just lets you find the U.S. made product you want by clicking on the first letter of the product. For example, if you click on T, you get a list of U.S. made table linens, tape measures, tiles, toothbrushes, towels and tick removal tools. Boy, I have been looking for a good tick removal tool for years. Second, the website also lists U.S. made products by product category. Finally, the website also allows you to find U.S. made products made close to home with its “State by State” listing feature.
So the next time you need an American made tick removal tool or anything else you could possibly imagine, just visit americansworking.com. You will get what you want and you will be supporting members of your extended American family! Get shopping!
