buy local.

I don't remember where I first heard about this idea, but I think it's great. The idea is that you support 3 locally owned independent businesses by spending $50 with each of them in one month's time. And you do that every month (if you can). It can be the same businesses every month or different ones. My husband and I prefer to dine out at local restaurants here in New Orleans – Parkway Bakery, Camellia Grill and Joey K's have been some of our favorites lately. I've also picked up a couple of great gifts at local shops such as Mignon, Agora and Magic Box Toys. Try it yourself in your own neighborhood. For more info, visit the 3/50 project's website.
