3/50 Project

I’m totally happy to spread this idea around. The 3/50 Project focuses on local retail buying. By thinking about the three stores you love most and mentally agreeing to spend $50 a month there you can help support those businesses and help the economy a smidge. I balked at the $50 bit, but then I started to think about how much money I actually spend a month and how much of that goes to the big chain grocery stores and gas stations… $50 doesn’t seem like it’s so big anymore. I think at least making a concerted effort to shop in the smaller stores will always make a difference for you and for the shop owner.

Plus, this is a really beautiful little site and a simple concept. Why can’t everything be this pretty?
