We all know it’s a good thing, but we all need to be reminded. We are such a convenience-based society that we forget about the local businesses and organizations right in our own backyard, and go straight to the big boxes. We recently realized that we could be getting office supplies delivered straight to our door by a local company, instead of taking the time to go to a chain store and dragging all the stuff back to the office. So local can be more convenient! There are so many amazing small businesses and non-profits in our area. Let’s try to remember to utilize and support them as much as possible.

Do it. Do it. Do it. Do it.
