Update: Buying local saved lots



Remember that recycled juice box handbag I was bragging about?

Please permit me to boast again.

As I shopped at Macy's this weekend with a fistful of coupons, a cluster of colorful woven purses caught my eye. They looked a lot like mine (except not as cute). But get this: The bag that was about the same size as the one I bought from Tampa-based was FOUR TIMES more expensive. That sucker cost $140! (Mine was $34.)

Suddenly, I love my new purse even more.
