There are many ways to save money on groceries, such as clipping coupons or buying generic brands in lieu of name brands. However, another way to cut costs is to skip the supermarket altogether to purchase locally grown food.
Often, the food you purchase will be high quality, organic and better for your health than processed foods. Plus, you'll support your local economy. While you may believe that buying locally produced food is difficult, the option is available to you at numerous locations.

Chesapeake Bay Candle never thought twice about offshoring its manufacturing when the company started 17 years ago. To make the product it wanted, each candle had to be handmade, and there was no cost effective way to do that in the United States.

How would you like to go shopping and find that everywhere you went, the label said "Made in the World" instead of "Made in China," "Made in India," "Made in USA" etc.? The label on products Americans purchase that names the country in which they are made may soon be gone. How could this be possible?

Seattle is leading a manufacturing recovery in the United States, Forbes reported Thursday.
U.S. factories have been expanding for more than 33 months, thanks in part to China's rising wages, intellectual property protection concerns and other issues, Forbes said. It ranked 65 metropolitan areas by recent growth trends, job growth over the past five and 10 years, and the manufacturing momentum.

ROBBINSVILLE, N.C.--Stanley Furniture Co. - is betting baby cribs are among the few things Americans will pay a hefty premium for just because they carry a "Made in the U.S.A." label.
The 88-year-old company recently shifted its crib manufacturing back to the U.S. from China, to a sprawling factory here that not long ago was earmarked for closure along with Stanley's other two domestic plants. Today, the Robbinsville factory is an oddity in an industry that has been abandoning the U.S. because of costs: It is growing and investing over $8 million in new machinery.

I cover demographic, social and economic trends around the world.
In this still tepid recovery, the biggest feel-good story has been the resurgence of American manufacturing. As industrial production has fallen in Europe and growth has slowed in China, U.S. factories have continued an expansion that has stretched on for over 33 months. In April, manufacturing growth was the strongest in 10 months.

Manufacturers probably received more orders in April and home sales rose, a sign the U.S. expansion is still on track, economists said before reports this week.
Factory bookings for long-lasting goods rose 0.3 percent last month after falling 3.9 percent in March, according to the median forecasts of 61 economists surveyed by Bloomberg News before a May 24 Commerce Department report. Other figures may show purchases of existing and new houses also climbed.
