Forgot to mention: there will be very select exclusive special unique amazing prizes offered to the winners (note there will be multiple winners). Scoring system coming soon – for now, just save your receipts and a description of your purchases.
I’m taking the “where does your money go” challenge today and tracking where my dollars are going: the countries, the corporations, and the people. Of course, it’s not an exact science nor is it meant to be. Some stuff will fall through the cracks: my oatmeal was purchased at Bean & Bean, so I’ll give points to the good old U S of A; the bananas, strawberries and blueberries might not be from here but I’m not getting into that level of detail. I may, however, now thinking about it, be inspired to call B&B to confirm origin of the oats and trail of the fruit. But I’m not gonna go crazy over it.
QUESTION: will you take this challenge with me and post your results? It doesn’t have to be today. It can be any day. Think of it as a Christmas gift to all your countrymen and women whose job you may help save by getting us all to be a little conscientious about where our money goes. Where does your money go? Go ahead … gimme the dirt!
