I really enjoyed reading Shop Local and recommend it to anyone who is looking for inspiration on how they can support their community. Heidi's straightforward and easy-to-follow tips for shifting our spending towards more local businesses has made me more aware of my own habits and the simple steps I can take to feel good about where I spend my money.

Shop Local: A Practical Pain Free Guide to Shopping with Purpose, by Heidi Butzine, explains the benefits of shopping through your locally owned, smaller businesses opposed to shopping at the large corporation companies like Wal-Mart. The author not only explains why you should shop locally, but tips on how to do so. By shopping locally, you are boosting the economy for your community as well as help these small, local businesses that are struggling in today's world. Small business used to florish until people wanted convenience, and then large corporate companies like Wal-Mart or even Costco put all of the consumers needs not only in one store, but in bulk. This hurt smaller businesses, and today many of them end up going under! I found the topic of this book to be very interesting. I myself tend to shop local whenever possible, especially when it comes to food. I found myself relating to the author's belief's all throughout reading the book. I would highly recommend this book to anyone, as I feel that it is important that awareness is raised on this topic. I would definitely read more from this author in the future.

Shop Local by Heidi Butzine is quite enlightening short read that this very informative in regards to shopping local and feeding money directly back into the community. Shop Local opens my eyes and hopefully others in why it is important to shop local. Not only does Butzine give us the reasoning for shopping local, she also provides statistics to back up her claim on how shopping local directly affects the community in which we live. No she does go hard on big corporations throughout the book but this only reinforces her points on the benefits of shopping local. As Heidi implies we need to really support our community, by doing so we support our immediate economy as well. Shop Local is not only full of statistics it has a lot of nice graphics, charts and pull outs sporadically placed in some of its chapters. I believe this helped move the information along; when Butzine made reading for lack of better words interactive. As I will not implement all of her recommendations I am quite thankful that she laid quite a few instructions on how to shop local while not breaking the bank to do so.

Reminder to be a responsible citizen. Never before did I think much about where I shopped and how I spent my money. After reading Shop Local, I know have a much better awareness about how much my spending choices matter.
