although a challenge was issued in last week’s post, i want to run fast, not to fast food, THIS WEEK’S CHALLENGE is to shop local! make an effort this week to forgo big box/chain retailers and seek out locally owned businesses who provide the same products and/or services. make a trip to the mississippi farmer’s market to pick up locally grown produce, local honey and even locally roasted coffee. pick out a mississippi made gift for your friend at a local retailer. get out and meet the owners and put your dollars back into your local economy!
