The 3/50 Project- Pick 3, spend $50, save your local economy

Last week while walking home from a birthday party, I stopped to look in the window of Nest, one of my favorite interior stores.  In the window they had a flyer for The 3/50 project, an initiative created by Cinda Baxter of Always Upward.  Her concept, commit to spending $50 each month at three local independent stores.  The facts speak for themselves and remind me that together we can have a tremendous impact on our economy.  This month my picks are Nest, Three Tarts and Billy's Bakery.  What are yours?
