Most of all the stuff we buy in the states is imported. I would love to have more stuff made by us in the us. However it can't be helped at all. I think shopping for lower priced items is fine with me as well.

Yes, and it will be a lot of savings right? I guess we could find in our own country what that imported goods could give. It's just the brand name that makes it expensive.
