List Of Products Made In America, Made In Montana

Please do your part to buy products made in the U.S.A.

Finding those products isn’t as hard as it may seem – We just have to LOOK at where the stuff is made before we buy it!

Costco sells Goodyear wiper blades for almost half the price that you will pay on the outside and they are made in the U.S.A.

Unfortunately our politicians and CEO’s have pushed for trade to China and Mexico for years and, as a result, millions of Americans are now out of work. Did you know that there is no electric coffee maker made in the US and that the only kitchen appliances made in the US is Viking? Hopefully this has changed or will soon.

That is also why I don’t buy cards at Hallmark anymore, they are made in China and are more expensive! I buy them at Dollar Tree – 50 cents each and made in USA

I have been looking at the blenders available on the Internet. KitchenAid is MADE IN the USA. Top of my list already…

Yesterday I was in Walmart looking for a wastebasket. I found some made in China for $6.99. I didn’t want to pay that much so I asked the lady if they had any others. She took me to another department and they had some at $2.50 made in USA. They are just as good. Same as a kitchen rug I needed. I had to look, but I found some made in the USA and they were $3.00 cheaper.

We are being brainwashed to believe that everything that comes from China and Mexico is cheaper.  Not true.

I was in Lowe’s the other day and just out of curiosity, I looked at the hose attachments. They were all made in China. The next day I was in Ace Hardware and just for the heck of it I checked the hose attachments there, they were made in USA.

Start looking, people . . …In our current economic situation, every little thing we buy or do affects someone else – most often, their job..

My favorite toothpaste Colgate is made in Mexico…now I have switched to Crest.

You have to read the labels on everything.

This past weekend I was at Kroger .   I needed 60W light bulbs and Bounce dryer sheets.  I was in the light bulb aisle and right next to the GE brand I normally buy — was an off-brand labeled, “Everyday Value.” I picked up both types of bulbs and compared them: they were the same except for the price . . … the GE bulbs cost more than the Everyday Value brand. But the thing that surprised me the most was that that GE was made in MEXICO and the Everyday Value brand was made in – you guessed it – the USA at a company in Cleveland, Ohio.

So, on to the next aisle: Bounce Dryer Sheets… yep, you guessed it, Bounce cost more money and is made in Canada. The Everyday Value brand cost less, and was MADE IN THE USA! I did laundry yesterday and the dryer sheets performed just like the Bounce Free I have been using for years, at almost half the price.

My challenge to you is to start reading the labels when you shop for everyday things and see what you can find that is made in the USA – the job you save may be your own or your neighbor’s!

If you accept the challenge, pass this on to others in your address book so we can all start buying American, one light bulb at a time!

Stop buying from overseas companies – you’re sending the jobs there. (We should have awakened a decade ago….)

Let’s get with the program and help our fellow Americans keep their jobs and create more jobs here in the USA.


Will you make the commitment to buy products made in the U.S.A?  

Here’s a previous posting for websites that are devoted to American companies.  Use the links below to find companies near you.  I’ve found that, in some cases, links on these sites may no longer be valid…. sadly because those companies have been forced to shut down.  I wish we had one master list! There’s gotta be one somewhere!

Here’s a site that promotes products made here in Montana. Please check your own State government sites to see if they have something similar for your State and PLEASE SHARE that link here in the comment section for all to share!
I passed this on .. .. . will you??? If you care about American workers, you will pass it on.


Buy AMERICAN Project

Here’s a website that promotes American Made products.  I’ve shared a few of these sites with my readers and will continue to do so as I find sites that contain useful information.


Shopping for goods NOT made in China, Taiwan, Thailand is a challenge.  I hope this site, as well as the others I’ve shared here, are helpful in your quest.
