I first started this journey with food (yum!). How about checking out local farmer's markets instead of our regular supermarket? Make sure you have time to research the things offered in different markets. They may have a website where you can see what local products are available in season. If local restaurants can do it, why can't we? You can also buy things in bulk, if you go through a specific fruit or vegetable really quickly. Plus, it's fun to bring your kids with you so they can choose what they'd like to try.

Forget the music on the radio. Try finding local music in your area. You may not realize how much variety there is just in your area. You can most definitely find live local music at your local restaurant.
Where can you find this information about all the local places in your area? Now with more access to the internet, you can google websites catered to your area. I usually look at Creative Loafing for local information. Livingsocial and Groupon also shares local events and businesses in your area to try, and they give discounts too!
