Day 6 of USA in a day

Day #6

Intro: I am on a hunt for things in my home that are made in the USA.
Each day I will try to post an item or two from my house.
Why? To support companies that are in my country.
Take a second and look at the product or item you are using and see where it is made.


This week I have been hanging paper shamrocks on our windows in celebration of Saint Patrick's Day. Although the paper shamrocks are not made in USA, (I'll have to research for a company) the tape, however is made in USA. 

Each floor of our house has a Scotch tape dispenser in a desk or drawer that I use weekly. I know, how much tape can we use? It's not one of those things I think about!  Anyway, one year my mom gave my sister and I a Scotch tape dispenser like one would keep on their desk. I found it so handy I bought one for the kids and the kitchen.

I wonder if 3M gives tours?

We have a wrapping counter in the basement and at Christmas time if two people are wrapping gifts we don't have to share the tape since I have a couple dispensers on the counter. It makes the wrapping task a bit faster.

I buy one brand of tape, no exceptions. Scotch brand tape made by Minnesota, Mining and Manufacturing company. The company is better known as 3M. I have an old tin of my grandmother's that housed tape and a newer commemorative tin that I keep a spare roll of tape inside.



What is your favorite brand of tape, and where is it made?

    1. I know, I think so much is made elsewhere that I don't even think about where stuff is made.

  6. People say that nothing is made in the USA anymore, but isn't it amazing what you do find once you start checking those labels? I bet you'll only buy Scotch brand from now on... why not? I LOVE that you are doing this series. We'll keep an eye out, but use #MadeinUSA and #USAlove to share it with the entire community of sites looking out for American made. -Sarah (USAlovelist.com)
