Do you buy American?

Just a curiosity question.

When you and/or your spouse go shopping do you buy American made products?

Life changes, so roll with it, not against it.

I usually keep that thought in mind, but I'm not a diligent as some people are.

Major purchases, most times yes. Kids, clothes, shoes, necessities of everyday life, not always.

If I see two identical items sitting next to each other and one says USA and the other says somewhere else I will buy the USA product (if the price is reasonable). There is no way to buy all American so I don't I don't even try.
