How to read bar codes
THE ECONOMY IS ROUGH BUT AMERICANS CAN HELP THE SITUATION IN NOT ONLY GROCERIES BUT ANY PRODUCT WITH A UPC BAR CODE.
YOU CAN SAVE AS WELL AS HELPING YOUR FELLOW CITIZENS.
You may already know this, but if not, it’s good info.
I Thought you could use a God hug.
It’s on you, Sis
IN 9 MINUTES SOMETHING WILL MAKE YOU HAPPY,
BUT YOU HAVE TO TELL 9 SISTERS YOU LOVE THEM INCLUDING ME!!!!
Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit
the ground each morning the devil says,
"OH CRAP, SHE’S UP"! .
This may be useful to know when grocery shopping, if it’s a concern to you.
The whole world is afraid of China-made "black hearted goods".
Can you differentiate which one is made in Taiwan or China ?
If the first 3 digits of the barcode are 690, 691 or 692, the product is MADE IN CHINA.
471 is Made in Taiwan .
This is our right to know, but the government and related departments never educate the public, therefore we have to RESCUE ourselves.
Nowadays, Chinese businessmen know that consumers do not prefer products "MADE IN CHINA ", so they don’t show from which country it is made.
However, you may now refer to the barcode, remember if the first 3 digits are:
690 – 692 then it is MADE IN CHINA .
00 – 09 USA & CANADA
30 – 37 FRANCE
40 – 44 GERMANY
47 – TAIWAN
49 – JAPAN
50 – UK
BUY USA by watching for "0" at the beginning of the number. We need every boost we can get!
In our current economic situation, every little thing we buy or do affects someone else and perhaps even their job.
My grandson likes Hershey’s candy. It is marked made in Mexico . I do not buy it any more. 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 the stats – they were the same except for the price. The GE bulbs were more money than the Everyday Value brand but the thing that surprised me the most was the fact that GE was made in MEXICO and the Everyday Value brand was made in – get ready for this – the USA in a company in Cleveland , Ohio .
So throw out the myth that you cannot find products you use every day that are made right here..
So on to another aisle – Bounce Dryer Sheets….yep, you guessed it, Bounce cost more money and is made in Canada . The Everyday Value brand was less money and MADE IN THE USA! I did laundry yesterday and the dryer sheets performed just like the Bounce Free I have been using for years and at almost half the price!
So 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, a member of your family or one of your friends!
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 China …
(We should have awakened to this a decade ago…)
Let’s get with the program…. help our fellow Americans keep their jobs and create more jobs here in the USA !!
If we buy American and expand our manufacturing base, we create more taxpayers and don’t have to beg for money (our money) from red communist china. MB
