I have a bit of a conundrum. I work at a small museum, in a tiny historic town, surrounded by privately owned small businesses. This is a dream come true for me; I enjoy using my lunch break to pop in to shops and say hello to the owners who are becoming friends and I truly believe in helping my small, local businesses as much as I can.
The kicker is, I also have a small budget.
And while my heart screams “Buy that $15 artisan sandwich!” my wallet says “If you want to make rent, go for the mass-produced sandwiches that are only $5.”
My question is, what are some ways to help support my small business community, when my budget is even smaller? -AmeliaJane
