Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:

  • We have tons of content. In fact, since November 2011, I've published more than 26,000 posts on thousands of different business ideas and opportunities.
  • We don't sell much advertising. In late 2013, I realized that by selling advertising, what I was really selling was my readers. In 2014, I've already radically cut down on the number of ads and will hopefully keep cutting.

Marlene Alexander takes an interesting look at items “Made in the USA” over at WalletPop.

If you’re not a regular dollar store shopper, you might be surprised to learn that there are many items in store that were not made in China.

In one short visit, I found many products that were made in America, passing over any item with the phrase “distributed by” prefacing a U.S. company and choosing only the ones that declared themselves to be manufactured by an American company in a U.S. state.

I’m not going to comment on quality here, because the whole idea is to refute the myth that all dollar stores sell is “junk from China.” I picked out more than 26 “Made in America” items at random on a recent visit to my local dollar store and only just scratched the surface.
