People have to be very conscientious for what they spend their money on, and it should only be for the best activities, including supporting only the best and someone's favorite businesses/companies/stores most of the time.

Everyone can contribute to the economy with beneficial actions and that also has a prominent direct correlation to Successful Urban Planning.

When someone supports their favorite stores, restaurants, cafe bars, supermarkets, etc. they actually help out with those businesses thriving and continuing to stay in that location, and this does collaterally influence this part of Urban Planning. This was already specific enough and pleasant clarification, but I could explain even further.

There is a connection that exists between People Supporting their Favorite Stores/Businesses/Companies To Urban Planning:Best Stores Being Part of a Community/Neighborhood/City Region.

For one example, what are your favorite stores, restaurants, café bars, supermarkets kind of businesses in the area you live in? Do you actively want to see your favorite places related to that stay in their current exact location forever, have those business owners thrive economically, and spending a bit extra money on those places to make sure those collection of stores continue to be successful and collaterally being part of the picture in Urban Planning.

For the cities/towns/neighborhoods I lived in and visited, I always have a lot of personal favorite stores/businesses.

Today I was in one of my favorite independent cafe bars that has a perfect ambience, plenty of seating tables, good neighborhood area, computer wifi. I spent $22 over there on restaurant meal, coffee, and dessert. I could have easily spent just $5, but I want to see places similar to this having a lot of character, soul, and image of cultural wealth getting a lot of money and support from customers. I also was there 8 hours, so I prefer to spend quite a bit of money in staying there for a significant good amount of time.

I also went to one of my favorite restaurants yesterday where I spent $20 even if I could have spent just $8. The food and visual design of the restaurant is so pleasant, places such as that deserve a lot of money from customers.

And people complain that Americans don't save enough money! Let's all spend MORE! You want lunch? Go out for dinner instead! Want one drink? Have 3!

Life is about so much more than just desperately saving money all the time and that is boring to always try to save money all the time.That is important to spend money for a good cause and for a lot of purpose and worthwhile activities.

I guess you can tell I have plenty of money and know very well to have fun and high quality entertainment for where I spend my money. I even realized a connection between Shopping to Urban Planning that I said in this topic.

You know I made a lot of sense for what I said before.

Don’t you want to support your favorite local places in your town area and how that can benefit the community you live in?

NO! I do 95% percent of all shopping and commercial transactions outside of the city I live in.

I support my local businesses to the extent possible, e.g. to the extent they can meet my needs. I will pay a little more for some things to buy locally, but I will not buy things I don't need/want to support local business.

I'm so glad you think you're so cool.

When I said the word local, I was also referring to generalized metropolitan region, city/town someone lives in and not necessarily exact neighborhood.

You probably commute less than 1 hour and 30 minutes away to where you frequently spend money.

If not, maybe you just shop a lot on websites such as amazon.com.

Its okay to spend some money on products over there. However, spending too much money there and not somewhere else really has the negative potential to deprive and interrupt the stores/businesses in a local area, and cause economic stagnation in too many stores/businesses in neighborhoods.

Well, there you go for proving the accuracy and value of this topic and finally saying something you do agree with when you said "I will pay a little more for some things to buy locally" and “I support my local businesses to the extent possible, e.g. to the extent they can meet my needs."
