Putting Money into Local Businesses

I just read a wonderful post at Moms Need to Know. The article How Frugal Should You Be These Days? questions the effect of hoarding on the economy. Mindi reminds her readers that spending money is the only way to keep the economy from totally tanking, and she specifically mentions spending money at local businesses. This summer we will be putting down flooring, and while we were originally planning to get it done by Home Depot, I'm now going to look into finding a local company to do the job.

I'm trying to think of other ways to help local businesses. I have to admit that I probably overlook at lot of them because I have so many "big name" stores in my area. I'd love to know some of the items and services that you buy from local stores/businesses.
