Made in America in the Home

ABC's World News is doing an interesting experiment that I just heard about yesterday. Armed with the knowledge that if each of us spent just over $3 on products made in America it would create 10,000 jobs, they are challenging themselves to completely outfit an entire home with items made only in the USA:

Will it be more costly than furnishing a home with imports? Will an entire house be able to be outfitted with domestic goods? See the trailer for the challenge at ABC and follow the experiment over the next several weeks.

While we're on the subject, to what extent do you go to buy domestic for your home? Do you prefer imports for some goods and why? I, for one, can say I don't give the subject just attention when it comes to buying American for my own home. Let's talk more about it in the comments below.
