Go local
When you buy from local businesses, restaurants, or farmers, your money is likely to stay here in Oklahoma.  Unlike large corporations, local business owners usually spend their money here instead of sending it out of state.  This means that spending money locally "multiplies" the effect of your dollar, making it more likely that it might end up back in your pocket someday.
