Do you ever purchase any generic items?

Is there anything you must have the name brand of?

Are there any generics you consider to be just as good or better than the name brand?

I purchase the store brand (Target or Meijer) often....for various things...There are some foods I tend to buy the name brand of...but nothing is really standing out right now.


ETA: In my experience, the Meijer and Target brand diapers were bad...I tended to have to change them much more frequently. I only buy Huggies diapers now.

Do you ever purchase any generic items? yes for things like sugar, flour etc.

Is there anything you must have the name brand of? Almost everything, things like cheap dish soap get on my nerves. Yeah it may have been cheaper but its so watery and doesn't lather up so you have to use more and run out more quickly.

Are there any generics you consider to be just as good or better than the name brand? Yes there are a few generics I enjoy like various store brand gourmet cookies and wal-marts brand of lavender body oil.

We tend to purchase more generic brands than name brand, since it can help save you a dollar or so... Every penny saved counts!

I buy store brand milk and some other basic foods. But if I'm entertaining, I always buy name brand ingredients.

The one exception I've found is our store brand salsa. It is so fresh and tastes 10 times better than anything I've ever tasted in a jar.
