When you go shopping, do you buy the cheap store brand or do you have to have the name brand?

Yeah, I don't really care wither. With groceries, I have to have name brand cereal and detergent, but that it's it. Everything else can be the cheap brand.

I do both. I think it depends on what it is and sometimes even the mood I am in.

It depends, we buy name brand baked beans, tuna fish, laundry soap and a few other things. Besides for that, unless it is on sale we buy store brands.

I'm not too picky and like to save money so I guess it usually just depends on what I'm buying.

It depends - most things I can deal with the store brand but for soaps, detergents and cereal it's ususally brand name.

Grocery shopping.. I can do store brands...

If I'm after underwear thats nothing special and regular ole tshirts..I can do walmart or target....

If I'm going highend shopping.. i'm only going to spend the extra money on something that has my fav brand basically plastered on it because that's basically all you're paying for is the name..
I'm not going to go to neman marcus and buy a plain white tshirt for 80 bucks just for the tag..

I usually spend the extra bucks on my fav shoes or jeans or purses.. everything else I can basically get anywhere..(Oooh I told me secret passion)

Aside from a few products that I insist on certain brand names, I usually buy store brand. But I will get a store-brand if it's on a good sale (like buy-one-get-one-free, so stocking up makes it cheaper than store brand).

I probably do a little of both. I'm a terrible grocery shopper. I spend anywhere from 150 to 250 a week to a week and a half on groceries and it seems like we never have the right things.

I buy both. There are just some things we have to have brand name in and others we don't really care either way!
