  • It depends. Sometimes I do prefer name Heniz, Huggies, Johnson & Johnson, Gain or Tide, etc. But things like Tylenol, baby wipes/powder, soaps & shampoos, stuff like that I can normally go with generic.

  • I'll pretty much get store brand anything.. except eggs & mayo. I've had bad experiences with both.

  • I buy both, there are some things we just won't give up the name brands of because the store brands are too different tasting/don't work as well.

  • I get name brand baby stuff because the store brand didn't preform like i wanted it to. I buy mostly name brand food but that's only because we buy organic foods and they don't make store brand organic. but medicine and things like that (except feminie products) i'll buy store brand my clothes are name brand but I buy them all at name discount department stores on clearance (the pants i'm wearing right now were $2.50 thats so awesome!)

  • Yeah, whatever is cheaper I suppose. It depends on if I have tried it before... most of the time, I will try it just to see if it the same. For instance, I bought Walmart's brand of the Slimfast.. It's not as good as regular Slimfast... But most of the time, it is fine.
