Do you buy name brand food & clothing only or buy what you can afford?

I buy both. It depends on what it is.

  • I buy what's on sale. I hate expensive items.

  • There is just some things you dont go off-brand on!!! You skimp where you can and break your bank where you have to, but always know when and where to spend it I think! :).

  • I shop at wal*mart... they have my favorite short person jeans :o) As far as food goes, I buy what is good and what I like.

  • If I find a brand that I like, I stick with it. Like my dd can only wear Pampers because they don't have that plastic material that makes her break out. If I see that a generic product has the same thing as the name brand, I'll go generic. Like you said, it just depends on what it is. Even if I can afford it, I'm all about saving money!

  • I'm about saving money. Always on sale + coupon for stockpile. : ) Always cash, no credit. If we can't afford to buy it outright, we save until we can including cars. The only thing that does not apply to is the house.

  • I buy a lot of name brand especially clothes, food I have some things I buy name brand of, and a lot of things I don't, there are some things that name brands really taste better. But I also shop sales, clearances, and use coupons.

  • I just buy what I like. Some are name brand. Some are generic.

  • I buy the brand names at bargain prices so I get the best of both worlds

  • At the grocery, there are about 3 things I will NEVER go cheap on, but the rest of it I go cheap and use coupons too so that helps with the name-brand things.
