  • I get all the store brand toiletries from walmart, they have all the same ingredients and work just as well, but for waaaay less

  • I despise Bi-Lo's Clear Choice brand. Yeah it's cheap, but there's a reason, and I'm willing to pay more for actual quality (as opposed to just a name). I like Publix brand of just about everything, including their premium diapers. For the most part, I'll buy store brand; there are some things, though, that I just can't find a good store-brand equivalent -- like Huggies wipes, and I've never tried the store brand of Always pads because that's just way personal and I've got super sensitive skin that gets irritated really easily. And then there are some (very few, but some) things I'll only get a particular store brand, like Bi-Lo's Southern Home string cheese because it tastes the best to us.

  • It just depends. Some store brands have good this but bad that. You just have to try them yourself.

  • I buy off brand for most things. I do the bulk of my shopping at SAVE-A-LOT, and the rest at Publix. Most things at the first store are generic and they are the store brand. I do like most of them and we get by. When I need brand name I wait for the BOGO at Publix and use coupons.
