Store brand vs name brand

I tend to buy a lot more things store brand nowadays. I'm trying to save money anyway I can. There are some things that I buy name brand cause I simply like it better. How about you?

  • I also buy whatever is cheaper... Most of the time I honestly can't tell the difference anyway. The only somewhat "name brand" item I buy is the dog food, but only because if I buy anything else, they start farting all day long, heh.

  • I buy what is ever cheapest. Sometimes the name brand is cheaper then the store brand.

  • Most times what you are buying ARE name brand. Stores will pay the "brands" to put their labels on the "brands" products.
    So, dont think just because you arent spending the big buck and have that "name" on their that you are getting less inferior products.

  • I buy what ever I can get cheapest. Usually with coupons I can get name brands but every now and again a store brand works out the be cheaper.

  • Most of the time I find Name Brands to be cheaper when on sale with a coupon.

  • I buy the "store brand" usually, if it's cheaper, unless I don't like it for some reason.

  • It depends on the item. With some things I have a strong preference, with others, I don't care.
