  • I don't even buy laundry soap, I make my own. It's so much less expensive than anything, even the cheap stuff, at the store.

  • OK the previous poster has me there, Jiff peanut butter CANNOT be replaced by a generic. NOTHING compares.

  • Most anything except mayonnaise. That's the only one I am particular about. Everything else I buy is generic, unless the brand name is less expensive than the generic.

  • There are only a few things I can think of off of the top of my head that I do not buy in generic.........Mac & Cheese and Peanut Butter are two that I never buy in generic. Just don't care for the taste of them!

  • Everything EXCEPT---Laundry soap, and dish soap, you can not skimp on that stuff. But everything else is okay, actually Walmart brand--GREAT VALUE Creamy Mac & Cheesse is better than Kraft.
