  • Generic or store brand is what I buy most often. There are only a handful of items that I do like certain brands over another. Cheaper is always better, in my opinion.

  • Depends on what it is. If it's dishwashing liquid never generic...Dawn is the best. If it's aspirin...generic...Equate makes really good products.

  • The only thing I won't go generic on is tampons -- generic suck
