  According to Discovery Channel's TLC, store-brand products thought to be the same as their pricier name-brand cousins include milk, flour, sugar, staple cereals, baby formula, bottled water, salt, bleach, aluminum foil, antacids, and pain relievers. Grab store-brand staples for these items. Doing so at the grocery store each week is a painless way to free up some cash.

I buy some things that are store brand but there are some things I just won't buy unless it's the good stuff.

I buy milk, bottled water, and aluminum foil in the store brand, from this list.  The other items I don't buy at all.  (I use almond and coconut flour which isn't available in store brand.)  Our store also has good TP.

I have no problem buying store brands for some things. There are a couple things that have to be name brand.

I have found this not to be true for bleach and cereal. Good to know about pain relievers- brand names are so expensive.  Thank you for the post.

I will try all generics at least 1 time. I already buy staples and most OTC meds generic.
