 Buying generic items, food or non, can be very beneficial. It saves a ton of money #1! But there are some things I absolutely cannot stand in the generic brands.

Sliced cheese! I thought I'd try it, but never again will I buy generic.

Tell me what you can't stand in generic brands!!!

 The kinds of foods I buy are not generic/name brand.  We buy whole foods!

 OH yeah, generic sliced cheese is one of the most disgusting things in the world. Some of that crap won't even melt. Ick! Makes me sick just thinking about it. I will say that there are a lot of generic brands that are put out by name brands. :)

I wont skimp on nesquick chocolate/strawberry milk (powder or syrup) either. Nothing tastes as good. Not even Hersheys. Plus nesquick had all the extra vitimins. I have tried ovaltine, not a fan.

Some generic brand cheeses are not good. Pay attention if it has a lot of oil in it. If it does it tastes nasty. However there are off brands that are good.

I don't buy cheap toilet paper. The cheap ones you have to use more of and we just end up buying more (I buy for whole month) before the month is up. I buy Charmin basic which usually costs $10 at the dollar store.
