I believe you can spice up anything if you know how. Buying generic or store brands are a great way to save money and eliminate the added cost of name brands. In the end a can of green beans is still a can of green beans...

Agreed. There are some products that I am guilty of requiring to be name brand, but usually the only reason an item is cheaper than its name brand twin, is the fact that they dont advertise, or put the oroduct in big fancy wrap, thus bringing down the cost to produce it. My son cannot wear anything but Pampers, and Ive tried store brand formuka, which resulted in a tummy ache for baby, and sleepless night for Mommy and Daddy. But I promise, to save 50 cents on a can of veggies because it has more plain packaging, you bet!

I almost always buy generic/store brands. Whatever it is food or hbc/health products. Say your looking for a certain vitamin. Check out the label. You will be surprised at the list of ingredients. They are the same. Why pay more for a name brand? I also have found that a lot of the store brand foods taste better than the name brands too, there are just a few instances where that isn't true. These days you have to save where you can....

That's true. Buy the store brand only if you can get them on sale and cheaper than the generic/store brand.

I usually buy the store/generic brands, however, I do clip coupons and look for deals when I am shopping. Sometimes the name brands have good sales and are cheaper than the store brands.

I cant figure out way so many buy only name brand everything. Granted there are some things that the mane brand is better but not many and the money saved buying generic and store brand is amazing. I am glad to see that I am not the only one that thinks buying generic is the way to go
