Name Brand Label or Money in Your Pocket?

Recently I had a fun experience shopping. I found a supper cute wallet that was only $10 and looked as good as some pretty expensived wallets. Which leaves the question would you rather have a label or the money in your wallet? Check out my wallet!

I usually buy name brand. But it depends on what it is and how much more the name brand is. I live right by an outlet mall, so I can usually get name brand for just a little bit more than off brand things.

As a general rule, the name brand things usually last longer. If it's only going to be a $10-20 difference, I'll probably pick up the name brand.
We do a lot of professional, social gatherings. I always wear name brand for those things.

I usually shop by what I like either way. If it's something that I'm going to buy, then I pick up whichever I like; the brand doesn't influence me as much as the product.

I would rather have money in my wallet. There are many comparable items that are just as nice as the name brand.

I'd take the money any day of the week. Especially since many of my belongings become a casualty of the kids getting into stuff etc. Why pay more for something that one of my kids may destroy at some point.

Money in my pocket easily. There are a few things that I think I would one day love to get that are more exspencsive or brand name but for the most part I cant see the point of spending sooooo much money on things that you can get simliar product for cheaper. NIce wallet too!!
