Who here opts for generic or store-brand products over brand-name items to save money?
I know I do. Sometimes the savings are minor, like 20 cents off a can of beans, but other times, I can save over a dollar on an item by not going with the brand-name version.
Of course, there are some products I'm picky about, like my moisturizing cream. I buy the Cetaphil brand because I feel like it's the best quality for my skin, even though the store-brand version is always cheaper.
What things do you buy generic and how has it saved you money? What brand-name products earn your dollars regardless of price difference?
