Well, today we are going to have our own version.
NAME BRAND VS STORE/GENERIC BRAND, WHO WILL WIN?
As I was leaving
Here is my problem with that:
Were those name brand products on sale?
Were they bought with a coupon?
Was it just the first product they saw? For example, there is not just one name brand of spaghetti sauce. There is Ragu, Prego, Barilla, Francesco Rinaldo, Newmans Own...
Store brand items:
**usually taste very similar, if not the same as their name brand counterparts
**yes they are usually cheaper BUT
**they rarely go on sale, and they rarely have coupons
Here is an example for you
a store brand canned pasta was on sale 10/$10
a name brand was on sale for the same price but, there were .50/2 coupons available. 5 coupons times 1.00 (because this store doubles = 10 cans for $5 or half off.
Now is there a home for store brands on a Coupon Queens' pantry shelves? I say...YES.
**If there is an item that you NEED and there are no coupons out for it.
**If the generic is truly cheaper after a coupon & sale have been factored in.
The point is to save money right?! What about you, do you buy store brands? Why or why not?
