Products you shouldn’t buy generic

by frugalista on August 17, 2010

My friend sent me an article about Products To Never Buy Generic, and I had to check it out.

On this list, for instance, were paper products, condiments and MP3s. I can get with it. Also, I like the taste of my grocery store’s yogurt, but it has a lot more calories than the designer yogurt.

Frugalistas like affordable and quality goods! It’s our world! Sometimes generic works. Sometimes it doesn’t. We have watch it!

What do you refuse to buy generic?

I will no longer purchase my skin care products as generics. I like the Olay anti-aging products. I purchased the “store-brand” of the day lotion and boy was I disappointed. It was nowhere near as creamy. instead it was runny. And I had to use twice as much, otherwise my face was as dry as the Sahara desert just 3 hours later. I’ve learned my lesson. It’s true, some things you cannot buy generic.
