Buy Generic


January 14, 2015: Buy Generic

One of the oldest ways to save is still one of the best!

Let’s not forget that one of the easiest ways to save money is to buy generic. I’ve even made my husband do a blind taste test on certain items to prove that generic products are just as good as brand names. And generic brands aren’t just for groceries, but everything from everyday household items to medicine. Generics are a great way to save when something you need isn’t on sale.

Of course, don’t assume that generics are always the cheaper option. If you’re an experienced shopper prone to keeping your eyes on sales and using coupons, you can often pick up those brand names for less, it’s just a matter of how much time you’re willing to put into it!


The Family Money Minute is made possible by Operation Christmas Child, who reminds us that by saving money, we can make a bigger impact on the lives of needy children around the world.
