Many people I know insist that home brand or no-brand products are unhealthy, inferior and “potentially dangerous” products that one should avoid at all costs (one person I know even insisted that home brand products are a leading cause of cancer, which is obviously false!). My challenge to you is to try for yourself!
Next time you are at the supermarket, try purchasing home brand milk instead of that expensive brand. You may find that it is just as good, or even better. I personally prefer a number of home brand products to their expensive brand rivals. In testing this for yourself, one of two things may happen. You may decide that you do not like it, and hence decide not to buy it again, or you may find that it is surprisingly good and definitely worth saving those few dollars!
Let me put it this way. In the first scenario, you may lose a couple of dollars worth of the product if you decide you don't like it and choose to waste it(definitely not reccomended!) and then go back to the original product. You really lose nothing. If you do decide that you prefer the home brand version, or it is just a good, depending on the product you could be saving daily!
One example of this is milk. Depending on prices, our household sometimes saves up to $2 by purchasing home brand milk. As a household of 4 we go through a bottle of milk on a nearly daily basis, this can add up to $10-$14 a week in savings. When this is done with multiple products, the amount you save could be staggering.
So in conclusion, I urge you to take the plunge, and see what these home-brand products have to offer. I’m sure that 9 times out of 10 you will be pleasantly surprised. Nothing Ventured, Nothing Gained!
