November 13, 2017

Opting for the generic brands can save you lots of money, but as Ramona's mom Wheezy demonstrates it can be awfully tempting to buy name brands instead...

So which items should you buy generic? Here's a few:

Generic-brand medications share the same active ingredients, dosage and usage directions as name-brand drugs.


Does anyone actually pay attention to name brand on a bag of lettuce? There's really no difference between that and the lettuce right next to it that's cents cheaper.


The pricing and packaging might be different, but purified water is purified water!


Ramona and her mom fight over these constantly...Wheezy wants those name brand versions, but you can get the exact same sugar and salt for cheaper by going generic!
