    Do brands matter to you?

    *Wait for the poll*

    When we went grocery shopping yesterday, this conversation came up. Just wondering what you all think!

    Not really, but I do like certain things that particular brands sell like the Healthy Choice Mixers or a particular Ice Cream flavor from Ben and Jerry's etc.

    Grocery shopping I don't care, however, when it comes to clothing, I do.

    Depends on the product. Most things I just buy whatever's cheapest, certain things I prefer the brand (if it's not ridiculously overpriced )

    Depends on the product For example, ice cream, yes. Soup, no.

    Yes, for me and my experiences it matters with almost everything.

    We are the same way. I buy whatever is cheapest unless there is a significant difference in taste.

    All I buy is name brand. I buy the same things my Mom did and she never bought the generic so I have never tried them. Im sure it all taste the same but i'm weird and dont like to change something I already know I like.

    Totally depends on the product. Cleaning products I usually go generic. Foods I tend to go name brand because I trust it more than generic or store brand and I know the companies practices (in regards to meats, pesticides, dairy, farming etc...)...with some things being the exception.

    It really depends on the item I'm purchasing. I don't mind paying a little extra for quality, especially when it comes to clothing.

    Groceries, I'm not too picky with brands. If it's a brand name and on sale, that's great. If it's a generic and cheaper, that's even better.
