I Admit It!!

In today's economy, I have to say that DH & I are fortunate to have full time jobs. We're both in fields that were not affected. Even so, we still have budgets to contend with and have to try to limit ourselves to over spending. But sometimes I just can't help but spend especially when it comes to my boyz.

With that being said, I am not one to be ashamed of buying store named products. Yes I said it. I buy generic! It used to be frowned upon when I was growing up. My grandfather used to wait on the lines at the community center to pick up his packs of yellow American cheese, beans and those hideous white cans with black stripes. How I used to run to my building with his items in tow so no one can see us. Now I know some of you guys remember this? C'mon admit it!

Well today if its at a better price than a popular brand, I will buy it. I've bought paper products, baby wipes, body wash, and certain foods. I have to admit, my the most favorite salad dressing comes from Walmart. Its their Great Value Caesar dressing. I've had other dressings and none have compared to this one. Its thick, and full of flavor. It's actually a bit peppery. I use it as a dip, or instead of mayo I put some on my sandwich. I'm in love. I usually have to buy a few bottles because this flies out of the house.

So next time you're at a Walmart I suggest you to go grab one to try it out! Its under $2 bucks but so worth it! I think Walmart should send me some. How about it Walmart? LOL

I find that generic products are just as good as name brand for a lot of things!

I love Walmart Great Value brand; it is just as tasty as the other "fancy" brands. I always used to frown on it too. Heck I used too wrinkle my nose at Walmart period! My fiance slowly broke me into it and now I look forward to the huge savings (its been 2 years now). Yep I remember my grandmother going with her cart to stand on those lines and I hated it...memories :)

I do the shame in my game of saving money here and there :) We go to target because walmart is too far away and I don't do traffic very well LOL!

Enjoying your fan!!!
