Are You A Name Brand Freak or Do You Buy Generic Sometimes?

Do you typically purchase only name brand products?  The name sells it to you or do you find name brand products are just better than off brand or generic products?

To me, it depends on the product.  For instance, I’ve always bought name brand potato chips until recently.  One day as I was shopping at Walmart, they did not have Lays regular potato chips.  They were sold out completely.  So I picked up a bag of Great Value regular potato chips.  We opened them when I got home and were pleasantly surprised.  The chips, while not as good as Lays, were pretty good.  The bag only cost me $1.12 vs. $2.99.  Win.  I have since bought the $1.00 bag of Fritos.  They are exactly the same as the name brand.  They have the skinny ones and the big and fat dip chips.  My next purchase  was the Great Value Crunch Cheetos.  They are my favorite.  And this bag only costs $.82 at the store I shop at.

I will admit that some things are better when you purchase name brand.  Then others, are just as good or better and costs much less.  This led me to the following poll to quiz you guys on your shopping habits.
