Generic Products

Take caution when buying generic products. The price is usually lower, of course....however is the price more?

Here's what I mean. If you purchase a store brand bath tissue with 1000 sheets for $5, the cost is .005 cents per sheet, instead of purchasing a quality tissue at 1000 sheets for $8, you may be spending more by purchasing the store brand. This depends on the quality.

In this example, imagine when you use the store brand, it takes twice as much tissue to do the job. So, in reality it is costing twice as much because you have to purchase twice as much to get the job done. Spend the $8 and buy the quality good.

I have found a couple of generics that work well, and will try to remember to post my reviews here when I think about it.
