Store brands are often very good, so give them a try! This is especially true of things like frozen fruits and veggies, staples like flour and milk, and cleaning products, where the taste or use doesn't vary much between brands anyway.
House brands I like: 365 (Whole Foods), Wegman's, Up/Archer Farms (Target). Trader Joe's, of course, is the King of Store Brands, since nearly everything they sell is their own store brand!

I was a brand name shopper for many years. After I was out of work for back surgery, i needed to find ways to cut expenses. I found that the store brands are just as good in some cases. I buy mostly store brands now and I feel I get so much more for my money.
