I buy store brands when I shop. I compare ingredients to the national brand and buy the equivalent in the lower price items. I buy the smallest package possible in the equivalent until I use the item and find if I like it or not. If I do, I buy a larger amount next time and save even more!

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.
