Frugal Fridays - Brand Loyalty

While taking part in "Works for Me Wednesday" this week I had to list the brands I can't do without. It was pretty hard because I'm not very brand loyal. (Here are my choices.)

And that's my frugal observation for today: It's easier to be frual and work with a budget when you're not a "loyal" customer. Generics are often just as good as or better than the name brands. Homegrown or local options are even better.

I'm not saying you can't have some favorites but you'll find more wiggle room in your budget if you keep the "must haves" to a minimum. Biblical Womanhood hosts Frugal Fridays - go check out the other ideas!

So true! My "must-haves" have really dwindled in the past few years and I hardly ever miss them!
