Why We Should Prefer Generic over Branded Products

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of PBM Products. All opinions are 100% mine.

Given a choice between generic labels and brand-name products, I’ll go for generic brands anytime. Why? Because I don’t think it’s wise to spend more on something when I can get the same quality for so much less. I know there are people out there who won’t buy generics because they think it’s an indication of their personal wealth or a reflection of their personal taste, while others believe that generic products are not as good as the branded products and that they aren’t getting their money’s worth.

The truth is that generics are no different from the branded products because they are made of exactly the same ingredients. Sure, generics may not look as appealing as the brand-name products or even taste the same way as our preferred brand, but they work just as well as the branded products, and they save us a lot of money, too! Isn’t that what we all need in this time of penny-pinching and belt-tightening?

Do you want to learn new money saving tips? The article entitled “10 Products to Always Buy Generic” lists the following items that we should always buy generic: (1) over-the-counter-medications, (2) cereal, (3) pantry staples (sugar, salt, flour, etc.), (4) soda, (5) gasoline, (6) electronic cables, (7) makeup and other beauty products, (8) batteries, (9) salad mix and produce, and (10) baby formula. Aside from the great savings we’ll incur, these products are just as good as brand-name products. I have a stock of generic cough and cold medications at home because they’re just as effective as the branded medications but they cost so much less.

Speaking of infant formula, did you know that there isn’t much difference between generic and branded baby formulas? That’s because the Infant Formula Act sets the same regulations for both generic and branded-name infant formulas. Therefore, you are assured that store brand formula meets the same FDA nutritional requirements as the branded baby formulas. You also get to save up to $25 a month when you buy generic infant formula.

    We used Parent's Choice with our twins, and they did very well on it. We pretty much knew we'd have to formula feed when they were born, and the hospital sent us several samples home of a name brand formula. Once we ran out of that, we had no idea what we were going to do. We didn't realize how expensive formula was going to be. We did our research and ended up choosing Parent's Choice after major label comparison, and finding out that all infant formulas are required to be made nutritionally equal by the FDA. I mean, why should I have to cover the marketing costs for the name brands???
    I love their savings calculator that shows you how much money you could save if you switched to store brands! http://www.parentschoiceformula.com/baby-formula-savings-calculator.aspx
