    Journey to Generic

    I have a built in radar for generic items. I believe I inherited it from my Dad. You can not fool this girl with store brand goods. When I was single and living on my own, that didn’t matter much. $6 bottles of shampoo or body wash… $4 boxes of cereal… double the cost for the assurance of quality… I was willing to pay the price for the most trusted and well-known. With marriage, however, comes sacrifice. We never had a lot, so we had to make it stretch. While “Ion” shampoo is pretty much out of the question now, sometimes I can get “Herbal Essences” but… a good deal…
