famous brand products are usually more expensive. but is it real the quality of these products is better. i think it depends. it's not always true. famous brand, especially famous brand clothes. many people are addicted to it. some are even crazy about it. so what's your idea on brand products? will you spend more to buy them?

I think this would depend from person to person. Right now, since I am earning just right, I would have to be a little practical. I would buy items that is in quality but will cost me less. I believe that some branded items, those expensive one's will have to protect the name of their company so they must have a high quality for their items to have it last longer. If I have more than enough money, say someday, that is the time that I will buy some famous brand- but surely, it must be something that I NEED, it's not always buying for something that I just WANT. There's a difference of course. =)

Speaking of clothing...no way. As for household items...yeah, I do, but usually only because I have tried the off brands and wasn't pleased. Paper towels and toilet paper are two that come right to mind- I will not buy off brands on those...I spend the extra money. (Though I have brands I prefer over other name brands, too). Mayonnaise, peanut butter, shampoo, espresso. Yeah, quite a few, now that I think about it. Now...macaroni and cheese- Walmart brand thick and creamy beats Kraft any day. We don't eat it often, but when we do nothing but Walmart's brand will do. Garbage bags- Walmart brand again. We have begun to eat more natural/organic foods...I don't know if I am getting "name brands" but I am definitely paying more no matter how I look at it..lol.
