Sometimes Coupons Are Okay But Sometimes Not
February 5, 2018 12:45pm CST
For instance this morning, I bought the store brand of toilet paper and paper towels, which by the way are thicker than the name brands for $3.99 each for 6 double rolls of toilet paper and 6 huge paper towels. All the coupons I had were good, but even with the coupons, the name brands like Scott and Cottonelle were more expensive. Do you find that sometimes the store or generic brand is cheaper than name brands even with their coupons?

Unfortunately, Latvia does not have a coupon system However each week the supermarkets change what is being offered for less. Yes, the known brands are more expensive but we can get generic brands but not always are they worth the purchase.

I once was able to get two boxes of zipping-top plastic freezer bags cheaper, I had a coupon to save $1 off two boxes, and both boxes were $3 each or two boxes for $6, and i got them for $5 for the two boxes. That was less than two boxes of cheaper brand /store brand; I was thrilled with my savings! Just got coupons in the mail today and am going to cut them out soon!

I don't use coupons. However, what I have found when it comes to generic brands is that cheap means exactly that. I prefer Scott toilet paper. I won't use anything else. Even the double roll of the other brands and generic, don't add up to the single roll of Scott, and when you consider how many sheets you get of Scott and what you get on a the other brands, the savings is in Scott's corner.
