List Rules Vote up the generic and store brands that offer the same quality as more expensive name brands.

Buying groceries today can be expensive. Prices seem to be continually going up with no end in sight and shopping for a family has become a major strain on the budget. That's why it is more important than ever before to shop for generic brands that are just as good as name brands.

Stores brands used to be a major step down in quality from their brand name rivals. Today the best generic brand in a category is often just as good as the name brand is. There is no longer a sacrifice to be made in terms of nutrition, quality, and taste, when picking a leading generic brand over a name brand. This has been proven to be true in a number of taste tests where the generic products often perform just as well as the product that is twice as expensive.

This list is the place to vote up your favorite generic brands so that your fellow shoppers know where to turn to find good generic products that are great substitutes for the real thing.
