    Other than razor blades, virtually everything I purchase is chosen by what's on sale ... I see no logic in brand loyalty. Shits all the same, for the most part ...

    Agreed. Cheapest = best IMO.

    you must be poor. i get what i like and wouldn't ever buy anything just because it was on sale. i suppose you buy discount colostomy bags too? that's why your wife left you. the black guy she ran off with wasn't as cheap as you are. :owned:

    Most brand name items are the exact same product as the no frills stuff.

    My favorite are people who swear by Boars Head meat.

    I delivered meat products one summer in college. One of the pickup spots was for deli meat. The same exact product would come down a conveyor line and either go to the right or left at the end. Left got store brand packaging. Right got Boars Head packaging.

    I buy virtually the same items when I grocery shop and if it happens to be on sale that's nice but I'd never buy something because it was on sale.

    Most "sales" and coupons are a scam too.

    How many times have you bought a product just because it is BOGO? Would you have absolutely bought that if it wasn't BOGO? Doubt it.

    In law school I used to grocery shop with a classmate/friend who exclusively bought sale items. If apple pie was on sale that's what she'd eat that week. I understand she was a broke student but it seemed entirely bizarre.

    it's so weird. it's like watching that extreme couponers show and seeing people buying a shit ton of stuff that they'll never need or use in brands they'd never otherwise buy? what's the point?

    LOL I know! There's only a few items I like and consume regularly so I'm not going to buy things I don't know if I want or will use to save money. When I shopped with this friend she'd end up saving amounts like $50 and I'd save $2 or $3.

    I buy what I want and don't give a crap about what's on sale. It hasn't always been that way, but it's nice to just shop without having to pay that much attention.

    very little. the biggest sale items in the local stores are still more expensive than amazon's normal price for items. for example: Puffs Basic locally is $3-$4/box. on Amazon it is $2.10 per box. the local markup here is oppressive so i only buy fresh foods locally.

    Insinuating that one has an exclusive attraction to the said person's mother as the intended insultee is about as outdated of an insult as I'd expect from someone with such marginal intelligence .... I'll let you catch some sleep, so as to not make you late for the short-bus tomorrow ... 'night, Corky

    I'm not afraid to try new or different things to save a dollar or two. I'm fairly adventurous.
