Most people don't realize that they spend hundreds or even thousands of
dollars a year buying the heavily advertised (HA) brand products in the
grocery and department stores. There is nothing in the grocery or
department stores that is rocket science. Many of the less advertised (LA)
brands or store brands are just as good or better compared to the HA
brands. You are paying for the brainwashing that many HA brand
manufacturers put in their advertising campaigns. It is not difficult to
make shampoos, conditioners, cleaning products and all those other products
that can be found in your local grocery or department store. Why are you
paying 4+ dollars for baby shampoo when you can buy the less advertised
brand for half the money? Do you like wasting money? If the HA brand
products are better why would companies be spending billions of dollars in
advertising? The answer is that they are not better. They are trying to
convince you that the high price they are charging is some how justified by
a better product. If they were better they would not need to do the massive
advertising; social networking would sell the product. Many times they are
using terminology that means nothing. Even over the counter drugs like
aspirin can be bought for half the price of the HA brands. This is a
product that has been around for decades. The LA products are under the
same FDA regulations as the HA brands. Save a lot of money and don't buy
the over priced HA brands.

When you pay the higher price for the HA brands you are paying for the
ridiculous high salaries of the CEO's, private jets, golden parachutes and
for the billions spent on advertising.

Every time you go to the store you can save several dollars. Over time this
can amount to a significant amount of money.
