Mome reads Mommy, My daughter's way to spell it when she was younger... It stuck. My son calls me Mome... just like it looks. I now sign all my notes to them "Love, Mome". It's our inside secret and makes them smile. I always want them to smile.

Buying Generic~ It's Cooler than it Used to Be

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of PBM Products. All opinions are 100% mine.

I remember years ago when my brother was trying to sell Amway. He gave me his pitch. I bought the "starter kit" to help him out and actually found that the items worked really well. I wasn't necessarily surprised, I didn't care. There was something about having all my household products carrying the same label that just didn't appeal to me. They've changed a have I.

I've never been the person who has to have all the name brand "stuff". I've had named-brand stuff, I just never had to have it. I buy store brand products all the time when grocery shopping. Occasionally I'll find something that just doesn't work or taste as well as other brands but it's very rare. I have no issue with all my pantry goods having the same "store" label. It actually makes me feel pretty smart and frugal. came up with a list of 10 Products to Always Buy Generic . It lists stuff like cereal, pantry staples, and baby formula. It's main reason for purchasing the store brand formula is that the Infant Formula Act insures that all formulas are certified by the FDA and are healthy and good for your baby. I'll admit I bought the most expensive for my first child. I wised up by the time the second came along. Talking with other parents and researching what I heard helped me disqualify the belief that spending more was getting a better product for my child.

How do you cut costs when shopping? Do you have to have specific name brands? How do you choose which brand to buy?
