Why buy 'Kleenex' and pay top whack when the German supermarket chains stock cheaper 'equivalent' alternatives?
Beanz as the advert says meanz Heinz, but again alternatives are available.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not choosing inferior brands...I'm buying quality products and economizing at the same time.
Another sign of the times is the idea of the 'Green' consumer.
Groups such as Greenpeace have raised awareness of the impact large companies have on the environment.
Coca-cola, IBM and Microsoft are the world leaders but...
I never buy Coca-cola or similar as it's 'fatal' for tooth fillings.
My latest acquisitions (technology) were a Mac book Pro and ipod touch.
Okay, I know some parents with baby fashionistas but others (more sensible) eschew brand names and high prices.
Some (mainly youngsters) are hooked on brands names, but those of us with less spending power need to count the 'pennies'.
A very old saying, "money's made round to go round; and made flat to pile up".
