I went to the grocery store with my brother on Saturday. He's used to budgeting, because he makes less than I do and his fiancee (whom he lives with) doesn't work (she's a full-time nursing student). Anyway, he was remarking over how many name brands I buy. I never really thought about it before. Would I save a lot of money just buying store brands when possible? Does anyone do this? Btw, I'm a pasta snob and will never buy store brand pasta, but the rest of it I don't mind.
