Cheaper Doesn't Mean A Better Value
When I was a beginning saver, I used to think that cheaper was always the best way to go. Then I grew up and realized that value is what really matters. For example, I could buy store brands (or other brands) of dishwashing soap that are cheaper, but they are mainly water. Whereas a bottle of Dawn has 40% more cleaning ingredients per drop than these other brands and one bottle lasts longer because of the cleaning power. It gets my dishes sweet smeeling clean. Plus, I usually have coupons for my favorite Dawn products.
The product I'm really hooked on right now is the apple scented Dawn that performs a double duty: it's a dishwashing soap and an air freshner as well. That's twice the bang for your buck and that's my idea of value!
Keeping it clean!
