Yesterday I overheard coworkers talking about allergy medicine and how expensive it was. It really is spendy - I've seen cold and allergy medicines priced at 12 bucks before, BUT right next to it I always see the generic version for 4 bucks. I'm kind of a cheapskate so I always get the generic version of medicine. I'm still alive so I assume they both work the same.
This conversation got me thinking about store brand vs. name brand.
