Depends on the item, for a cable cheap, for a raft or something big however, not gonna go cheap.

I read "everyday HH products" to mean disposables (soaps, paper goods, food staples, personal care, cleaners, etc) vs durables (appliances, electronics, etc.) I agree w/ party free; I'm brand loyal on many items but also know that many store brands r same as name brands but usually cost 20-30% less.

Ideally both! I buy vegan stuff, so it's usually high quality and high priced by default.

This question should be ran as made in US or China.

02/20/12 7:12 am

who would ever except lo quality? It doesn't last and normally costs more over time. Especially with appliances, homes, things that use electricity, electronics, and light bulbs. Get LED light bulbs. Most energy saves and lasts forever

I voted Better, but it really depends on the product. Dish soap, dishwasher packs, and cleaning supplies? Whatever is cheapest. Laundry soap, fabric softener, toilet paper, tissues, and paper towels? Specific brand names all the way. I'm picky about paper products and things that I wear.

I prefer better quality but that isn't always what I get

02/19/12 8:56 pm

I see the babbler says the majority is wrong again. Pleeeeeease be quiet.

02/19/12 8:49 pm

I would get something better for the extra dollar.

02/19/12 8:41 pm

depends. bathroom cleaner? cheap. light bulbs? quality. sometimes it matters, other times it doesn't.

02/19/12 7:56 pm

I buy Made in USA whenever I can because it is a better value for the monry

02/19/12 7:40 pm

Depends on who's paying for it

Most expensive item you'll buy is the cheapest one you have to keep replacing. Buy the best quality (not necessarily highest price) the first time and only time. I've learned too many hard lessons from trying to be thrifty. Not always worth it. Glass cleaner, who cares. Ski clothes, highest quality.

I am sure SoH is going to sell my name to PG. (Proctor and Gamble)

I've been a Consumer Reports subscriber forever, and rely heavily on what they say. Aside from that, I've found that for most items I get what I pay for. And I don't want to pay twice. So I'll go with a higher end, trusted, reputable brand, or one that Consumer Reports recommends.

02/19/12 6:32 pm

I go for the cheapest of the good quality products; if the cheapest sucks, then we go up a grade

I look for the best when it's on sale, and stock up on stuff like TP. I compare ingredients and nutritional info. Often cheaper food has a lot more sodium, or carb fillers. Sure Fine soup tastes watered down. I see even "major" food brands are cutting corners, like Stouffers and Marie Callenders.

02/19/12 5:41 pm

As long as the TP doesn't fall apart, I vote cheaper.

Evaluate cost vs quality for best value. A cheap tool that gets a lot of use is probably as bad a value as a top quality one I'll only use once. When lazy, just go with Kirkland brand and be happy.

02/19/12 4:21 pm

I said cheap, but it depends on what it is.

02/19/12 4:10 pm

I always look for the best quality no matter what the price is. The better quality always lasts longer so you get a lot more for your money.

02/19/12 3:52 pm

Find the good stuff on sale :)

Economy is too crap to go expensive, unless it will last longer. With most products that's not the case, so cheaper is best.

I buy a mixture. Because I tend to buy green cleaning products, there's not really a cheap option for those. Cheap toilet paper, no thanks!

HolyBabble, still telling us we're wrong but in a much nicer way. I'm impressed.

02/19/12 2:16 pm

Half of the time, the "higher quality" is no better whatsoever. If it is, only a minuscule amount, for a much higher price.

02/19/12 2:07 pm

Gunny I'd consider iPad as essential personal electronic device... Go Apple!!!! Oorah!!!

What would fall into the "everyday household products category" ?

iPad ? Clorox ? Socks ? Paper towels?
Bread ? Windex ? Ketchup?

I would love it if American products were readily available and were made for quality. Buy American! But nowadays it kind of means you're buying a crap product imo

02/19/12 1:41 pm

We should ask for a poll showing how many people are sick of Holybabble
