What do you prefer when you shop for everyday household products: higher quality or lower prices?
ohhh yeah landoffree I vote I'm sick of holybabble
plus better lasts longer
seriously holybabble I agree with oreilyo their is no right answer
HolyBabble, there is no correct answer on a poll, i cant believe u just said that
holybabble is childlike gee why is that parents spoil much Yes
Last comment by a true believer going aggro everyday of his life #swaggerjackbox I have no idea what anything I just said means
Depends on the item, for a cable cheap, for a raft or something big however, not gonna go cheap.
I don't necessarily choose better price wise but I try to shop 100% all natural when it come to house hold products
The best that I can afford.
You get what you pay for
it depend what it is. cheaper doesn't always save money, but sometimes it does,
In that aspect, we buy darn near everything MADE IN THE USA
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.
BUY AMERICAN REGARDLESS OF PRICE.
This question should be ran as made in US or China.
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.
@Epic, thank you!
Oh I for got
All SoH users
Holybabble just do us all a favor and pleeez shut up
I prefer better quality but that isn't always what I get
I see the babbler says the majority is wrong again. Pleeeeeease be quiet.
I would get something better for the extra dollar.
depends. bathroom cleaner? cheap. light bulbs? quality. sometimes it matters, other times it doesn't.
I buy Made in USA whenever I can because it is a better value for the monry
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.
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.
you get what you pay for
As long as the TP doesn't fall apart, I vote cheaper.
Quality vs. Price
Key word here is prefer! :) pero sometimes ya gotta do what ju gotta do! I'm okay with that too!
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.
I said cheap, but it depends on what it is.
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.
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.
Half of the time, the "higher quality" is no better whatsoever. If it is, only a minuscule amount, for a much higher price.
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?
Landofree, touch their name, hit ignore forever, problem for you is resolved. I did it & feel much better today.
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
We should ask for a poll showing how many people are sick of Holybabble
