Brand names aren't always better. Not only can you save a ton of money buying the store version, but they're often nearly identical to their brand name competitor — ever check the ingredients list on your cough medicine? Compare it to the store brand ingredients and you'll see what I'm talking about.
The same goes for AmazonBasics. Since it's Amazon's house brand, most of their items are cheaper than the competition, yet just as good, if not better in quality. And because all these picks are affordable, just think of what you can do with all the money you're saving — put it in the bank? Bury it in your yard? Eat it? NAH — we all know you're going to spend it on more Amazon stuff.
