You want to save a few bucks so you go the generic route, but money-man Matt Granite says not all generic brands are worth it.
Here's a look at your best and worst generic buys.
Generic medicine - yes you should buy it. You'll save a lot of money. Generic medicine often has the exact same ingredients as the name brand kind. You also can't go wrong buying generic juice, cereal, seasoning and lightning cables.
The generic items you should avoid include paint, toilet paper, tissues, diapers and tv's.
There's not one generic brand for these items that tested as well as its brand name competitor.
