Ok, since that one posted, I'll try again.
for the explanation. Makes sense. Makes me think, though, if the name brand people ordered extra because they knew there would be a run on food, did the house brand people not do the same? I suppose they filled the name brand people's orders first, which tells you what they think of people trying to keep to their budgets.
Most of the time house brands are pretty much the same, not enough difference to notice much... except for some things. Preserves in house brands have less fruit in them than Sm uckers. And actually some name brands are better. Ice cream: less fat. The cereal DH eats: more fiber. I think I'm just weary of this whole thing.
I think I will be the last person brave enough to go to the hairdressers. My layers were growing out and it was looking 'heavy'. So I got DH's barber scissors and comb and gave myself a haircut. Shortened all the layers, using scotch tape, hair clips, rollers to keep the sections separated... and it looks pretty good! I had enough hair in the sink to make a small kitten!
