AJ & McCall: Generic Versus Name Brand Debate @8

Everyone wants to save money but where is the line when it comes to those preferences for higher quality? What amount of generic versus name brand do you buy for the Debate At 8? Apparently AJ is a bum and McCall is Martha Stewart. Do you save money by making things at home as opposed to buying them because McCall is always lecturing AJ on homemade sauces.
