TMI Tuesday: March 18, 2014 - Buying Behaviors

Thank you to Virtual Sinner for today’s TMI Tuesday questions.

Consumer purchase behavior is much studied. These questions are about your buying behavior with respect to different products.

1. Name a category for which you are very fussy and only one product will do. Name the product.

Hair conditioner. It has to be Pantene Pro-V Curly Moisture Renewal

2. Name a category for which you are fussy about quality and buy top-of-the-line brands.

Frosted Animal Cookies. It’s Mother’s or nothing.

3. Name a category for which you are most interested in price, and will buy whatever brand is cheapest.

Unsalted Butter.

4. Name a category for which you are unable to find a satisfactory product.

Anti-Bacterial and phosphate-free dish soap.

5. Name a product that has disappeared from the market for which you have been unable to find a satisfactory substitute.

Nothing comes to mind, except perhaps a 10-count family pack of chimichangas, versus the 8-count it shrunk to during the Great Recession.

6. Name a product that you buy that your mother or father used to buy.

I recently started to buy Crisco, but in sticks not the big container like my mom used to buy.

7. Name a product that you won’t buy because your mother or father used to buy it.

Cream of Wheat. Blech.

8. Name a product that is over-rated.

Any cleaning device with “disposable” heads, like Swiffers. They are a step in the direct opposite direction we need to be heading.

9. Name a product that is under-rated.

Linen napkins. Imagine the paper cost we’d reduce if people started to buy and use linens instead.

Bonus: If there was one product that you would re-invent or improve, what is it?

Batteries. I’d make them last much, much longer.
