You now, that feeling inside where you tell yourself, “I know I could totally make this myself.” What is it that keeps motivating us to purchase? Is it because we don’t know how to make salad dressing? Does it sound too hard? Do we have a favorite brand that we’ve always used and therefore it is simply easier to keep buying?
