i’m vain and i have stained teeth

ok, I drink a _lot_ of coffee and am self-conscious about my slightly stained teeth. especially because -- my family gave me some Crest Whitestrips last Christmas! talk about a hint! so -- I don't want to give up the coffee, and in fact get a bunch of high-quality coffee free as gifts from relatives who live in Hawaii. but -- come on, Crest Whitestrips are really expensive. they are a once-every-few-months splurge for me. the other day, I noticed that Target makes their own brand for about half the price of Crest's. has anyone tried these? are they "just as good" as Whitestrips? any other ideas?
