Random

Do any of you have items that you must have a certain brand of? People tell you that they're all the same, but you know your special brand is superior? I do! For example, I only buy Viva paper towels and Cottonelle toliet paper. I know I can find other brands for less money, but to me, they're worth the "splurge". Another, Naked Juice orange juice. Costco sells a gallon for $6 (approximately) and it's fresh orange juice (of course living in the middle of orange groves makes it even easier to have fresh squeezed oj). Again, worth the extra money. Yesterday as I was walking through Costco, excited that some of "my brands" were on the coupon list, it made me think of all the little brands that have earned my loyalty. What are your, "I will not settle on a different brand" items?

tillamook cheese, and yes, the graham crackers are a honey maid must too. hmmm, and over the years I've become a yoplait yogurt snob too.

Julie...we only buy yoplait too. But that is actually b/c of Hylke. He won't eat any thing but!

Sign me up...I am a fan of Cottonelle too!! Best stuff..haha Last few times I've had to go slumming and bought the Costco brand (Kirkland) toilet paper...hahaha It's alright, but nothing like the other stuff. And some stuff that just "isn't the same" is my facial skincare. I've really had to figure out where I could cut corners. I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE my Philosophy Purity face wash and their Hope In A Jar moisturizer. Best stuff I've ever used. Unfortunately it is majorly expensive. So right now I am using an Avon Ageless Results line. It works pretty good (better than other "cheaper" stuff I've tried), but nothing like Philosophy. And as far as the food goes....KRAFT MAC & CHEESE all the way. The Kirkland brand Mac & Cheese is N-A-S-T-Y NAAAAASTY!!!
