13 Household Brands (I Can't Go Without)

Ok, I could, but these are things I prefer, after testing & living through other products. ;)
1. Gain laundry detergent. (or Tide) I love Gain. I've not been buying it for the sake of saving money, but I don't think it's worth it. I'll take my Gain.
2. Glad trash bags. I tried the Huffy, and they're terrible! Target brand is also good, too.
3. Aveeno facial moisturizer. Tried others, and they're not the same.
3. Cool Whip fat free whip cream. I do buy the store brand if it's cheaper, but I think the Cool Whip version is better.
4. HERSHEY'S! I am a chocoholic. That Palmers brand-just nasty. Sorry excuse for chocolate!
5. Windex over Glass Plus.
6. Clorox cleaning wipes. Lysol smell too strong for me.
7. Charmin Basic toilet paper. I think you've got to have a rough tooshy to tolerate Scott!
8. Hellmann's Mayonnaise. Don't know why, but store brands are gross.
9. Pampers Swaddlers/Cruisers. Other diapers are rough, rash-causing, and leak.
10. Aunt Millie's Bread. (I love the Multi-grain and Fiber for Life) One of the few brands that makes bread without high-fructose corn syrup.
11. Dove deodorant. Suave doesn't cut it here.
12. International Delight coffee cream, particularly fat-free french vanilla. Coffee Mate isn't as good.
13. Prego. If it's going to be a jar sauce for pasta, Prego.

So there's my list. Probably not too interesting this week, but hey, I'm on little sleep!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great Thursday!

I don't like Pampers. They always smell like they've already been peed in before I even put the new diaper on my kid.

Happy TT and thanks for stopping by.

Great list. Hellmans for sure! I can't live without my Downy or Dawn dish soap. Windex is best! Happy TT and thanks for stopping by!

Interesting. I valued your brand opions. I tend to buy generic most often for the sake of saving pennies but there are some corners you just can't cut.

I HAVE to have my All Small & Might laundry detergent. I also agree with Jenn, If it's not Kraft, it's not mac and cheese.

Thanks for stopping by.

BTW - Mom will not kill...only mame. :o)


Janet said...

I love Tide, too! And Glad, and I really like the Aveeno scentless body lotion. I mix it with a spritz of my perfume or a drop of scented oil ... love it!

Nicole Austin said...

Great list of essentials! Especially the chocolate. Can't live without the stuff. :D

impworks said...

My gran and grandad always used to have Hellmann's Mayonnaise one of the things that sticks in my memory for no good reason...

michelle said...

I like Hershey chocolate as well, though I am very particular. It must be Hershey Symphony. I really can't handle the flavour of just regular Hershey's.

I would have to add Barkeeper's Friend, if I were to do a list, as well as Coke (I'm addicted, I'm sure), and Dove Butter Pecan Pleasure ice cream.

Great list. I might have to try and remember to do something similar sometime if I get stuck for ideas, and see what I can come up with.

I actually go with the store brand spaghetti sauce.

But I'm with you on the Windex and Hellman's. Also, NEVER use a store brand razor...your legs deserve Gillette!

Thanks for visiting The Pink Flamingo.

Have you tried Paul Newman's instead of Prego? The whole sockeroni or what ever it is is excellent. When I want 'fancy' I take a jar, add a pound of bacon, couple of large diced onions, and sev jars of sliced mushrooms.

I can't live without my Aveeno hand lotion. It is the best stuff evah!

Most of the time I use Gain if it's on sale, and if it's chocolate it's go to be Hershey's

Have a great weekend.

You show a lot more brand loyalty than we do. usually I get supermarket own brands for most things.
