Gold Blend (Tasters choice?) Coffee, Old El Paso Taco kits, Pepsi Max are my "brands" but apart from that anything goes as long as it is cheap, value for money and does its job.

Yesterday I needed some picante sauce for my burrito. I realized that I won't use anything but Pace. But, I am not too fond of the chunky style though.

I'm a Coke Classic girl here!! Also, Jif peanut butter only!! And for feminine hygeine, Kotex only!! For chocolate milk, Country Fresh only!! I can drink any kind of white milk. But chocolate is different. I think all others are way too watered down.

Not too long ago my hubby brought home a box of Kellogg's cereal. I nearly hit the roof! I am loyal to General Mills because it is Bobby's main sponsor. He now remembers to only buy cereals like Cheerios or Wheaties. I am very loyal to the sponsors for my driver. Also, I do buy Coca-Cola! Of course, I cannot have sugar, so it is Diet Coke.

On some things Im brand loyal to on others it doesn't worry me.
Coffee and tea I definately have my favourites.
Band aids, deoderant, washing powder, laundry pre treater, cheese. A lot of things I do go for just whatever is cheapest. It's one of those depends things, I do occassionally try something different just to see if I still use that brand cause I like the name or the taste/how it works.
I don't care if it's diet pepsi or coke to me they are very similar (you probably don't want to hear that) but they are the only diet drinks I like at all.

dh--

T-gel shampoo
Dial Active soap
Charmin Plus TP (SOOO expensive!)
Right Guard antiperspirant (I use Suave or cheapest)
Crest sensitive toothpaste
Lots of dh's personal items are pricey.

Me--
Lemon oil for wood
Bon Ami (.87 at store) or Old Dutch cleanser ($1 at Dollar Tree--BIG can)they get stains out of my sink better than baking soda, etc.
Cover Girl Lash exact mascara (I don't use much else anyway)
Vo5 (the regular hairdressing in a tube, but Walgreens has the larger jar of it for 1/2 the price per ounce)--allows me to use the very cheapest shampoo (and no conditioner) and still have nice hair.
Pedigree dog food and name brand treats (COUPONS!)
Fels Naptha soap bar for laundry stains (gets out stains SOO much better than sprays and lasts forever.)I rub a wet scrub brush over the bar and brush the stain.
