Brand N Generic

Starting at childhood, there are several Brand products that were required in our home. My Mother believed in Tide detergent, Crest toothpaste, Ivory soap (skin drying-smiling), fresh fish, and Kraft Mayo, to name a few. Not much has changed in my 40 plus years around our house since then. Tide, Crest, Clorox, Windex, and Noxzema always around are as well…. passed down. However, for 26 years now, we use only Hellmann’s Real Mayo – Life stops here for a sandwich just like the commercial. (smiling) So we make sure to buy at least 3 jars for backup placed in the pantry. Liquid Soft Soap, Glad trash bags, Ziploc baggies, Dawn Liquid, and most all Estee Lauder products besides a huge selection of perfumes of different brands. We totally live by varies brands of The Best Olive Oils, only local farm grown juicy tomatoes, and fresh bread and herbs followed by trying new coffees and wines.
Some Generic items are not a problem, suntan oil, an occasional soda in the cheap machine, fabric softeners, half and half, sugar, and a few drugs. Several others I could list, but can not think of them at the moment.

Which are your favorites in Brands and Generic products?
Tell me all you want, would love to hear about it. It may help me save money knowing other brands that work just as good.
P.S. If you get a chance check out my sister's hilarious blog on Walmart! . (removed)
