I buy generic for pretty much anything, but it has to be the generic from Tesco. I dont like the other stores generic.

As for brand names, I absolutely have to buy the same brand toothpaste (sensodyne), toilet paper (kitten soft), deodorant (mitchum), tea (barrys), coffee (kenco millicano), fabric softener (comfort exhillarations), kitchen paper (plenty)

I buy mostly generic! As for things that has to be brand named is brown sauce (not sure if those from the US know what that means - I will share a pic for those who are curious) but it absolutely has to be HP, because nothing else tastes the same or even close. Also toiler paper (Charmin) and toothpaste (Aquafresh).

I am brand specific with alot things like what we drink, shampoos/conditioners, some cleaners, bras, gosh I think I could go on and on...but I love to find good deals too. I just dont like when I find a nonbrand and then it fails me because I had high expectations.

Lindsey I think steak sauce is pretty similar to our brown sauce. And i totally agree, when i buy brown sauce (not often) it has to be brand name. I buy YR tho! Find it a bit spicy-er than the HP. BUt i do love HP too. Can never buy generic.

Most of the time I buy generic. I think Pepsi is the only MUST HAVE for me.

It doesn't matter to me on ketchup either, I only eat it on hamburgers. But dh is so picky with that and mayo. Oh and ketchup is not put in the refrigerator in our house either, I always grew up with it being in the fridge...


When we do have mac n cheese from a box, it has to be Kraft.
