  • Fun question!

    Toilet paper, paper towels, cereal (only because the boxes and bags tear up when you open them!)

  • Beer... No just kidding! I use just about everything "Store Brand" except Jergens lotion, Helmanns Mayo & Arm & Hammer laundry Detergent. Sometimes store brand coffee is too acidic so I buy a name brand which ever is on sale. I like Maxwell House. Good Question!!
