  • Tuna, pasta, soda, bread, and any frozen foods. T.p. I don't care but my DH wants the most expensive so I hunt down coupons. Baby food I really don't buy anymore I rather make it fresh.

  • coke/pepsi, toilet paper, laundry detergent, cheese

  • Mac and Cheese definitely.  I don't like the taste of any other brand other than Velveeta.  Soda is another definite.  Laundry detergent, I'm obsessed with Tide Febreeze.
