Generic or brand name

Last question for the day. I reached my quota.
What do you refuse to buy generic?

For me it would be

laundry detergent
fabric softener
dish soap
dog food
cat food
cat litter

I think that is it but I'm probably forgetting something:)

  • DH has whined several times about me getting Gain laundry detergent and Febreze air freshener. BUT when he got some funky off brand laundry detergent and air freshener one day, he admitted that they didn't smell as good and the smell didn't last as long. LOL. I also only get Miracle Whip, Dawn Dish washing Liquid, and Folgers Coffee.

  • It's a must for Huggies. TP has it's priority too lol. Hubby likes a certain tooth paste and he must have his AXE shower gel. I'm starting to use coupons so I'll get what I can afford most of the time, but I'm aiming for specific coupons when I can lol. Though, ,my home food HAD to be generic...Hill Country Fair was a generic label for the grocery store and nothing tasted better lol. Oh and A MUST MUST ABSOLUTE MUST...It's gotta be Dr. Pepper. Not dr thunder or Mr. Pibb, but Dr. Pepper lol.
