What items in your house HAVE to be name brand?

Times are tough ladies, and not everyone can have all the items in their house name brand. What items ABSOLUTELY have to be name brand in your house and which ones do you use off brand? I'm not talking about clothes or shoes, just things you buy for house and food purposes.

Name brand items: laundry powder, all house cleaning agents, bath soap and feminine hygiene products, make-up, dish and dish washer soap, mayo, cheese, salad dressing (has to be hidden valley or wishbone italian), spaghetti sauce (must be prego), and jelly (has to be smuckers)



Off brand items: pasta noodles, cereal, canned biscuits, juice, sandwich bread.

Any other items could be either way.

For me?

Peanut butter.  Paper towels and TP.  I like Method cleaning products so I take a hit there.

But laundry detergent? Really happy with the Costco Kirkland brand.  I was shocked.

Toilet paper, tissues and paper towels.  

And, peanut butter.  Only JIF will do.

 Laundry detergent, dishwasher soap, spaghetti sauce, coffee creamer, make up, deodorant, yogurt, sour cream, cream cheese I think that's about it.
