What is the ONE thing that...

     You ABSOLUTELY can not live w/o.  With the economy the way it is I am of course picking up cheaper brands of things.  I have never really been a name brand shopper anyway.  But I was wondering if there was anything that you just won't replace with a no~name brand.

     For me it's ZIP LOCK freezer bags!!  Anytime that I get the store brand (different stores) I have a heck of a time getting the buggers closed.  I just love my zip lock bags!

My family is not big on name brands either, but there are 3 items I must have that are name brand.

lol yes Ziploc is great, however I only make it a must when it comes to freezing foods, if not then I can use another brand since I only use sealable bags for marinating or storage.

I can not go with out my Gain products. I esp love the Gain dishwashing liquid. I use to be a hardcore Palmolive fan since thats what my family has used since I was a child but I have noticed it doesnt clean as well anymore and Gain dish detergent is reasonable in price and works wonders. 

I also refuse to get non name brand toilet paper, omg I have tried with couponing and store sales and the cheaper brands can clog up the toilet and shred easily causing messes and fustration. So we use Cottonelle in my home.

I also must have Hefty garbage bags or Glad brand. I hate using the cheaper brands of trash bags because they leak, tear, and cause more messes for me

For my family we have several must haves. Bounty paper towels, I have gotten cheaper one but end up using twice as many to get the mess cleaned up ( I have very you kids so they spill a lot of drinks). Ziplock is another one! We buy them at Sam's so I only have to buy them a few times a year. And the last thing is Kraft Mac and Cheese---if we do store bought mac and cheese.

Must have good quality curry paste. Red and green inthe fridge all the time. Must have a good mortar and pestle. Must have several stones for keeping the knives sharp.

 A1 steak sauce, baby rays bbq sauce, and velveeta.  Other than that I'll go with what is the better deal, what I have coupons for, and I'm not a brand name person either.

Diet Pepsi is a must! Brand name dishwashing liquid - not too specific, but NOT generic. Finish dishwasher tabs.
