What is the ONE thing that...

Posted by   + Show Post

     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!

 I don't care about most things, but my MUST haves:  Crisco, Dawn dishwashing soap, Arm & Hammer laundry detergent, Hungry Jack pancake mix.  Everything else is pretty much whatever's on sale.

I can't substitute Heinz ketchup, Hellman's mayo or Kraft cheese slices.

We have about five of each of the different sizes, and we regularly use them.  They are so great for storing leftovers.  We've tried non-name brand containers, but the lids just don't stay on as well.  Plus, having lids that interlock is great.  With other food storage containers, we frequently misplace lids.
