Shannon is asking us to share our favorite brands today. Recently I was grocery shopping with a girl friend, and she seemed shocked that I buy store brand chocolate chips. I often tell people that I am such a penny-pincher that I am not really that loyal to many brands, BUT there are just some luxuries a girl can’t live without.
Tide (with Bleach in Original Scent, thank you very much) – If I could make this thing smell, I WOULD make it smell just like that! And you would know why I look for and pay more for this particular Tide! And while it really is secondary in my book, but the stuff WORKS! Our whites are white, and our brights are bright. We invest so much in clothes; why not treat them well?
Also I love me some Comet bathroom cleaner! NO!!! not the powdery stuff that is ew! I mean the spray on stuff that rocks when it comes to gettin’ rid of hard water stains, especially since we bought this new-house-with-clear-glass-shower-doors-what-were-we-thinking!
And last, but certainly not least, I am thrilled to be able to splurge on Smuckers Natural Peanut Butter (Can you say no hydrogenated oils, people! Yet it’s not as expensive as many of the organic brands, some of which have hydrogenated oils, and yes, I know that it seems somehow odd that I am willing to let the pesticides kill my loved ones while keeping them safe from the oh-so-threatening oils!) and Smuckers Low Sugar Jelly (not the No Sugar stuff with fake sweeteners, LOW sugar).
** I wrote this last night, but I’m going to edit to add, just like Shannon, I believe that Sherwin Williams paint is worth a plug. Their good stuff gets a room painted in only one coat! And that, my friends, means I use half as much time and half as much paint to get the room done!
