What do you NEVER skimp on?

    This is a slight variation of the refill/not refill post...

    At the Sconnie household, there are three things you will NEVER find...

    Non-JIF peanut butter

    Non-Charmin toilet paper

    Non-Heinz ketchup

    Are there any other products where you MUST have a certain brand?

    Agreed about toilet paper. I never compromise on it, no matter how poor I am.

    Tortilla chips. It's Tostitos or bust.

    I also have a weird thing about my shampoo. I've been using the same kind for over 20 years, and last year they changed the formula, and it's just not the same. I drove around buying up the old stuff before it disappeared, and I have like 15 bottles of it.

    And steak. If you're going to have a steak, have a good one. Otherwise you're sitting there eating some bland piece of flank and wishing you were eating a real steak.

    I got over the shampoo thing.
    Toilet paper has never been an issue. My son is like you guys. He HAS to have his brand, to the point where he brings it when he comes to visit.

    Don't get off-brand frozen burger patties. They cook up fail. But for most everything else, store brands are perfectly fine and hellaciously less expensive.

    I don't often skimp on beer. Maybe when I'm having a lot of people over, or slamming a few before a softball game or something, but almost no matter when else -- in a bar, by myself, with a few friends -- I'll splurge.

    Brand isn't really an issue with me... the aloe vera in the paper? Non-negotiable.
