WFMW: Brand Loyalty

I am a frugal shopper, but there are some items that I do not compromise on:

  • King Arthur flour
  • Joseph's pita bread
  • Heinz ketchup
  • Hunts tomato sauce (which also happens to be the cheapest option as well)
  • Nabisco Wheat Thins
  • Huggies diapers
There are other items for which we have a strong brand preference, but can't justify the price differential:
  • Stoneyfield yogurt ($3.99/pint vs $1.69 for store brand)
  • Maple Grove salad dressings ($3 vs $0.99 for Ken's)
  • freshly ground parmesan cheese ($7.99/lb vs $5.49 for Kraft)
  • Pampers wipees
....and on the rare occasion that I buy a cup of coffee instead of making it myself, I buy it at Dunkin Donuts. I just can't understand why anybody pays $4 for the *&^% they sell at Starbucks.

Otherwise, I buy as cheap as possible, as natural as possible, and as local as possible.

If you want to see which brands other people are loyal to, check in on Rocks in my Dryer for Works for me Wednesday.

I've been adding as I remember more products that I am snobby about.

I found it on the Flylady website. The image on my blog is pulling directly from there, so you can find out where I got it by right-clicking on it and selecting "properties."
