Just Can't Do It. [Part 2]

You may remember my post from a few weeks ago, talking about the grocery store and things I just can't sacrifice to save a dollar. 

I loved how so many of you felt the same way about Coca Cola products... Pepsi is NO substitute.

So I'm doing another list today... 

Here are a few things that I just cannot sacrifice:

1. Heinz Ketchup   
      - Hunts is just watery. Heinz is the best recipe, and the only way to go if you're slapping it on a hamburger bun or hotdog. In my humble opinion.

 2. Crest toothpaste
     -  Since Mama has been couponing... we've been forced to try other brands since you practically get Colgate toothpaste for free. But friends, we've decided you get Colgate for close to free because that's the only way they can sell the stuff. It does not leave your mouth feeling as fresh as Crest. :) Gotta have fresh breath.

3. Mayonnaise
     - I'm not a big mayo fan, but if I'm going to have it.. it better be Blue Plate or Duke's. The other stuff really makes me want to gag.

4. Toilet Paper
    -I'm not necessarily picky about toilet paper BRANDS, but I can't do the el cheapo stuff. Answer this for me: Why do they even make 1 ply? It takes ten years to get enough off the roll to be the equivalent of a thick square of toilet paper.

Let's just leave it to ellen to explain the Toilet Paper madness:

Now let's hear what you just can't sacrifice!
I like to hear y'alls so I know I'm not crazy!

o my god I completely agree about the mayo!

Megan said...

Girl we are the same person! I thought we couldn't get any more alike after your last list, but this does it!

Hunts ketchup makes me want to vom. There's no replacing Heinz. I'm a total toothpaste snob too! I use Crest Advanced White and I can't use anything else!

And oh my, the toilet paper thing gets me every time. I can't stand cheap, one-ply toilet paper. Get outta here with that stuff.

Love, love your lists!!

Michelle said...

I agree with you on the ketchup! And toilet paper - how people can use the cheap stuff is beyond me!

Oh my gosh I LOVE that Ellen show! My bff has the dvd of this stand-up routine and we're CONSTANTLY quoting it!

Also, I'm a Crest 3D White fan, but boyfriend buys the prohealth kind and I always tease him because it has little crunchy things in it. Plus mine tastes better. :)

Sarah said...

I agree with all of these! Especially the toilet paper. I will pay more to get my Charmin! I have a prescription toothpaste that I actually LOVE. It's super fluoride filled, but before I had it I used Crest ALL the way!

Jess said...

I agree with the toilet paper. I also love my k-cups even if they are more expensive and fresh fruit.

Neely said...

Toilet paper for sure!!! Organic fruit and veggies and meat. Shampoo!

Jordan said...

That's funny about the Ketchup! 2 weeks ago my mom bought Hunts instead of Heinz and my dad had her get Heinz last week because he doesn't like Hunts! ;)

Lauren said...

I completely agree with the Mayonaise and ketchup. Yuck, other brands make me gag! :)

Mrs. Monologues said...

I am the same way. There are certain things I cannot sacrifice on. I am all about the discounts, I have to draw the line somewhere.

I'm with you on the Heinz ketchup Leslie!
I think Colgate toothpaste must be made differently here in Europe because I find it leaves my mouth way fresher and cleaner feeling than Crest does.
Crest isn't available anymore here in Ireland but I was in the US last year on vacation and brought some home with me because I heard it really whitens your teeth.
I didn't find it as effective as our Colgate though! Colgate is pretty expensive here too.

wish you lots of success

I can't even believe they sell other brands of mayonnaise! Duke's is the way to go!

Heather said...

I HAVE to have good toilet paper, none of that disengrate in your hand stuff! I also have to have good ice cream....the generic tastes like freeze burn. Blech.

I wish I had the will-power for food politics. If so, I'd never spend another penny on Heinz ketchup, lining the pockets of John Kerry. But seeing as how I'm weak & would rather eat bark than Hunt's, my love for Heinz remains. Sigh ;)

Also, every time a debate ensues about toilet paper I always think of the "Can't spare a square" Seinfeld episode with Elaine - hilarious! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZL-FDxT1rGA
