    I usually buy the brands I know. I go by what they look like though so couldn't tell you what brands.

    The only brand I know and am a snob about is Dairy Farmers. If there is a product I need and Dairy Farmers makes it, I will buy it.

    We have to stick to certain brands out of necessity from allergies so ingredients drive the choice, not brands. Own brands often have less nasty ingredients anyway, eg Aldi rice cakes and coles brand cornflakes and rice bubbles.

    There are a couple of things I won't compromise on though. It must be Watties beans, free range grain fed eggs, Aloe Vera tissues and unscented loo roll and DEFINITELY no cheap sausages or burgers (they just make me gag yuck!). And I can't stand cheap cheese!

    I like five am yoghurt.

    I buy sacla if I am buying pesto.

    A2 or Riverina Fresh Milk.

    Eco organic eggs if I can't get fresh ones from mum.

    No preferences anywhere else, I do most of my shopping at aldi so use aldi brands, and get my meat from a butcher and my fruit and veg from a green grocer.

    I only use woolies or coles for the above things.

    Oh and i use cloth wipes and nappies, but if I use sposies, I use Naty. Anything else gives little dude rashes.

    I don't like supporting the "big" name brands (this includes home brand and the supermarket chain brands) as I generally find them unethical, and quite often they have more chemicals and preservatives in their items, which DD reacts to. I use the "shop ethical" app and always try to buy smaller brands and check the ingredients for additives and preservatives.

    I'm not too fussy but there are some certain brands I like.

    Nappies - baby love
    Sanitary - Kotex
    Coffee - Robert Timms
    Tea - nerada (Australian grown, no pesticides)
    Toilet paper - Quilton
    Dish washing liquid - morning fresh
    Chocolate - Cadbury or Lindt
    Tissues - Kleenex aloe Vera
    Baked beans - Heinz

    There's probably more but that's all I can think of now!

    Peanut butter - Kraft
    Spaghetti/baked beans - Heinz
    Tomato sauce - Heinz ketchup
    BBQ - master foods
    Jam - st dalfours red raspberry conserve
    Butter - devondale soft
    Wraps - mission flavoured
    Tea bags - Lipton
    Air freshener - Glen 20 linen crisp
    Toilet paper - Kleenex cottonelle
    Tissue - Kleenex aloe Vera
    Toothpaste - original Colgate total

    Anything else I'll buy whatever is cheapest at the time.

    So do you have items you won't stray from?? (I don't buy all of these things regularly but if I do that's what I buy).
    Haha I love this!

    I only buy Sortbent Hypo Allergenic toilet paper, Colgate total tooth paste, Vegemite and Nutella the real stuff (no take offs!), Western Star butter, Pura milk

    Yes, I am.

    I won't write all the food items as I would be here for a while, but I do have to buy the following:

    Murchison-Hume, for my cleaning-dusting products (love the 'Juniper Berry' Furniture Spritzer).

    Morning Fresh, dish washing detergent

    Finish, Dishwasher Tablets

    Chux, cloths

    Twinings, Assam Bold and Irish breakfast Tea

    Purity, Clothes wash

    Kleenex Tissues

    Cobram Estate Olive Oil
