Yes - for everything!
I prefer quality over cost. I even buy imported French butter as it makes baked goods taste that much better!
I think the only non-branded items I buy are the sponge metal scourers.
For food I stick to the principle that it's going in my body - I want the best! That said, we don't generally buy many processed foods. We mostly buy fresh foods, so shop regularly at the one butcher for all meat products and the farmers markets for fresh fruit and veg.

I am very flexible with pretty much everything - but with toothpaste it always has to be Colgate. And usually the whitening ones ... but otherwise Colgate regardless.
Oh and with cheese its always gotta be mainland tasty - or Coles home brand tasty. They're both the yummiest imo.

I'm a brand snob in that I never ever buy home brand, Woolies or Coles own brands.

Yes I'm very particular about all the brands of the products I buy, more so because I know whats in the brands I buy and where they come from.
