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.

Sanitary - Kotex
Coffee - Robert Timms
Tea - nerada (Australian grown, no pesticides)
Toilet paper - Quilton
Dish washing liquid - morning fresh
