Saving Money 101: The don't-go-cheap edition

By | 8:04 AM 7 comments
So, I mentioned in the last Saving Money 101 post that there are some things I just can't go cheap on.

For us those items include:

- Breakstone Cottage Cheese
- Diapers (Huggies or Pampers)
- Aveeno Lotion
- Bush's Baked Beans
- Toilet Paper
- Dove Conditioner

What about you? What items are a must have for your family...even without a sale or coupon?

You know mine! STARBUCKS COFFEE=) I can always find it on sale at ONE of my stores though, thank goodness!

I agree with you on the TP too!

Oreo Cookies and soft drinks... they just are not the same in the generic!

Toilet paper and Duke's mayo.

Charmin TP and all of my hair products have to be salon. Luckily my BFF works in a beauty supply store and I get the before mark-up price then her discount, so I pay less for Redkin than I would Suave.

Famous Amos Cookies (when you have to have them - there is no substitute!), Coffee, baby wipes, ketchup, tampons/pads (TMI?), ice name a few. I am with you on the Bush's beans too!!

Caribou or Bucks coffee...
I scored 360 Walgreens diapers through a Fatwallet deal for $44.88 with FREE SHIPPING and they worked just as good as the Huggies we used So I've added Walgreens diapers to the list...
