Hygeine products
Does it matter to you what brand of soap, shampoo, toothpaste, toilet paper, shaving cream, etc. you use?
Are you particular that way? Or do you use just whatever is cheaper or around?

toilet paper, razors, and shampoo I use a specific brand name. Everything else is usually store brand or cheapest available.

Whatever my wife buys.

I always test it for arsenic, though.

I don't go on the cheap for Toilet Paper and toothpaste.

Everything else is just cheapest....and use soap for shampoo.

Actually I am fairly brand specific, although the brand does have a tendency to change from time to time.

I have very dry skin, and slightly oily hair. Most soaps dry my skin out even worse, and a lot of shampoos either don't clean enough and my hair gets nappy by the end of the day, or they clean too much, and my hair gets dry and crunchy, and dandruff takes over. It's a bit of a balancing act, too, because after a while, my body will build up a tolerance and the soap or shampoo that I'm using will stop working as well as it did. That's when I switch brands. Skin lotion works the same way, sadly.

With toothpaste, I've found one with a flavor I like, so I stick with it. Toilet paper, I'll use most anything that comes in a double roll - except Cottonelle - for some reason their TP wants to disintegrate at inopportune times. AngelSoft usually seems to be the cheapest at most stores. With deoderant, again, I've found a brand that works pretty well and has a fragrance I like, so I pretty much stick to it.

I don't care, but the wife does. We pay top dollar, except for shaving cream for me.

Shampoo and toothpaste I'm picky about. Shaving cream and TP, not so much. I don't use anti-perspirant, so I'm pretty much stuck with Old Spice for deodorant, because all the other stuff is pretty bad. Soap is whatever Mrs. Rasp buys. She's pickier than I am.

All my stuff is brand specific. Gotta keep Neutrogena, John Frieda, Dove, Oil of Olay, Charmin, and Redken in business.

The only thing I really care about is the deodorant. I won't use a spray or anything with aluminum chlorohydrate. I also owe my youthful good looks to Olay Age Defying Body Wash.

Another one here that's brand specific when it comes to certain things: toothpaste, razors, shampoo, deodorant. My wife usually buys the soap/body wash, so I don't have a lot of control over that.

I would agree with you if that was all I bought at Costco. I've saved well over my $50 membership fee buying all sorts of other stuff.

Break even on Sam's or Costco memberships is usually about 10 minutes into the first visit.

I'm pretty brand-specific, too: Neutrogena body wash and lotion, Aveda shampoo and conditioner, Frieda styling products, Mentadent, Listerine, Charmin, Intuition razor. I also use philosphy skin care products for my face. Dorkboy uses whatever I buy, with the exception of soap. He's an Irish Spring guy. I once bought him some manly man skin-care stuff and he never used it.
