Last thread for tonight - promise.

Why is it that some things we can buy the cheap stuff and others it has to be the real deal.

For example
I have to buy Kelloggs Cornflakes. I can't eat the supermarket own brand. My ex always had to have Cadbury's drinking chocolate.

Foodstuffs to a certain extent I understand, because something else just doesn't taste right.

But paint? I knew somebody once who would only buy Dulux. It's not like once it's on the wall you can see the label.

I realise this is an old old old old thread but i'm resurrecting it because i need to warn you all that, however hard up you are, 29p for 80 Smartprice teabags just don't measure up to Tetleys teabags.

Quality means you need far less quantity.

I only ever use Dulux.

I go shopping with my auntie every Friday, she will only buy Andrex or Dulux toilet roll. Yes it is of good quality, but as I am always telling her, Jesus, your only wiping your ass
I on the other hand either get 6 rolls for a quid from the pound shop or economy bog roll which is less than a quid but feels like sand paper.

My mum seen my shopping once, all blue n white economy stuff. She asked me if I was ever embarrassed at the till???????????????
I just laughed at her and said 'mum I don't give a fcuk '

maybe that would be a good way to view our postings on the forums ..as in quality of our remarks, not the quantity of them . .

I tend to buy quality products, as they work out better than for money, however things like value produce I sometimes buy, so what if a carrot is a bit mis-shapen, it still tastes like a carrot.


But paint?


Arghh.... Bad memories, doing undercoating once, and thought as no one will see it, I will just buy the cheapest I can get. It was like painting with water, got in such a mess, and it need a couple of coats instead of one.

I buy a lot of Asda own Brand, but i tried their cornflakes they did not come up to standard as the kelloyggs, their Weetabix on the other hand were just as good. I have a budget to work on so i go for the cheaper brands.

Same go for clothes I don't go for branded names, even though I do have some branded named clothes, I go for clothes that fit me mostimes.

I'm not sure about paint as i don't do DIY !!!
