I am so glad to be typing at you after 5 days with a respiratory flu! How awesome it is to feel better after being sick!
Unfortunately, not everyone here is healthy yet. The Girl is still running fever, but for the moment she is content.
I haven't done a random poll in a several months now. This month's poll will focus on Generic products.
Almost 9 months ago we bought this house and had to stock it with all the necessities. Things like cleaning products, toilet paper and chocolate.
On that fateful shopping trip I made the bad decision to go with generic toilet paper and I have regretted it ever since. Unfortunately, not only was it cheap, but it was very rough, very thin, and there seemed to be an unending supply of it.
I ended up buying better toilet paper and just putting the generic TP in the bathrooms every once in awhile. I figured that if everyone was getting the generic TP every other roll, they would only complain half as much.
As I type, the last roll is in my bathroom. I can't tell you how many times I have wished I had a toddler in my house right now who might go into the bathroom and destroy that roll of paper. It's like the never-ending roll.
You know, life is short, I've decided paying for decent toilet paper is something I can live with.
So what about you? Do you buy generic products? Which items have you learned are better paying a premium for?
