As many of you know I am a mom of four (and counting). Our life can be a little hectic, crazy and well just plain messy! I am not a huge brand name person for MOST items. But there are a few items I feel MUST be name brand and well let me honest they NEED to the one specific name brand I use exclusively in my household!
These name brand specifics are items everyone in my family uses every single day. Without these items my house would just not run smoothly. The first name brand item I must have in my home is of course P&G at Costco! We have tried to go off brand but it is just not the same. I feel my kids do so much better at not wasting gobs of toilet paper (or worse clogging the toilet using too much) whenever we have Charmin Ultra Soft in the house. It is so thick, soft and well just perfect to the touch!
The next specific name brand item we use exclusively in our home is Bounty Advanced paper towels. Again I have tried to go off brand before, but other brands just don’t work the same. Bounty Advanced is incredibly thick and reliable. I have noticed when it comes to cleaning up kids sticky messes you just can’t go cheap! It’s the small things that make a big difference when it comes to household needs. Bounty has the awesome option to select a size sheet. Meaning if you need only a half sheet of paper towel to clean up a smaller mess you don’t have to waste, by using a larger full sized sheet. I also love that I can fully wet my Bounty Advanced paper towels in order to clean up a sticky mess and the paper towel holds its strength. Bounty Advanced has helped me get through many of gluey-sticky crafts, messy play dates, some of my family’s favorite kid-help recipes.
When it comes to the next two items I feel are must have name brand products, let me give you a hint by saying my laundry would never be the same without these items. The first must have laundry item is my Gain Original laundry detergent. I love how fresh it makes my laundry smell, how efficient it is at getting our clothes clean and it works fantastically in our high efficiency washer. The next item pairs perfectly with the Gain Orginal laundry detergent, Downy Unstopables. This item is a bit newer to our must have list, however with so many kids in the house and being such a busy mom I have to be honest, there are way too many times that I have allowed the laundry to sit too long in the washer. When I use Downy Unstopables it not only gives our clothes a fresh feeling, but it also has such a strong (beautiful) fragrance, that it allows me a little grace when it comes to getting to my laundry in a timely matter.
When it comes to my must have name brand items I am sure you have notices all 4 of these items are Procter & Gamble products and they can all be purchased at Costco. That’s because Procter & Gamble products from Costco are the best. P&G focuses on the details of their products. Each product is made with the utmost thought and quality. I am so thankful these products can be purchased in larger amounts at Costco, because as a large family we go through these everyday basics quickly. To be honest I don’t know that I could run my household as efficiently without these must have items I purchase at Costco. I am incredibly thankful to have found products that feel like they were made specifically for my family and keep my household going on both the good days and the bad.
