3 Brands I Must Have

3 Brands I Must Have


Once again it's near the end of the month and I'm sitting here writing my entry for the March Challenge on Active Rain.  Following are three of my favorite items. Must haves for my household.  Brand loyalty, does it make a difference?   Yes.  Ever visited a store and not find the exact items needed?


First and foremost, the most important item on my list would be treats for my furry friend. The little one that that lives inside our house and makes more noise than you could imagine if her cookie jar is empty.  


GOOD 'N' FUN Dog Treats.. We refer to these as Umi Snacks.

Umi Snacks

 These natural beef & pork hide  chews are available in a variety  of  flavors.  We only  purchase the  duck and chicken kabobs. Why?  She refuses to eat any other flavor.  I keep these  stashed away in case  she is out of  her  homemade  healthy treats.    


Aldi is my all time favorite store for produce, healthy breads and dairy products.  


Aldi - Coconut Oil

Love Aldi's!  Great prices on  everyday  products. Usually I  come across non food  seasonal  items also at discounted prices.  They offer some of the best  weekly sales  and specials on a  variety of groceries. They stock  their own select brands - some  which are my favorite. Adli  stores are always clean with  friendly employees. I never leave home without my Aldi quarter and a few canvas bags. If you are not familiar with the store you could purchase bags or pack your items in available boxes.  This brand of coconut oil is one of my most frequesnt purchases.  I have two or three jars open at all times.    


 Since I'm choosing only three brands tonight I have to add AT&T / Android


Specifically Android products.  Never had an Iphone or Apple product.  In my house you will only find Android phones, pads and my trusted laptop runs on Android.  For years I've trusted chrome and find it works best on my Android products.  I'm actually in the market for a new phone.  It's a difficult choice.  

Brands - ATT

We are looking to find my wife a new phone too.  Might have her use my Samsung Galaxy 6 and find a new phone for me.  Looking at dual sim phones so I can get 2 numbers without having to carry 2 phones.

Those dog treats - nothing else works. I should buy stock in this brand.  Maybe there is not an Aldi near La Jolla.   Thomas J. Nelson, Realtor, CRS  once the first store opened near my daughters house I was hooked.

I love Aldi's too. Even though I'm loyal to Publix, whenever I need to stock up on produce, I head over to Aldi's. You can't beat their prices and their quarter cart strategy is ingenious.

I think the Samsung Galaxy S8 is being released today. I have the S7 and it's a great phone. Thanks for sharing.

The Aldi's concept is one that has other retailers concerned since it is the largest brand in Europe.  Keep it simple and get rewarded with savings is their principle and for people on tight budgets it works just fine.

I learned new brands thanks to your post.  We don't have Aldi's around here, but I do use coconut oil.  I love that your dog has to her faves, as does our cat.  Thank you so much for writing this post for our challenge.  A

We have an Aldi's and I always buy way more than I intended. The prices are terrific. I am not familiar with Android since I have been an iPhone user for almost 7 years now.
