I am far from materialistic. I do not own any designer jeans. Frankly, I don’t even think I can name a designer jean if my life depended on it. I wear make-up so infrequently that when I do my children ask what’s going on. I do not have any fancy purses or accessories. Come to think of it, I don’t think I have any high-end brand name apparel of any sort, period. As a matter of fact, I recently got teased for my outdated wallet. I recall buying it in my late teens, which means it’s at least 15 years old; yet I have never consider it as out-of-style. It’s functional and that’s all I need. That all being said, I am still quite snobby when it comes to particular items. These are the items I wish to share with you today for March’s First Friday Find(s). These are the items that if I could be a salesperson for them, I would sell the heck out of them. Which is saying a lot, if you recall the Commercial Break in my post Acquired Tastes Not Required.
Another thing that I am a snob about is raisins. This one makes my husband laugh since I don’t even really care for raisins in the first place. It’s not that I dislike them, I just don’t think to sit down to a box of them. However, if I am going to eat raisins, the only option is Sun Maid Raisins. I have undergone a rigorous taste test to prove that Sun Maid Raisins are way better than any generic brand you’ll save your pennies on. But, as previously mentioned, I’m not a huge raisin fan to begin with, despite my pro-raisin post on Meaningful Traditions. So, at the risk of being a hypocrite, I give to you a funny I have found during my many hours on Pinterest:
Another snobby product I support is high-end hair conditioners. I will gladly put Head & Shoulders in my hair for shampooing purposes, but I am adamant about putting high quality conditioner in my hair. I’m talking about the conditioners that can only be purchased in a salon. I switch it up from time to time, but right now I’m loving Evo Normal Persons Conditioner. My hair feels silky smooth and light. Plus, the intense smell of peppermint awakens my senses and eases my bouts with nausea during this pregnancy.
I have a few other products that I won’t settle for generic brands on, but I’ll stop myself now before I sound too much like an infomercial. I would love to hear what products you find yourself being a bit of a “snob” on. As I mentioned before, I am not materialistic, but some things are just better paying top dollar for top quality, while other items are the same exact thing just with a different label on them.
