We all have our favorites - things that we could do without but wouldn't want to. Here are a few of mine. What would be on your list?

Folgers coffee. I have had all the others. I have had a zillion coffee grinders and twice that many gourmet beans in all types. I have ground and measured and fiddle-effed-around with my coffee type for years - mostly through my forties. Now - just give me pre-ground Folgers.

I want a down blanket on my bed...summer or fall. I love the lightweight feel but warmth at the same time. I think my early years of unheated bedrooms and seventy-five pounds of home made quilts at my grandmothers house are the much weight, I felt like I couldn't move. However, no matter what type of down blanket I choose, the feathers still make their way and then. I guess a few feathers stuck to my kitties is a small price to pay, eh?

Arm and Hammer Peroxi-Care toothpaste. I can't handle that sweet crap - especially at four am.

Almond milk - not the sweet vanilla stuff, but the original almond milk in the dairy case. I just don't like the taste of cows milk, but oh I love my almond milk.

Life cereal. Like Mikey - it's my favorite. Oh-and Quaker oatmeal. I eat my weight in oatmeal each month.

I have been a Mary Kay skin care user since I was seventeen. Mostly, it cannot be beat. However, I have just fallen in love with an olive oil face cleanser from DHC. The jury is still out on whether it will be long term or not.

My napkins, paper towels and kleenex have to be white. I hate colors and patterns for these items.

I am addicted to Gain laundry products. And dishwashing liquid.

Febreeze scented kitchen garbage bags. Love these!

Gala apples. I don't much care for the others -- and clementine oranges. YUM.

Avon's skin so soft gelled body oil. Ahhh....

Enough. I could go on forever, but this is enough. Do you use any of the same products?

I like Fuji apples for their tartness and I can eat my weight in Clementine’s.

Wow...we have a lot of the same favorites! I used Mary Kay also since my early 20's. Then a few years ago I discovered DHC also and I fell in love with what it did for my skin. The cleansing oil ritual is just wonderful. The olive oil is something I will never be without. Also the Q10 for overnight. I use Bobbi Brown makeup now (tinted moisturizer and "Face Base") and her gel eyeliner is wonderful. All of her products last a very long time...a little goes a long way. Gain (original scent) is my favorite detergent....I love the fragrance. I also get Febreeze in the Gain fragrance. As for toothpaste, I use Sensodyne foaming (comes in a can, not a tube)...never have my teeth felt so clean! Trick is to use a very small amount. Great post.

I like your choice for "F". I'm only with you with the whites. I think favorites would be a good blog subject for me. I'll have to remember. What is DHC?

How was your day? Hope there was a "H" for happy in it. Now how corny was that???

I'm a big fan of almond milk and gala apples, too. :O)

I am not a coffee drinker so that puts the Folgers out of the running.

The napkins, I'm just the opposite..give me color, color, color.

We should all have our Faves!!
