I have reduced my use of manufactured products so much that I hardly use any of the branded products that I would have used 20 years ago.
I make my own cleaners and grow my own fruit and veg which I bottle, preserve, freeze etc. I don't bake bread,biscuits and cakes like I used to so I don't need the flour,sugar and shortening that I would have once used.
Powdered milk and rolled oats are much of a muchness as far as brand is concerned. I do tend to buy milk with murray goulburn provinance though because I believe the dairy farmers are being crushed by cheap milk wars.
I really do not want to spend money at the supermarket unless it really truly is something I cannot produce myself. I have affection for old brands but that is all
