Annapolis Md Homes and More: Brand Loyalty Means Creature Comforts To Me

Brand Loyalty Means Creature Comforts To Me

Brand Loyalty Means Creature Comforts To Me


When ones life is being a wife, mother, grandmother, Realtor, business owner, gardener, hiker, blogger and whatever else I have my hands and mind into at any given moment its all about the little things in life that make my life better, not to mention easier. And it's these creature comforts that make me a better person both personally and professionally and that all equates to a happier me, happier family, and happier clients. You know what they say..... when Momma is happy everyone is happy. Well Momma is happy with these three brands.

Chock full of nutsChock full o'Nuts

Coffee- I did not start drinking coffee until my early 30's. A late bloomer for sure but when I started making coffee at home I knew I was hooked. It was then that I started trying the different brands. Over time I became loyal to Chock full o'Nuts. I love the aroma, the perfect amount of caffeine and the way it tasted whether I made 1 cup or 5 cups. There is real comfort that comes from knowing how good it is no matter what or when or where. Family, friends and clients have all complimented on its flavor. 

Scotts Toilet paperScotts Toilet Paper

Toilet Paper- This probably sounds silly but when you live in home serviced by a private septic tank and not public sewer you learn the tricks of the trade to keep your tank in good operating condition and your bun's clean at the same time. One of those tricks is the type of toilet paper one uses. Scott is made to work beautifully in that regard and though not the softest bun wiper out there it certainly is not the worse either. Working the Anne Arundel County real estate market I see a lot of homes on a septic tank so its nice to have experience with them to help those clients who have none.

CharlieCharlie Cologne

Cologne- I have started to get nervous when I go looking for my favorite cologne called Charlie. I have been wearing it forever. It seems to have the ability to work with my skin type perfectly. So many compliments and a great conversation starter. I am buying 2 bottles at a time now and looking more often to make sure it is still available. Charlie and I have been BFF's since 1972. I would be devastated if he went away.


So there they are ......

those wonderful creatures of comfort

that make my day awesome.

Thanks Ron & Alexander Seigel for you're great idea

in regards to Brand Loyalty. It was fun

It is funny how we latch onto some brands and almost cry if they go away.

Martha love your pics! I didn't know that about Scott - good info to have for our clients on spectic systems.  I haven't seen Charlie label for a long time but I sure remember the ads!   I'll see if I can find it next time I'm out.

Hi Martha - we know at our house too that things go more smoothly when Momma is Happy!  Great choices.  We'll have to try Chock full o' Nuts.  Thanks!  John and Kat

I used to wear Charlie's as well but switched a few years ago to Light Blue. It's interesting that women tend to be very loyal to their preferred fragrances.
