So you've most likely noticed that the size of things is decreasing while the cost for things is increasing. How is that even legal? We are being ripped off and there's really not much we can do about it. I hate that! How are we suppose to get by with this going on?
We know that everything costs more-if you find products that are are the same as they always were AND cost the same - please comment here and I'll highlight that product in a big way.
So here are some examples of just a few things that I have noticed.
Toilet paper roll size: Toilet paper rolls were always 4.5" wide - I mean as far back as I know - that's the size they always were. Now go and measure your toilet paper roll - should come in around 4.1" wide. To make the matter more annoying - the price has gone up.
Peanut Butter: So now go and look at the bottom of your peanut butter jar. Notice that it's hollowed out at the bottom. The price has gone up but we are getting less product.
Cheerios: I just bought Cheerios after not purchasing it for a long time. Is it me or have the Cheerios gotten really small?
Coffee: Ok in the "old" days, when you bought coffee - you bought a pound and that was it. Always - it was a pound. Now you're getting 10 ounces, 12 ounces but never a full pound and all for more $!
Hey I could go on and on about this because it pisses me off. What can we do? We gotta eat! But at least shop around and get the best deal you can.
COMMENT AND TELL ME OF MORE PRODUCTS THAT ARE SHRINKING!
It's me, just trying to get by.
