Have you noticed that while the price of almost everything seems to be going up, the size seems to be coming down. I noticed soft drinks in a 20 pack the other day and they were more than I usually pay for a 24 pack.
Remember when most sugar was sold in 5 pound bags? Now, while there are still some 5 pound bags around, most are 4 pounds.
I opened a new bar of soap last night and thought . . this is smaller than it used to be. Then I found an older pack of soap and look at this . .
Not only did the 12 pack of Dial soap shrink to an 8 pack, for the same price, but now the bars are 4.0 ounces instead of 4.5 ounces.
Guess there’s not much we can do about it but be aware of the sizes of whatever we’re buying and compare prices per item or per ounces.
