Down-sizing; Not just for jobs anymore!
Bought a pound of coffee lately - I doubt it. Historically, coffee was sold in 1- & 3-lb. cans. Now they sell a little more than 1/2 that and often disguise it by using the same-size cans as of old. Sugar has always been sold in 5- & 10 -lb. bags; now it's a 4-lb. bag. A pound pack of smoked sausage now weighs 13 oz.. What else has been downsized? Leave a comment!
Best of all - they charge more for the goods!
You get a third less and pay double from just a few years ago.
