I used a yr or two old recipe the other day and went to get my 10 oz can of crescent rolls that I always use...just to find out that now it is only 8 oz can. So am hoping the recipe turns out ok..but seriously this is f'd up. [/quote] Oh, this is going on all across the board. I get these healthy energy bars from the health food store (not the supermarket junk ones). The bar used to fill up the wrapper. Now when I buy them, you can shake the wrapper and the bar will slide back and forth inside... because it's SMALLER! They kept the same size wrapper and made the bar smaller and it's so obvious because it movess around in the package with all the extra room!!! [/quote] Yea its sneaky and discouraging. And NO my wages have not went up to compensate..as another poster suggested. LOL that would be nice though. [/quote]
1st thing I noticed, my wife and I have hardly changed anything about our buying and eating habits.
The 2nd thing I noticed was the crazy incrases we have had in prices.
1 can Campbells Vegetable soup was listed as $0.89
We now pay $2.19 for the same can.
Fresh Haddock Fillets were $3.99lb. Now $7.99lb.
4 litres of Skim Milk was $4.59...now $7.59.
1 loaf of whole wheat bread was $.99...now $2.99.
Fresh Green Pepper was $1.99lb...now $3.99lb.
Canned tomato juice was $0.99 a can...now $2.29 a can.
Obviously there was waaaaay more on the recipt, but I just can't believe the inflation. I'm sure many people have had to stop buying items the are used to buying, and change their life styles a great deal. I have not gotten to that point yet, but I'm feeling the pinch. It sucks.
Changes are needed.
