Same with those cheap Totinos pizzas. They are crap but a decent lunch. Used to be alot bigger. The box is the same size but the pizza has gotten much smaller over the years.

As a result, I'm cutting back everywhere including food. I quit drinking beer and Pepsi. Coffee reduced to one cup of decaf. Basically 2 meals a day now. Now they're going to get less money.....

I just hate this about Dinty Moore beef stew! Did you know that because of the lining inside the can (the old ones anyway) those things have a shelf life almost as good as Spam?

Dump a can of it over a big bowl of rice and you can feed quite a few people.

Re: Dinty Moore beef stew smaller can
I've noticed that beef shortribs are almost NEVER "on sale" anywhere; happily, they're not much higher lately either. If you can find shanks of any kind of meat (I think the grocers are keeping them for themselves...) they are excellent for stews and usually not expensive compared to chops. What's special about those shortribs is that a few of them will flavour a whole pot of rice or potatoes. In winter, take advantage of your constantly-going wood stove or gas oven on low heat: put everything in a pot and slow cook all night or day. For you youngsters and grid-dependent of all ages: the crock pot is one of the world's most useful modern inventions. Make your own, OP.

We feel your pain about those grocery prices creeping up. Until we can tar and feather all the Congress-critters and uproot the corruption that's infested the entire government and business community, we simply have to outsmart the system by drawing on the creativity and intelligence that God gave us. We have all been through this before; perhaps we can at least take some comfort in that. We came through to write the book of modern history only because we were so damned hard to kill off.

BUT .... The 'good news' IS ..... The amount of radiation fallout taken UP by the food has NOT diminished in quantity or quality in either 2011 or 2012 crops.

Eat hardy; drink more fallout, and BREATH deeply. It shortens what LITTLE time you have left here on Earth !

Campbell's has changed V8. now it's like you dumped out half a bottle, filled it with ice and let it melt.

it used to coat the side of a cup when you drank it, now it barely adheres at all.

Same thing happened with a non-food item, Pert shampoo. They thought making the bottle wavy would take attention away from the fact that they'd changed the ounceage.

More interesting, though, is the logo. Here's one guy's take on a few logos, including Pert's:
