My Mom used to drink soda all the time but now can't afford it simply because it has more than doubled in price for her favorite brand.
Tuna used to come in 6oz cans but now all are moving to 5oz cans for the same price or even priced higher than it was when it came with more tuna.
I almost found that funny since Tuna Helper calls for a 6oz can, but just try and find 6oz cans anymore
Lots of products are getting bigger dimples under the container. I noticed this on so many products that used to have almost flat bottoms but now have a huge indent so to look like it's the size it always has been until you pick it up and look at the bottom.
Even Coca Cola has got on the game. They are using new bottles to look rounded off like their smaller plastic bottles have for some time. Well I checked and found out they put less product in the bottle now. I was suspicious in the first place since the rounded "cooler" look seemed sleeker than all the other regular round 2 liter bottles and well I was right. They hold less than all the other brands do in the 2 liter bottles and they now increased the price. Heck they increased the price on all soda brands.
Not that soda is good for you or important, but I find it almost ludicrous that soda prices have gone up so much in the past few years that now you can buy some brands of beer cheaper than what it cost to buy soda.
Canned goods seem to keep going up EVERY time I go grocery shopping. It's getting ridiculous when they want $1.59 for even the crap store brands of corn and peas. Some of them costing almost double what they did
