Have you noticed?

Have you noticed how some companies are sneakily downsizing their products and/or containers, yet not lowering (possibly even raising) the prices, hoping we wouldn't notice? Like, for example ice cream... a lot of the cartons that used to be half gallons are not half gallons anymore, yet they don't look all that much different. You have to read the labels to be sure.

And look what I discovered the other day!

Something just didn't look right about that roll on the holder. Then I wondered. Then I dug an empty roll out of the wastebasket. Same brand. (Quilted Northern, as a matter of fact.) Uh huh! They didn't get that one past me!

I just had to rant. It's been bugging me! Was it nice to have a rant about something besides our weather lately? Our weather has actually been quite tolerable the last couple of days, so I couldn't rant about it today. ;-)

Have you noticed downsizing in your purchases? Leave me a comment!

I might need the top one for my posterior.
