Getting Less Food for Their Money as Companies Shrink Grocery Items - AARP Bulletin Today

This is theft. Plain and simple. To try and deceive me while taking my money...sounds like robbery to me!

We're lucky enough to have the time to shop and compare price and volume as we cruise the aisles of the market. But that's not how most people shop. Most people shop where they can get in and out in a hurry. But in these tough economic times, it might be wise to slow down and read the labels.

Hmmm, sounds like a good idea for a consumer website, one that does volume comparison shopping for you, and in your home area.

    Went to my Colleen's daughters birthday on Saturday and they ordered Pizza. You think you are getting your money's worth by the size of the box. Pizza prices seem reasonable, however a Large is now the size of medium and medium the size of a small. I know people are used to super sizing, but Pizza is going in the opposite direction, except for the box.

  2. Oh yes, went to Round Table (for the last time) and paid $25 for a medium sized 'Large'.

    We're making our own from Trader Joe's pizza dough or Papa Murphy's or Gas House (the last two are take and bake)
