How to get less for the dollar.

They call it shrinkflation. Ever hear of it? It’s when a packaged product is reduced in size or weight but sold at the old price. No price reduction but quantity reduction instead. For a recent example you probably have noticed a roll of toilet paper has become a half inch narrower but sold at itsContinue reading “How to get less for the dollar.”

Lets do a little A and B’ing.

So, let’s compare. Let’s compare party policy or as they use to say, platforms. Comparing what Republicans want from an election and their candidates versus the Democrat proposed policies or party platform and their candidates.

The more you pay the less you get.

Have you noticed this? Or am I the only one? They call it ‘Shrinkflation.” An example of shrinkflation is my granola bar I have been eating for years. My oat and walnut crunchy granola bar that I pay about a dollar for use to be about four and a half inches long. But after aboutContinue reading “The more you pay the less you get.”
