Today was a perfect example when I bought Christie's Goodie Ring cookies. I immediately noticed the bag I once got that I thought was 350-400 g was now a box and had gotten about half the size smaller than what it used to be, yet the cost remained the same.
Getting back home, I looked at a few other items, joking to Gerry that the Kraft Cheez Whiz used to be 500 g and I bet it was 400 g now. Upon actually looking at it, I saw it was 450 g. So it had actually downsized.
So what can we do? Unfortunately little. But we can become smarter shoppers. Buying clearance/ reduced products, shopping sale flyers, combining coupons with sales, buying in bulk, and more.
What are YOU doing to fight the war on high food costs?
