Pay more get less. The national news has mentioned this. Orange Juice is 59 ounces.
Posted by Maxine M


59 ounces is for the fresh squeezed, except for Trader Joe's where you still get 64 ounces.  Otherwise I believe that the made from concentrate is still 64 ounces.  But, if I want made from concentrate, I can buy the frozen kind and rehydrate it myself.

If you are able, stock up on products you use a lot. Down here in Texas, we get tomatos and other fresh vegies from the south and Mexico but, the recent weather wiped out most of the crops. Fresh tomatoes jumped today from $1.29 lb to almost $3.00 lb! So, if you want tomatos, buy up some canned ones.

I heard that this would be happening because of the weather.  And, you can just about bet that when the prices go down, it will be like the price of gas which is also skyrocketing.  Here it is going up 5 - 10 cents a week, and when/if it goes down, it will inch down a penny or 2 every few weeks.

I pointed out all of the postings about this forum to my sister and she took a look in her pantry of all of her recent purchases of the store brand from one of the big chains - the packaging has not gotten smaller, it's staying the same size.  And, I don't mind buying the store brands, I find that not only are they cheaper, but for the most part the quality is just as good as the name brands.

And I've noticed for a long while now that some flavors of Toll House Chips (sorry VBB!!) are smaller: milk chocolate chips are 11.5 oz., and butterscotch chips are 11 oz. So if I want to double a batch of whatever I'm baking, I have to buy 2 bags of chips or settle for fewer chips in the recipe. Fortunately Semi-sweet and White chips are still 12 oz.

I was creating a grocery list from my local grocery store's website and noticed that it said 30 oz jar of mayo...then I checked another brand...again 30 oz, then another..30 oz...I haven't a clue as to how long this has been going on.  I do know one thing...you see jars that say "4 free ounces" but you don't see any that say "2 ounces less for more"

The reason store and plain label brands are as good as the major brands is because they are mainly packaged and canned by the same companies. The name brand charges more because of advertising costs and the store brands and plain labels do not have that overhead.

Ann, If you are getting 13 oz in your former 16 oz coffee can, you are lucky. My husbands favorite is now 11 oz. at almost double the cost.

I love a cup a tea and I just noticed that the amount of tea in the bags are less.  It's less than half!! 

Then I read that cotton and coffee are going up in price and of course gas prices are going up!

It's sad...really, really sad.  What are people suppose to do and with unemployment getting worse, it's very hard for the American families today!

I seem to remember that various flavors of chips have been in smaller bags for some years now.  At least Nestles Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips are still 12 ounces.  And, yes, I still like to occasionally buy a bag of chocolate chips just to eat them.  Nothing but Nestles will do for that.

I just bought a package of bathroom tissue that advertized 12 MEGA rolls equal to 48 regular rolls.  Frankly they look like the old double rolls to me.  Single rolls must have 3 sheets on them.  Did you notice that the rolls are narrower too?
