Dollar buys less than it did in the past

Editor:
My ice cream comes in containers of only 1 and a half quarts, instead of full half gallons.

They say, ďAt least we didnít raise the price.Ē

My sugar comes in 4-pound bags, instead of 5-pound bags, now.

They say, ďAt least we didnít raise the price.Ē

Now, my generic, store-brand, rough-on-the-backside, wood-chip-laden toilet paper is being manufactured in a thinner width, thus less paper per roll.

The previous rolls of this type toilet paper were 450 2-ply sheets at 4.5 inches by 4 inches. The new rolls of toilet paper are now 473 2-ply sheets at 4 inches by 4 inches, supposedly coming in at 52.5 square feet.

I did the math. The supposed 23 extra sheets on the new roll do not make up for the significant amount of product they shaved off the outside edge of the roll.

Good thing is, they keep saying: ďAt least we didnít raise the price.Ē
