I was just going through the grocery store flyers for the week. I notice that tuna is on sale and I'm down to about 2 cans. The price is 2/$1. I'm assuming it's on the 6 oz. cans. And then I notice this---now the cans are FIVE oz.!!! When did that happen???? I see this sale price at 2 different stores for 2 different name brands. Both are now 5 oz.

It makes me so mad when companies do this! Keep the price the same or maybe even raise it, but give you less product. And, btw, a good sale during Lent on canned tuna used to be THREE/$1!

Have you noticed this give-you-less-for-the-same/increased-price on other things?

I'm not sure when it happened, but I noticed the other day that most of the bread loaves are now 20oz instead of 24.
