    Anyone found any not so obvious examples of products being downsized?

    Although I hate eating there. MacDonald's has obviously shrunk their product while maintaining price.

    Now I discover my brand of TP has taken a hit.

    There is some other interesting stuff on that page.

    Just about everything is being downsized, except my company, hard to downsize it unless I fire myself, which I am considering.

    Seems to me if you are eating less at McDonalds then you won't be pooping as much. Ergo, you will need less TP.

    A ten pound bag of ice has been only eight for several years.

    Yesterday, I saw a seven pound bag at a C-store.

    Same price.

    I'd fire myself but then I am afraid I would sue me.
    Everyone has a purpose in life..........even if it's to be a bad example.

    Seek first to understand, before seeking to be understood.

    So many things are being cheapened and reduced in size, I have seen it for years. They think no one notices gradual changes.
    Small things but they all ad up.
    Sad.

    Its' all around us!

    What appears to be a one pound can of Maxwell House coffee, not anymore, 13oz.

    Kingsford charcoal, that 20 lb. bag you bought all your life, nope, not anymore 18 lb.

    Hell, I think the refrigerant manufacturers were in on the ground floor with the blends....they look like 30's, but not so fast......
