If you eat food, you need to read this:
It's about how companies are "shorting" you in the products you buy every day. I remember, way back when I was a kid, and my mom discovered that the 5# bag of Imperial Sugar was only 4#. She was so upset. I'd never seen her that upset about sugar.
Well, it's happening all over again. To me, it's another reason to buy generics. Like at Aldi. They don't pay the massive overhead on ads that most brands do. I like to pay for the actual food, not the packaging.
The key to fighting this is to PAY ATTENTION. Manufacturers are counting on you being distracted, busy, talking on your cell phone in the grocery aisles (I hate that, major pet peeve).....meanwhile, they're dipping further into your wallet. Don't let 'em.
