Are Packaged Items Getting Smaller?

The object of this post deals with mascara, but before all you guys click out, may I ask -- have you noticed the razor blade packs getting smaller? Or that the shaving cream dispenser is two ounces less? I wonder. As far as mascara goes, I recently bought a small size package. But when I got home and saw the measly skinny brush that came with it, I pulled out my used unit and discovered that the way more lush brush fit the new black goop receptacle. Yay! I threw out the new weenie mascara brush. So, I notice that the price is the same for many things. But the package or portion is less.

I think I first noticed that the 5lb bag of sugar is no longer 5lbs and the can of tuna has gotten smaller. Next the dozen eggs will be 10. It has got to stop!!

They are very clever at doing this. The weight or packet gets smaller but the price stays the same.

That's good that the old brush fits in the old one. I had seen and read about that toilet paper packaging was going to be smaller. I think the reason is waste less.

Less waste to deal with in the future is a great way to start minimizing rubbish on this planet

The prices of things are going up while the amount that is in the containers is smaller
