Has anybody noticed...

what companies are doing these days to make an extra buck?  I think they are hoping we will not notice.  Here is one example:IMG_5682

You have to look hard to see it because the picture and wording is kind of small.  On the left is my old box of Arm and Hammer baking soda fridge pack-- it says change every 3 months.  The current one on the right says to change every 30 days.  I can guarantee you the formula for baking soda hasn't changed.

Has anyone noticed Pepsi products are now 8 packs and 18 packs instead of 12 and 24 packs?  I don't care for Pepsi at all, but I do like root beer and am not picky about the brand, so I often buy whichever is the best deal.  So I look and see Mug root beer is 3 for $9 and I think, "that's not a bad price" until I pull it off the shelf and realize the pack has shrunk.  An 8 pack looks ridiculous.  I won't be buying that brand...

Have any of you noticed this with other products?
