Nice post Adam. The biggest packaging change I noticed lately was the big change with Starbucks. But at least they didn't change the amount you were getting. Now, I'm curious about a couple of other things I've seen lately. Hmmm....

Interesting to see the changes in packaging, and the affect on pricing. Our household is a pulp household so we would not buy Tropicana anyway.


Although we still call it a POUND of coffee, when is the last time you could actually BUY a pound? Over the years coffee has gone from 16 oz. to 13 oz. and now down to 11.5 oz. Thats MORE than a 25% price increase. If they actually kept the 16 oz. pkg. and raised it by 25% people would quit buying, but instead they basically STOLE their 25% increase by reducing their product.

I had heard a lot of talk this year when grocery prices first started going up that its the first increase in ___ years. Nope. They have been having HUGE increases for many, many years. They just hoped the consumers did not notice.

When we continually have to purchase less and less at the grocery store, yet it cost us more and more, how can we NOT NOTICE?

When you see NEW and IMPROVED, LOOK OUT!

This is outright THEFT by DECEPTION!

About a thousand cuts

  • "Death by a thousand cuts" is just a great expression, isn't it? Anyone who has been through a tough project has heard it before. I like to think of this blog as the opposite. Navigating through all those issues to achieve excellence is a passion of mine, along with being a dad to three amazing boys and all things Red Sox and Patriots. Thanks to Len Devanna for pushing me to start capturing my thoughts and Lee Cullivan for the banner photo. More about me here. Thanks for reading.
