Somebody Should Start The "Stuff Costs Too Much" Party



2002 Average - $1.44

2012 Average - $3.73

Stuff costs too much.  Seriously.  Every time I go to the grocery store these days, I am absolutely horrified by the prices. 
I try not to buy anything that is not on sale, but the problem is that I am discovering that the new sale prices are the old regular prices.  So now paying what used to be "full price" is supposedly a "good deal".  The other way that they are trying to hide rising prices is by shrinking package sizes.  As if we wouldn't notice that a box of 21 garbage bags is now being sold for the exact same price that a box of 25 garbage bags used to be sold for. -- Michael @ The Economic Collapse
