No, I’m not talking about that classic shrinkage scene in Seinfeld.
I’m talking about the almost imperceptible shrinkage of the items we buy in the store that leaves us coming home with less product.
Paint cans always contained one gallon, or 128 ounces.
But these days you get only 116 ounces. That’s ten percent less paint!
And since the actual size of the can has stayed the same, you might not even realize you’re getting less than you used to.
Keep a close eye on other products you buy to see if you’re getting less than you used to.
