  • You are right about newspaper pages. Many have gone through web width reductions to save paper costs. I believe it was 60" then 58", 54" and now some are at 50" and below.

    There are several marketing reasons that the box might change but it would be a real shocker if anyone was giving more for the money, so if you ever determine that, please let us know.

  • I have had to return to the store and buy addition ingredients for use to get 16oz or 2 cups when buying pre-mixes or ingredients like raisins or it's 12oz when most recipes call for 2 cups or a's more expensive to buy 2 packages each for items needed in a recipe...not to mention the excess that's not needed ...1 1/2 x the recipe now covers the upscaling but feeding only me here at the house does give me extra and a reason to share with my neighbors when I cook.

  • And I guess that everyone has noticed that a one pound tub of margarine is only 15 ounces. I need to check but I think that if you buy the 2 half-pound set, they may still be 8 ounces each; at least they were still after the big tub drawdown.
