"Of milk eggs or bread goes up, you're likely spot the price hike. But you might not notice when packaged goods are downsized slightly made a bit smaller, So you get less for your money. Cuomo's consumer man, Herb Weisbaum just wrote about this for checkbook dot org and he's here with his magnifying glass. This inconspicuous shrinkage known as downsizing fewer sheets on a roll of toilet paper skinnier paper towels. Bless coffee in the can less peanut butter in the jar has been going on for decades, and there's no end in sight. Well, it's a sneaky way to pass on a price increase because the package pretty much looks the same as it always has been. Sometimes it's even identical, but you're getting less for the same amount of money. Edgar Dworsky runs a website Consumer world org He's been warning people about the downsizing for more than 25 years. And recently published a new examples on his site. Manufacturers know that consumers are very price sensitive. If that orange juice goes from 2 99 the carton 23 19. Consumers will see it and they made by a different brand. But if the manufacturer just reduces the contents of the product, most consumers are not going to notice that and they can get away with it. Package designers have a number of ways a number of tricks to redesign a package in order to put less in a package. It looks like it's the same. Size is always can you run down a couple of examples of how they do this? Well, there was an example of a serial. If you looked at the box of cereal straight on the old and the new they looked identical, yet the new one was, you know, a couple of ounces less than the old one. What did they do? They made the box narrower, so the consumer really wouldn't be able to spot the difference easily. Then there's a classic case of Skippy peanut butter. Peanut butter forever was 18 ounces. Be decided to downsize couple of ounces to around 16 or 16 in a fraction they made the bottom of the container concave. So basically, there was this in dent that was put into the bottom. So the product look the same on the shelf but actually have less. So what's the takeaway here for a savvy shopper? When we go to the store looking to buy a product? How do we look for downsizing? And how do we deal with it? Well, you have to become net weight conscious. That means products you buy over and over again. Take a look at what the net weight is. And periodically when you buy the item double check. Is it still that same net weight if you actually encounter a case where the item has been downsized a good ideas to look at a competitive product. Maybe the other name brand competitor hasn't downsize she had. It usually takes them several months before they catch up with the industry leader. And if that doesn't work, look at the store brand store brands, usually the last to downsize their price. Products.
