Have you seen that on products before? It is usually because the size is bigger or has 'bonus' ounces, etc. But, have you seen them say that about the shrinking packaging they are good at recently?! No, I suppose not! I read an article in Consumer Reports today about it and told my husband. He said the toilet paper in each bathroom was a different size. Then, I remembered! Last week, when I changed the roll, I thought the holder looked a little longer than normal, but went on about my business of the day and forgot. So, I got to looking and reading, and yes, they downsized the toilet paper we use! Maybe we would not have noticed if they had changed the size the other way!

Last week, I bought Lysol cleaner (the concentrated one) and when I opened it, I said I wished I had an older bottle, for I do believe they have diluted it! But, I can't be sure about that being I'm just going on memory. hehehe
Well, let's enjoy our skinnier products. At least something is losing weight and size!

YEP! Down size. Just what we need.
But not in that way! I think the spray lysol does not smell as strong.
But ~ like you, maybe it's me.

Just wish I could down size a dress size. t'aint that easy!

Yes they are doing that with most things, if you look at amounts on cans packages etc, instead of raising prices way higher they are definitely down sizing, with all things, I am with Aliene wish we could down size a dress size, lol hugs and the times are rough, but the rough get going, love ya,

I saw that on the news a couple of weeks ago. But they still charge the very same price for it!
