Losing weight

Nothing to do with watching your figure I’m afraid, just watching a different kind of pound disappear (source)

Been saying this for years.
Prices may stay the same, but the weights don’t.
You’re not using more of a product, you are paying for less.

I’ve already noticed little increases on my food analysis spreadsheet.
Three years ago, our average food bill was around £22 a week.
Two years ago, that had crept up to £25.
Last year, it was nearer £30, and I put it down to a change of shopping tactics.

Although so far I have managed to keep within budget, my money is not purchasing what it did a year ago.


Read the label,
Do the Math,
If you’re getting less,
Put it back!
Save your money,
Try another shop,
Get a better bargain,
Give the Big Boys the chop!

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    yes, there’s been plenty of inflation, they’re just not reporting it properly any more

  2. It’s happening here as well – pay the same price, get less food in the package!
