Default Re: Why must some companies make price increases that are sneaky--not straightforward

There is actually a broader point than just downsizing: It is the compromising of quality.

That body wash that I mentioned previously--which had been downsized a bit--has also been watered down considerably.

I just opened it yesterday--and noticed it immediately. And my wife also noticed it--and was quite upset by it.

Yes, I like low prices. But when that means compromising quality, that is no bargain. Not really. It is just cheapness.
