    From cellphones to the size or packages of food, have you noticed any product being made smaller and smaller as time goes on?

    It seems to me that candy bars and packaged pastries have gotten smaller - the only way to prevent the prices going up I suppose.

    As for electronics, the human hands are the limitations to how small they can get and some are already too small for my use.

    Nice marketing trick. Decrease size while keeping the price the same. But now you need more so you have to buy extra.

    Oh, I definitely have. I don't mind it for certain things where I'd rather pay more or have a little less as long as they don't compromise the quality.

    Have you seen the size of reeses peanut butter cups lately? Even the Vitamin Water, the bottles have shrunk, especially if you buy them in a 6 or 8 pack. The prices surely have not shrunk though.

    I just got a small coffee and a coffee cake muffin at Dunkin' Donuts and it seems both were smaller than in the past.

    On a good note (even tho it is costing me money) I got a Milky Way Dark at the checkout line the other day and it seems to be about a third smaller than they used to be. But, I'm not supposed to be eating them anyhow, so less damage to my diet.
