To the Editor,
Re: Keep food costs under control, Letters, Jan. 13.
Has anyone else noticed that the sizes of jars, especially with jam, have become smaller and smaller, to the point where we are now paying much more for less product? Also, fewer beans and more juice in pork and beans, smaller packages of instant oatmeal, etc.
All boxes and packages containing product seem to have become slightly smaller and yet prices continue to climb.
It is definitely time for the government to look at wage and price controls; in the meantime, I am stripping my garden of all ornamentals and replacing them with fruit trees, berry bushes and vegetables.
