Monetary Monday - Buyer Beware

Caveat Emptor - Buyer Beware.  Know what you are buying before you buy it. Get a carfax before you buy a used car.  Know the return policy before you buy clothes without trying them on.  Pay attention to the prices and look for hidden increases.

Heres a little tip for all those companies out there feeling the pinch of the recession: Don't increase your prices at the same time you decrease the amount in a package. People will notice.  Especially when the product is diapers in a box.  We like those boxes.  We keep those boxes.  We store things in those boxes.  So you bet your life we are gonna notice when the box says 82 instead of 92 and we are paying more.  Not gonna make your customers very happy with that one.


Same goes for all your reusable packages and refills.  Make sure that the refill matches the amount on the container its for.  We will notice.

Of course all this can be avoided with use of cloth products.
