Rising Food Prices are Coming
As food prices continue to climb and inflation rates remain at historic highs, it’s essential to be prepared. Evaluate your budget and prioritize what items you can spend money on while saving for the future. Consider switching to cheaper grocery stores or buying items in bulk to get more bang for your buck. Become a mindful shopper by comparing product sizes, weights, and prices so that you know exactly what you’re paying for.
What is Shrinkflation
Shrinkflation is when you purchase a food item at the same price but has been downsized in size, quantity, or weight. This often happens with products such as cereals and staples like milk and butter. Not only does this need to be clarified about how much value they are getting for their money, but it can also lead to frustration if shoppers feel that prices remain stagnant despite decreasing product size. Knowing this effect can help you evaluate if you’re still receiving good value for your spending. Evaluate if you’re still receiving a good deal for your spending.
