weeeell, we bought a couple of extra Bombay Sapphire

London Dry Gin. . . to tide us over our next disaster ;-) not sure how many rolls of toilet paper can be bartered with one bottle of Bombay Sapphire, though.

Shopping by unit price

I don't know too many people who look at the unit price when they shop. A couple of years ago I found that some of the store brands packaged to look like you're getting a price break on buying multiples are actually higher in price than name brands. Since then I always try to shop by unit price. It's been an eye opener.

It's also pretty eye opening when shopping in the "Tide" aisle and going by unit price.

All I can discern from this is that

the Tide is turning!

Yes, we're turning back to the barter system.

When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.

Have you been to a Staples lately??!

The STAPLES near me just remodeled and I was literally taken aback by the fact that they have removed 5 aisles of products to make room for a vast open space in the middle of the store just for TOILET PAPER and PAPER TOWELS. I asked what was going on and the manager explained to me that the "breakroom supplies" have consistently been making them more money so they decided to invest more floor space to it.

OK I'm having problems with this change.

Toilet Paper

Speaking of inflation, two years ago, I bought a big bulk package of toilet paper. When I got it home, I marked it with the price and date, thinking I could measure inflation and have a valuable commodity at the same time--that's my thinking every time I buy some necessity in bulk: buy now, cheaper.

Then I moved, and about a year later, I unpacked it and used the remainder. I went to get the same package again and was astonished to see that it was exactly the same price. I checked, and it was the same number of rolls. But I knew inflation had to be there, somehow, and sure enough, they had taken a quarter inch off the width of the roll. Fewer square feet of paper.

Something to think about, if you can't afford gold.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

I do the same, BUT:

If you measure it from side to side in comparison to the new rolls, you will find it is a bit less. I suppose that tiny bit really adds up.

I love my country
I am appalled by my government

I got the USPS tape because it was cheaper.

The width was the same but the inside cardboard tube has a bigger diameter. Doh!

Fool me once shame on you. Fool me twice shame one me. Fool me all day long and my name is GW

In peru

People trade all sorts of things for Toilet Paper and a bar of soap. They dont drink as much Coffee as Americans, and if they did its mostly milk, Cafe con leche.

so store Toilet Paper because people will trade it for goods and services as they do in other countries who have suffered from Hyperinflation.
