we're having a discussion here http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/588516 in which some hounds tell us they've stopped -- or intend to stop -- buying certaIn products from certain manufacturers because the price has increased or the size or volume has decreased.
i'm curious as to how many of you have done this; specifically, which particular products have you stopped buying for either of these two reasons? be specific. also, if you wish, tell us what you "substituted."
we've hashed through the economics arguments, and the allegations of "thievery." so let's SKIP THOSE HERE, please. stay focused like a laser beam.
