What has changed is that for the past three years sewing patterns had been .25 each, but two weeks ago the price jump to .99 each. As a side note, I can buy sewing patterns new for .99 when they go on sale at the local fabric and crafts stores.”
A correction to a previously posted item: The Applegate Farms Organic Hot Dogs (mentioned by Reader L.C. in Inflation Watch on September 13th) did in fact go from 8 to 7 hot dogs per pack and remain at the same price, but what L.C. might not have realized is that while the new package contains only 7 hot dogs, it has remained the same weight as the 8 hot dog pack. The 12 ounce weight is now distributed among 7 hot dogs instead of 8, making each hot dog in the new pack 14% larger than before. My apologies for posting any dezinformatsaya.
