I just noticed that the “Paw Points” I get for buying kitty litter dramatically decreased in value. A few years ago, I cashed in some points for some merchandise. It cost me 600 points, the equivalent of a dozen buckets of kitty litter. Those two prizes now cost 1700 points or 34 buckets of litter. My wife has also noticed this in gift card earnings and the size of containers in grocery stores (1/3 Gallon containers became 1/4 gallon containers at the same price).
I guess it’s better than laying people off.
