Buy Less, Pay More? Seriously?

Buy Less, Pay More? Seriously?

I'm sure you've noticed lately we're paying more and more, while actually getting WAY less. The price of most things has increased. If it hasn't increased, they instead decreased the amount you get, which is essentially the same as a price increase. My grocery bill for my family of five has gone from $100-150 a week to $150-200 a week. To add insult to injury, I'm not getting even close to the same amount of food.

This has never been more evident than this past weekend. As a rare treat for my son, I caved and bought him a bag of Doritos. When we got home, I opened the bag for him and this huge bag was only half full. I was thinking they should have just used a smaller bag instead of tricking us into thinking we're getting a big bag. Then I poured him some in a bowl and noticed how very little seasoning was on them. Ten years ago when I'd buy a bag of Doritos, they were covered in zesty goodness and now they're more like sprinkled.

Why do we offer wedding favors at weddings?

Why do we offer wedding favors at weddings?

The Wedding favor tradition goes back to the Europeans as it was a symbol of wealth and royalty. The very first wedding favor was called a bonbonniere. Which is a small box made out of precious stones, porcelain or Crystal that was filled with sugar cubes. At the time it was not only given out at weddings but in all important ceremonies. These trinket boxes were given as a way to bestow their good luck on their guests. Then once sugar became affordable we started offering Jordan Almonds which are candied almonds~ They symbolized fertility, longevity, wealth, health and happiness.

A Wedding Favor should be made to look special like they were prepared just for you and not out of a box. They don't have to be expensive, just a token from your special day. Most people especially family members love to keep a keepsake from your special day.
