    Thumbs up Beware: Brand-new Bogus Boxes of Borax

    Just hit Wally-World for some Borax. I found that everything on the shelf had shrunk from 76 ounces to 65 ounces. Remainder of box is identical.....

    Oh great, now I have to recalculate how many boxes I need for a refill on the pool.

    I saw that a couple of weeks ago. Did you notice that the price was the same. 14% price increase. Sneaky.

    I think most people would not notice the change in quantity. I only notice since there still was one of the old larger sized boxes on the shelf when I bought some recently.
