Have you ever had a conversation with your mom, dad or grandparents about what things used to cost in “the good old days”?
I hear it all the time from my dad. He’s constantly talking about how expensive things are now compared to when he was my age and younger.
AAG.com has put together a great info graphic that compares item’s prices in 1963 to what they cost today.
For example, a bottle of Coke used to cost $.05!
Now a bottle of Coke is anywhere from $1 to $1.50 and sometimes more, and the bottles are plastic not glass! That’s a pretty steep increase.
You can see the full graphic that has 24 different items shown with what they cost in 1963 and what they cost today
a few examples that kind of blew my mind:
I wish I could get milk for $1.04! My family goes through at least 3 gallons a week, sometimes more!
Check out the graphic and leave me a comment telling me what the most surprising or shocking price jump was for you!
