 It always seems like everything is more expensive these days, but according to an analysis published in U.S. News & World Report, MANY things we buy are A LOT LESS expensive now than they have been in YEARS!
     For example, the report shows while food prices are up-- the cost of small kitchen appliances like coffee makers, toasters, and blenders has dropped by about 23 percent! And if you need a new set of dishes, prices are down about 28 percent.
    Another area where you’ll find falling prices-- beyond Walmart-- is with cameras! Prices have dropped a whopping 64% since 2000.
