Things that used to cost a dollar a dozen>>>
Doughnuts -- and coffee was a dime, but refills were only a nickle.
Gum drops -- from the big glass jar at the candy shop, and that goes for licorice whips, too
Stamps -- when first class postage was six cents, airmail took a separate stamp worth eight cents.
Eggs -- a bargain when you consider each egg is a day's work for a chicken.
Limes -- only two weeks ago at Sav-Mart. I bought two dozen, and they lasted only a week because I love 'em so
Jelly glasses -- You wonder why juice glasses are so small? Because that's the size jelly came in, and you saved the jar as a drinking glass. They must have cost more with the jelly in them.
Pepsi-Cola -- Introduced in 12 oz bottles when Coca-Cola came in eight ounce bottles. Their jingle was "Twelve full ounces, that's a lot...nickle,nickle, nickle."
Cookies -- Yum
Saturday Evening Post -- The weekly magazine cost a nickle, delivered by a kid earning pennies on his magazine route. Liberty, too, but Life was a dime.
But that is all I can remember right now. Perhaps you can think of some more.
