things were so affordable back in the 1970's through the 1990's. damm inflation

Here in Oz anyway, wages were a lot less back then.

I saw an add for a toaster in 1951 catalog, it was $21.00
Today, that would be $204.
You can get a brand new toaster, a nicer one for $30

$21 was a huge amount of money to pay for a toaster in 51 !

That's because people got a paid living wage to make them in the U.S.
Now they are made by slaves
