I don't remember ... but I DO remember that in 1964 you could get a "meal" from McDonalds for 35 cents: hamburger, fries and milkshake. I was in high school and would try to scrape my pennies together for a meal.
And in 1972, butter was 25 cents a pound. I had started living on my own and buying my own food, so I remember the cost of butter.
Since then ... well things just go up in price all the time, so you stop paying attention.
Fortunately, your income goes up too.
I remember when $450 a month was a manageable monthly salary.

No, I can't guess, and I can't remember either, and I was buying all those things in 1985.
