I usually do these inc or dec one or two sts in from the edge but it depends on whether there are single increases or a pattern of increases on succeeding rows. For a 2k x 1p rib, I'd dec by knitting the knits together. If there are following decreases, the pattern will keep being 'eaten into' as you decrease. Or you can decrease by binding off at the beginning of the row and then at the beginning of the next row. The same is true for the increases.
