Inflation is beginning to niggle. Our monthly gas bill just took a huge leap upwards and I've been noticing how our weekly shopping bills have been climbing.
At the beginning of the week I decided I'd give up meat- partly because I'm tired of it, but also because I thought it would save us money. Only it won't- because we'll just be spending more on things like bread and cheese and eggs.
I've not been paying much attention to the prices of things in the shops. Time I did. I think of bread as cheap- essentially, fundamentally cheap- but it isn't, is it? Last time I took any notice- which I suppose was last year- the loaf we normally buy cost 89p. I just checked with Ailz and she tells me it now costs £1.20.
